Preparing kids for the “wild”

Will your kids be ready for the real world?

Teach your kids
good money habits
with the FamZoo
Virtual Family Bank


ALL WE HEAR THESE DAYS IS:
“BUY, BUY, BUY!” HOW DO I
TEACH MY KIDS TO RESIST
THOSE MESSAGES AND
HANDLE MONEY RESPONSIBLY?

I WISH I COULD EARN
SOME OF MY OWN
MONEY AND LEARN TO
MAKE MORE OF MY
OWN CHOICES.

I HAVE STRONG OPINIONS
ABOUT ALLOWANCE AND CHORES.
I NEED A SYSTEM THAT MATCHES
OUR FAMILY’S VALUES,
NOT SOMEBODY ELSE’S.

MY PARENTS SAID
THEY’D PAY ME AN
ALLOWANCE, BUT THEY
KEEP FORGETTING.
PRETTY LAME...
I’VE HEARD ABOUT
ONLINE ALLOWANCE
MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS.
FAMZOO SEEMS LIKE SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT. I WONDER IF
IT’S RIGHT FOR US...


I HEAR FAMZOO
TOTALLY ROCKS!

  • Create IOU accounts or prepaid card accounts to track spending, saving, and giving
  • Schedule automatic allowances to limit spending (optional)
  • Post chore checklists to pay for performance (optional)
  • Make savings goals to track progress and set expectations
 

Share teachable moments and practice good habits with your kids

 
2
  • Teach personal accountability and help your kids practice living within their means
  • Show the value of patient saving and the magic of compound interest

You’re done! But you can adjust and extend your bank as your child grows

 
3
  • Start simple for youngsters age 4 and up and add more sophistication through the “tween” and teen years
  • Add separate accounts and budgets for classic teen items like clothing
  • Make loans to your children to encourage the proper long-term care and appreciation for “big ticket” items like bikes, computers, cell phones, etc.

“FamZoo chore lists are completely awesome. They’ve eliminated the need for me to nag my kids about laundry and cleaning their rooms every week. They can check the list, do the chore and check it off themselves. They know if they don’t, FamZoo dings their account accordingly. It is a great lesson in responsibility.”

“The charitable giving is also great. Now the kids have their own funds to put towards charitable projects. This gives them a much closer sense of the meaning of giving when it comes out of their own specific savings and not my wallet.”

“We are loving FamZoo! It is a great tool to give the kids an allowance without always having to shell out a bunch of cash which we never seem to have. It is so easy to navigate through and get a quick snapshot of everyone’s accounts. It’s a breeze to enter transactions. It’s been such an easy way to teach our kids about using their money wisely since the money tree in our backyard isn’t doing so well.”

“We used to do something very similar to this by hand in the old-fashioned check book register. Periodically the kids would bring me their registers, we’d have to count how many weeks had passed since they were paid last, deduct for God and college savings, and finally get their spending balance. Obviously, this is so much easier.”

“The kids are enjoying their ability to check their current balance for their spending money. Lauren loves to check her savings goal for that horse she dreams of. The bar graph showing her progress (however slow it may be) is a great visual for her.”

“I LOVE the donorschoose.org website that you recommended. What a great service to kids and to the teachers striving to provide them with a great education. Thank you for sharing that!”

“You guys are great. We love your site and definitely don’t tell you often enough.”

“My kids enjoy knowing how much money they have, not needing to keep track of the cash, and seeing their savings increase for responsible behavior! They are so much more likely to let go of a purchase if we ask if they want to pay for it. They are definitely making better choices and being more careful with purchases.”

“Reid loves FamZoo. Every penny he finds or earns goes into FamZoo. He gets great pleasure watching his account grow. As his charitable fund grows, it has given us a chance to discuss more serious topics and how he wants to contribute to others. It has also provided me with a powerful lever at times. He hates getting ‘bad behavior’ fines :)”
