I wish my parents had the forsight to start that early, i had to drag Mom to the bank to start a savings account myself at the age of 8... poor bank manager got to count out $100 in coins and one doller bills. my family never had a required amount for save/ spend, interesting difference to see for other famillies. you dont say how long the longterm saved money stays put or what its for, (could it be for a big purchase, or cant be tuched 'till college?) but I recomend letting your spender children "run out" of money one time, to teach that when the money is gone, it stays gone untill next week, if it hasnt happened already.
