My teenagers opened a checking account today. I gave them instructions before walking in on what to say to the teller, then stood back. 

Once one boy was unsure of an answer, looking at me, but I didn't jump in to answer and I let him fumble a bit until he got to the right answer. Once he had to ask the bank worker to clarify what they were asking.  

They needed me for a signature, but I did not speak except for a few times when the bank worker asked me direct questions.

Stand back. 

Don't jump in.

Let your teens fumble. 

They've got this, and if they don't, they will learn.
