When it Comes to Your Child’s Future, Now is Better than Later

As a parent, there are so many different activities and items that pull your dollar every direction. For newer parents, it may be the diapers that you are going through every month or the newest toy that catches your child’s eye. For parents with older children, it may be the cheer competitions seemingly every weekend or the countless number of school fundraisers that you end up helping to cover the cost. Investing money for your child’s future is an expense that does not present a bill right now, but it can turn out to be so beneficial. Illustrated below, you can see the benefits that investing a little bit every month can have for your child’s future.

If you saved $50 a month for 18 years at a 7% growth rate, you would have $21,536 saved up for your child.        

This can make a massive difference for a young person just starting out in life, whether they use the money for school, a down payment on a home, or even starting their own business! There are many different options to save for your child’s future, so check with a financial professional to help you decide which route you should take.
