Being the mom of a pre-teen, I think this is a fantastic idea! Have you heard about PAYjr Visa Buxx? It's a chore and allowance system for kids. Plus, when Oldest Princess becomes a teen, she can get a prepaid VisaBuxx card.

The whole system just seems like a win-win! I can assign the chores and then print out a chore chart. The system will even send an email to Oldest Princess reminding her of the chore and how much it's worth, so I don't have to sound like a nagging mom. I can do it the high-tech way! *wink*

Oldest Princess can watch her savings add up. She can also learn about budgeting for what she really needs, as opposed to what she thinks she wants. Her thinking is changed when it's her money.

In a few months, when she becomes a teen, she can earn the prepaid MasterCard. I can track where she's spending her money. It's such a great idea! She knows how much she has to spend and can't go over it!
