I have a 13 and 15-year-old and each have a Heartland account with a debit card. Working with Heartland has given them freedom and independence with their money and has given me peace of mind. They are learning how to manage money for the long term. They monitor their accounts with mobile banking, while I'm able to monitor their spending. Thank you for providing my kids a safe place to learn the importance of managing money.
