You can create an account for your kids. They just need to have an adult on the account with them, usually mom or dad, but it can be a grandparent, aunt, uncle, or other adult. This kind of account is called a custodial account. The kid or teen (referred to as the minor or beneficiary) owns the stock, while the adult (the custodian) has legal responsibility over the account.
Once the minor is of age, the assets in the custodial account legally belong to her.
