- With parental controls & options, you can be as involved in your teen’s investing journey as you’d like

- Approve your teen's stock trades through the Bloom app, or turn on automatic approvals

- Fund your teen’s account with as little as $1, or allow them to fund their own account

- Restrict the types of stocks / ETFs that your teen can buy and sell with Parental Controls

Great for parents to their teens!

I’ve been using Bloom for a while now to monitor my teen’s learning progress. It was super easy to setup & the support team is amazing! I can’t wait to see the learning part of the app expand and appreciate the new allowance method Bloom gives our family. Sometimes my son spends too much on games so now, I give him half of his allowance through Bloom. This way his money is always used productively! We walk through the investing decisions together and love using Bloom’s risk ratings and time machine. Great work to the bloom team!

Ehh.. needs work.

My husband signed my son up for an account and he got a free stock, we deposited a little money for him to try it out and start learning about stocks and learning how to invest correctly instead of just buying stocks because he likes that company… but the only problem we have, there is no way to withdrawal the funds. He was so excited he gained $15 on a stock he purchased for $7 and it grew to $15. So he decided to sell it and wanted to withdrawal it to put with his allowance he’s been saving to buy a new video game, but it doesn’t give the parents an option to withdrawal the child’s funds. On the child’s side of the app, it does have a withdrawal option but when you click it, it says only a parent can’t withdrawal funds but there is no option on the parents side to withdrawal any funds but only deposit. Hopefully this gets fixed soon or we will have to close the account down because if we’re not able to withdrawal the funds then, there is no point in using this app because we don’t have money to just give away.

Hey! Thanks for reaching out! To clarify, you can absolutely withdraw your funds from your teen's Bloom account! If you go to the parent portal, under transfers you'll see two options to deposit or withdraw! All you need to do is hit withdraw, enter the amount, and a withdrawal will be initiated to deposit back in the bank.

We really love that your son has signed up, and started his journey investing with us and want to make sure he continues to have a great time on Bloom! Could you email us support@joinbloom.co so we can also look into your specific request and help provide you additional clarity?

My experience with Bloom

Over the last two months, I have been with zoom. I’m a teenager, so I originally thought it was going to be difficult to get into trading. However, my experience with Bloom was different, The created modules and quizzes that help you learn about beginner trading are extremely helpful when you are trying to get into the world of the stock market. Overall, Bloom has been great for me! I would recommend it to teens looking to make money in the long term!
