A fantastic product that allows you the opportunity to teach your child a wealth of financial information and security! Allows children to learn about money, saving and spending in a safe environment while allowing parents to monitor quietly out of sight. Fosters independence and financial responsibility!

Great product if you have a need for this type of service.
Takes awhile to familiarize yourself with but once you get the hang of it it is easy. I'm sure kids would love this type of monitored freedom.
