Parents’ job makes them stay vigilant for 24 hours a day. When it comes to Amazon, kids are more exposed to the giant retailer’s charms than any other family members. Therefore, there are many questions and requirements for adults to buy this and that. Amazon has now a fix for this type of cases. The company decided to introduce teens directly to the system. They will gain their own Amazon account, yet only under parents’ supervision.
Teenagers Can Get Their Own Amazon Account and Even a Limited Budget
Every adult can now add secondary accounts intended for kids ages 13 to 17. In their turn, teenagers receive more benefits than ever. They have free hand to buy and stream content by themselves. However, there’s a catch. No order will go through without parents’ approval.
Parents will receive notifications every time their offspring places an order. There is another option for them if they are not excited about spending time reviewing their teens’ wishes. They can set up a pre-approved limit for their kids’ spending. This way, the little ones will learn how to manage their budgets on their own.
Michael Carr, the vice president of Amazon Households, released a public statement where he underlines the controversial background of teens. They start asking for independence before coming of age. At the same time, parents need to teach them responsibility so they can trust the youngsters. Therefore, Amazon created a secure medium where adults and teenagers collaborate for their shopping list.
“We’ve listened to families and have built a great experience for both teens and parents.”
Parents Will Be the Decisive Factors in Their Children’s Orders
Parents will receive notifications of their child’s shopping cart on their own Amazon account through email or text. Afterwards, they can make a decision based on reviews and price and check payment information and shipping address.
In their turn, teenagers can attach a note for their parents. They can explain this way why exactly they need or want the chosen products. Such an explanation can weigh heavily on parents’ decision whether to approve or not the order.
