Ds spent over $60

On the Xbox. Various purchases for roblox, call of duty, minecraft.

He's almost 11, and I'm so very disappointed in him. He *should* know better. I know $60 isn't much but it's the fact that he didn't ask me, just let me find out at the end of the month when I'm going through my statement- then freak out bc I thought maybe someone got ahold of my info. But no, it was for ds.

Obviously, he's not getting on the system. I'm keeping it bc that's how I watch Netflix lol... but idk what else. His birthday is next month and I've set aside almost $300 for it (planned on buying him a tablet), but idt he's ready for a tablet and again, I'm just so disappointed in him.

Wwyd?


It's not like I deny him stuff. I bought him a handful of stuff for the Xbox before school started, games included.

Why would you eve leave your credit card information where it's accesable to him?. Yes he messed up but I think this is just as equally on you.

Wait he paid from your credit card without you knowing? This happened to me once. I Knocked that shit right off and took my card off account.

I gave my info for one game he asked for but had no clue it was now stored in the system for him to use again.

It's on the account itself. Obviously I'm gonna have to figure out a different way to do it now (sometimes I'll buy things). But in 6 years, we've never had an issue like this before.

My son can spend that much too but he always asks first. He learned the hard way that even ifs it's $2, he better ask first lol. Oh and he pays me back either with his allowance or doing chores. In fact he usually just buys Xbox points and buys stuff that way.

$60 is a lot of money to just "assume" you can spend

Yeah a tablet would be a no right now. And I'd make him do chores to pay off the $60.

This is why they have parental controls and diff accounts....So this shit doesn't happen. Kids fuck up they make shitty choices even when they knows better.

That's what I'm gonna have to do. It's so stupid but I feel like I can't trust him.

I know I could buy the Microsoft points from the store, which is most likely what I'm gonna do, to use for myself. It's just so frustrating! Why didn't he even bother to just ask? Instead of buying 400 roblox points or whatever for over $5 each, I would've told him to buy a bigger pack for less money.
