I have a twelve year old daughter, and she has $500 in savings in her bank account. How can I help her with saving for college with this amount? Would savings bonds be helpful?

“Clark Howard, Kids and Money tackles subjects like how to…”

Clark is a savvy guy but I’ve never cared for the emphasis he puts on trying to game the system by avoiding one’s financial obligations. To Clark every debtor, even the most chronic deadbeat, is a victim. Hopefully his sermonizing in the primetime special will be on a higher moral plane.
