Ultimately a savings account should be started for children in infancy, and the child can contribute when they're old enough to grasp the concept. This makes saving second nature to the child and provides a great foundation for life. Having a nest egg is important for life's little unplanned obstacles, whether a broken car or medical emergency. The earlier children start saving the better off they will be!
It's easy to pretend you won't grow old, unless you're unlucky you will. So when you have your own kids and your own home, you may be very thankful to your older sensible self.
