You Can Now Add a Co-Parent or Guardian to a GoHenry Account

When it comes to financial education, we’re firm believers in keeping it in the family. So as part of our mission to make every kid good with money, you can now invite a co-parent or guardian to help manage your GoHenry account with their own secure login.


To get started, just send an invitation to your child's co-parent from the GoHenry app. Once they create an account, you'll both be able to see an overview of your child’s GoHenry account. You'll also both be able to manage spending rules and limits, receive real-time notifications, and manage tasks. Even better, you and your co-parent can gain extra insight into your child’s spending and saving habits, and watch as they grow in confidence and independence.

How it works

It only takes a minute to invite a co-parent or guardian to help manage your GoHenry account. Just click "add a parent" from the GoHenry app to share an invitation link. Your co-parent will just need to follow the link to install the app, complete their registration, and set up their own separate login.


Once they’ve registered, they’ll be able to do everything you can, including discussing your account with GoHenry Member Services. The only thing your co-parent won't be able to do is add or remove a payment card. As the account owner, you’ll still be responsible for all activity on the account, but now you’ll have an extra pair of hands to help you manage your child’s money.


Money talks

We’re on a mission to make every kid good with money—but we can’t do it without you. If you want to kickstart your child’s financial education but don’t know where to start, adding a co-parent or guardian to your account is a great way to open up conversations about money. Talking to your child about things like earning (from allowance and tasks), saving, spending, and giving can really help them understand the basics. Over time, this can lay the foundation for discussing more complex family finance topics like paying bills, earning interest, investing, and using credit.


Adding another parent to your child's account also means that you can both keep an eye on their spending habits. You’ll both get real-time notifications, and can actively manage your child’s earnings—whether that means setting new tasks, checking them off, or transferring money from the parent balance into your child’s account.


It’s a great way for the people who care most about your child to get involved in their financial education—and that makes every family better with money.
