Many parents regret letting children use credit cards

Recommended Posts


Having children results in an endless series of disappointments.  This one isn't particularly special.

I at least have enough sense not to let 8-Ball have access to any of my credit cards*

The definition of what age someone is no longer a kid has been moving higher. I am all for someone applying for their own credit cards once they got 18, assuming they have income (at least a job at McDonald's).

 

A parent giving their 15 year old their American Express Centurion card to use has nobody to blame but themselves if junior comes home in a Lamborghini. If a parent has half a brain, they can figure out how to give their kid a prepaid card if they do need plastic for something.
