'BMOst of Summer' Financial Tip of the Day: Spark Your Child's 'Entrepreneurial 
Spirit' with a Summer Job 
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/13 -- As part of BMO
Financial Group's ongoing commitment to financial literacy and
'Making Money Make Sense', BMO is releasing a financial tip every day
in the summer to help Canadians make the 'BMOst of Summer' in 2013. 
'BMOst of Summer' Financial Tip of the Day: Spark your child's
'entrepreneurial spirit' with a summer job. 
Summer can be a great time to spark your child's interest in starting
a new or first job. Setting up a lemonade stand, running a paper
route or starting a babysitting service is a great way to encourage
kids' entrepreneurial spirit and get them excited about earning their
own money. 
Jobs like these show them that work can be fun and engaging, as well
as provide parents with an opportunity to discuss money management
basics including responsible spending and savings habits. 
"Helping children learn how to manage their own money earned from
summer work will allow them to appreciate the value of a dollar and
the importance of managing money responsibly," said Paul Dilda, Head
of North American Branch Channel, BMO Bank of Montreal.  
Mr. Dilda added that BMO Coin Counters can provide a fun and easy way
for kids to see the impact of their efforts: "The counters are able
to count Canadian coins at a rate of up to 4,000 per minute and then
generate a receipt for the total, which can be exchanged at the
branch for cash or deposited into a BMO bank account." 
BMO offers a number of products and services that can help Canadians
get more out of every dollar they spend this summer. For more details
