And if you're a parent, Amazon requires that you certify that your teen's phone number or email address needed to link their accounts belongs to someone between the ages of 13 and 17. Teens can also be assigned pre-set spending limits per order as an alternative to having orders reviewed.

Amazon is rolling out a service that lets parents and teens share an Amazon account.

"As a parent of a teen, I know how they crave independence, but at the same time, that has to be balanced with the convenience and trust that parents need", Michael Carr, vice president of Amazon Households, said in a statement. Then again, if you'd rather spend that money on cheap fast food you can always cancel your monthly subscription and mooch off your parents' Prime account over summer break. This will give kids more freedom while still providing them with itemized notifications of orders.

A Household allows you to connect and share Amazon benefits with the whole family. Parents can set customized spending limits and approval requirements, and teens can send personalized notes like, "this is the book I need for class", Amazon said. Now Amazon is giving that first solo-buying experience a digital makeover. Despite it being not unreasonable, it's understandable that not every person can afford it. Students are typically among that category, but Amazon has announced new pricing for college kids.
