Teach Kids to Save + Give Back This Summer

This post is sponsored by Capitol Federal® Savings Bank.

I opened a saving account at Capitol Federal for my 6-year-old daughter, Layla, because I want her to understand financial responsibility.

I want Layla to always know that even though things are changing around her the hard work, discipline, and learning about finances will never change for her. I want her to always know and understand that she can financially back herself, her dreams, and never have to depend on any person to do that for her.

I know if I teach her early to save for a rainy day, she can also be helpful to other people. If she’s comfortable financially, then any extra that she has, she can help others. Being comfortable in your finances is not only great because you have a chance to make your dreams a reality, but you can also invest in others.

Join Layla and open your Blue Bucks Savings Account this Summer to help your kids learn to save and give back!

I'm Sherita! I am married to my BFF Scott and we have 5 awesome kiddos. We are a blended family, and every day is an adventure in our home. I was born in Kansas City and raised in Colorado Springs for part of my childhood. After some moving around and life changes. I decided to come back home, best decision I have made! We call North Kansas City home and we absolutely love it. Its the small-town feel within the big city. When I am not taking my kids somewhere, or knee-deep in laundry I enjoy crafting, bible journaling, being involved in my kids' schools, and thrift store shopping! So basically I am busy crafting, momma who loves God and a good deal! Nice to meet y'all.
