A New Amazon Program Lets Teens Shop With Their Own Account as Parents Oversee the Activity

Learning how to save money and make smart shopping decisions are essential skills for success in today’s world.

It’s never too early to start discussing financial matters with your children. How to be responsible with your savings, how to budget and how to be a smart shopper are lessons that can be taught at a young age.

But how can you properly teach your kids these valuable lessons? Amazon‘s new program allows kids to manage their own money, shop and make financial decisions while parents oversee and stay in the know.

Parents are able to set up their own personal log-in so that they can give their children freedom while monitoring the accounts activity. Every time a teen makes a purchase, the parents are alerted – keeping them up to speed.
