For parents, one of the easiest ways to begin educating kids about investing is to make it fun and to look for teachable moments.
For example, open a child bank account with a debit card for your child. Some of the best debit cards for kids and teens like Greenlight offer parental controls, investing options and savings goals development.
Since you still have to be 18 to invest in the stock market by yourself, you can overcome this hurdle by opening a custodial account. With a custodial account, parents can gift their children things like free stocks and bonds or real estate without major tax consequences.
