Re: Back to School Survey

OK .... my kids are much, much younger (10, 8 & 6).  However, I noticed that they always perceived my debit card as a magical instrument, with an infinitie supply of spending power.  This concerned me, so I attempted to explain that the card was only usable if I had money in my bank account.  They didn't really "get it", so I purchase the electronic version of Monopoly.  Instead of paper money, each kid gets a debit card.  There is a banking center that adds/deducts funds when you swipe your card.  Several times, they spent all their funds on various properties and ran out of money.  I think they kind of "get it" now.
