Big question for US cities: Is Amazon's HQ2 worth the price?

Amazon is now making it easier for the youngest shoppers in a family to purchase items from the world’s largest online marketplace. However, there are new parental control settings that will ensure that parents are in the loop and aren’t taken by surprise when their kids buy stuff off of Amazon. Amazon is now allowing teens between the ages of 13 and 17 to create their unique logins, linked to a household account. Teens can then use their unique accounts to place orders through the Amazon app. However, the orders won’t go through until they’ve been approved by the parents who run the household account. Parents will get a text or email notification with the information about the order, the notification will include an option to approve to decline the order request.If parents don’t want to micromanage, they can set pre-approved spending limits for the kids on their account. This will give their children more freedom while still providing them with itemized notifications of orders
