Do you make them save it? All of it or just a portion? What if they're really young and money is tight? Do you use it for things they need? When my son was born we were given several hundred. The cards and checks were addressed to him, but we it to open a savings account for him. We don't take money out of it regularly, but if money was really tight and we needed something for him or something really important for ourselves-like one time when we got a flat tire-we would use it. What do you think of this?

Encourage them to save it, but I do allow our son to spend it so he can enjoy it as well. Do you have a separate savings account for yourselves? I think that money for your son was for anything he needed. You use it as you see fit.

We put their money in their own savings, I was thinking that hopefully when their old enough for a car maybe they'll have enough to help out. But if you absolutely had to take a loan from it, it's understandable. Please keep track and pay it back if you can though. My mom used to take any money I would get, and to this day I resent her for it. ( I know it's stupid but I do, and I wouldn't want you to have that problem)
