The ‘Bill My Parents’ website takes online shopping to a younger age group. For those who love browsing through online stores but are too young for a credit card, this site may be the answer to all your shopping prayers.

After browsing online, teenagers can create a list of "must-haves" and have it sent off to their parents. The idea is to get items parents-approved and therefore purchased through the prepaid Mastercard option that is also offered by the ‘Bill My Parents’ website. According to the site, this would be a more secure way for moms and dads to monitor their child’s purchases.

Do you think the ‘Bill My Parents’ website is a good idea for parents? Or is it promoting consumerism for those too young to understand it?
