So I did this a couple of months ago for G. I opened up a PayPal Student account for him. What is this you say? It is a debit card that you control. The debit card is in G's name and attached to my PP account. If he needs money or to give him allowance, I can just log on really quick and deposit some cash onto his card. We even use it when I need him to run to the store and get milk (when I don't have cash). If you open up a Student Account, PP will put $10 on the card for your teen.
