Which savings personality fits your child? Be on the lookout for all 12 types!

Did you know that April is National Credit Union Youth Month? Throughout April, our branches are going to be celebrating our youngest members and helping them learn about money and ways to save. As part of the celebration, we're unveiling the theme, which is Give a Hoot About Saving! Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing a cute cast of owls that describe different saving personalities. Share with your children and figure out which one they are! 

Is your child a STAR Club® member? If not, stop by any of our branches in April to receive a special surprise when you sign them up for an account. We also have owl pens and coloring sheets available in our branches during April to share the Give a Hoot About Saving message. 

Without further ado, here are the first four savings personalities we have to share with you. We will be releasing two more posts with different savings types, so be on the lookout to find out which owl represents your child best! 

Sleepy Saver: for those who know they need to save and do it automatically!

Sleepy Saver: this saver has a schedule and will stick with it! Making their savings account deposits on a normal, automatic basis gives them more time to do what they love and helps them build a steady amount in their savings. 

Melancholy saver: when they don't want to save, but know they need to.

Melancholy Saver: they know they need to save, but they don't really want to. You can help this type of saver by giving them goals to reach, which gives them an understanding of why they need to save. Turning saving into something fun will encourage the Melancholy Saver and give them something good to look forward to. 

Huh saver: they know they need to save, but not quite sure why yet.

Huh? Saver: this may describe the youngest child in your family. They know saving is good, but they're not quite sure why. One way you can help explain it is through the Three S Strategy, which breaks down money management into three easy to understand categories. 

Happy Saver: those very special ones who are overjoyed every time they check their savings account or make a deposit.

Happy Saver: the Happy Saver loves to store coins in their piggy bank and then dump them into the coin sorter. Whether it's birthday money, their allowance, or simply coins they found from diving under the couch, this saver loves to watch their account grow! 

No matter what type of saver your child is, teaching them about money and ways to save more is always a good game plan! Discover creative ways to teach your child about money to jump start their journey to financial success today.
