Kids burn holes in budgets

I continue to hear about parents who are shocked at the size of their  phone bills.  Once tech-savvy kids use Smartphones and social networks, usage (and costs) go through the roof.

One major problem is “in-app purchases.”  This is when kids download free content, but then buy additional content.

Conversations about tech costs and online safety should happen before  a child uses  gadgets.
