Mydoh was created to help parents teach their kids real-world money skills. And now it’s even easier to assist kids in understanding the value of money with our new Add a Parent feature

“The ability to add a second parent to your child’s Mydoh account at no additional cost was in  direct response to listening to our users,” says Rina Whittaker, Chief Product Officer at Mydoh. “It’s a feature that many Mydoh families needed and asked for. Enabling more than one parent or guardian to manage tasks, allowances, and send money, creates additional opportunities to share the responsibility of raising money smart kids.” 

By adding a second parent to your child’s account, both parents will also be able to teach kids financial literacy by keeping track of your kids’ spending and goals. 

The new Add a Parent feature gives both parents the ability to:

  • Add or edit tasks and allowances
  • Send money to your kids
  • Lock or unlock your child’s Smart Cash Card
  • Withdraw money from the shared wallet

How to Add a Parent or Guardian in the Mydoh app 

Adding an additional parent to your child’s account is simple:

  1. Go to settings in the Mydoh app
  2. Click on “Family Profile”
  3. Click “Add New”
  4. Select “Parent”
  5. Fill in the required details to add an additional parent
