As parents, we should teach our children values like on how to save, and it should start while they are young.  As a verse in the Book of Provers that says “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

Frugality is a value that is needed to be taught to children today. Just like saving money in a piggy bank.

But to make kids saving safe, why not put it in a savings account in a bank under their names?

Yes, this is now possible since more banks now offer a Kiddie Accounts. This program will be expanded to cover teenagers as well.


The program was launched last March 8.
According to Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Governor Amando Tetangco, Jr., 19 years old and below will be able to open a savings account with a participating bank for just P100.

The accounts will not have any minimum maintaining balance required. 
Kiddie Accounts were converted to regular savings accounts when the account holder reached 13 years old.
Now, there are 17 banks that joined the program.

    Tetangco added, "Aside from targeting a wider market of savers, we also wish to help those who have started the habit of saving sustain it until they have graduated and started working,"
