Blogger Mother of Teenagers Reviews VeeLoop

latest-post-image

Popular parenting and lifestyle blogger Mother of Teenagers recently trialled VeeLoop’s service with her teenage children. Here is an excerpt from her review:

“In a nutshell, it is a payment approval service, that quite literally provides a virtual loop (hence the name) between teens and their parents when they are shopping on line […]

I found [the process] extremely satisfying, as it enabled me to look at the list of goods my teens wanted to buy and decide individually which items I was happy for them to have, before saying yes or no and then going ahead to buy them.

More importantly I could do it in my own time without them coercing me to just do it, when I wasn’t really paying any due attention to the cumulative cost.”
