No. Theyre not responsible enough for that. Well, MOST aren't. Credit cards are "free money" to them, until the bill comes of course.

Yes, with a limit so I can track her spending.

Hell no! As others have said, they just aren't mature enough. I would take it as far as saying I think it should be against the law to issue credit cards to anyone under 21 because I see it as predatory lending!

Depends on how responsible they are and I would put a limit on it. My sister had one at 16 years old and she only uses it for gas if she had to and always pays it ( she is 18 now)
