Q: Are stocks or savings bonds better for kids? - H.K., Denver A: It depends. The stock market is best for long- term investments - at least five years, if not more. If the money will be spent on college, see how many years you have until your kids are 18. If it's for their future use as adults, it might grow for a few decades.
