Kids and computer games: Watch your credit card bill


If you're a parent, that means you have children (my drum-tight logic is amazing, isn't it?), and if you have children, they just may be playing online computer games.

So I thought I'd offer my money tip of the day: check your bank account and see if you're paying monthly charges for these games. Last night, I was perusing our bank account online, as I often do, and I started grumbling about the amount of online games my wife had been buying for our kids. Only problem, as I soon discovered, is that my wife had no idea what I was talking about. For a few minutes, we found ourselves wondering if our seven-year-old daughter had figured out how to purchase online games.
