teenagers who borrow money over internet without permission

I think you should have a word with your son about what he is doing... ie using your paypal account without asking you first... Then you should change you paypal password so that it is only you that can pay for things.....
I think like someone else has said here that his own bank account would be a good idea. Is he not working? Does he not have his own money? He needs to know that he can't just take money from you, it has to be earnt.
Good Luck and I hope you can both sort this out between you...

This would be a good opportunity for him to have his own bank account and open the discussion about income, outgoing cash and budgeting...my 18 year old step daughter was pretty much in the same boat. We didn't want to "cut her off" or make her feel bad for asking for money, so we helped her set her own bank account and we supply a monthly stipend for her expenses. She must keep her budget and it is her responsibility. We have a 14 year old at home and she spends alot of time away during dinner time with volleyball and basketball activity. Our agreement with her is she may spend up to $10 dollars for dinner with the team, but anything over $20 she must call and get approval BEFORE she uses her card. What a great opportunity to have great communication with your teenager...GOOD LUCK!!
