</p> <h2>How Does BusyKid Work? ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ</h2> <p>
BusyKid is an app with features that will teach your children the value of saving, investing and sharing. It will also teach them about sensible spending. If you opt for the premium version of BusyKid, your child will receive a debit card. The service does give you a certain level of control over your childโ€™s spending. For instance, your child wonโ€™t be able to transfer money to their spend, share or spend card without your approval. However, once the money has been loaded onto the card, you wonโ€™t have any control over how the money is used.
</p> <h2>How Much Does BusyKid Cost? ๐Ÿ’ท</h2> <p>
BusyKid costs $19.99 a year. However, it will only cost $7.99 for each additional card you want to add. Becoming paid subscribers will also give you access to all app features. The current promotional price is $37.99 per year, or you can pay $3.99 per month however, the annual plan will give you a saving of 20%.

</p> <h2>The Busy Kid App ๐Ÿ“ฑ</h2> <p>
The BusyKid app comes complete with an exciting range of features for kids and their parents. It features a chore chart in which chores and allowances can be set in line with the age of each child. However, parents can change these if they feel their child is capable of more or less work. Kids can also invest in real stock in companies including Netflix, Apple and Disney. BusyKid has made a special arrangement with their partner Stockpile to ensure there are no fees for buying stocks and selling one costs just $.99.

Kids have been donating six-figure sums to charities via BusyKid. More and more charities are being added to the approved list all the time. The app also allows parents to pay bonuses for special achievements such as qualifications or high-quality work around the home. The app also provides a detailed history of all the transactions that have been carried out with the Spend Card. The Activity Feed lets parents see whatโ€™s occurring in real-time.

</p> <h2>Is BusyKid Safe & Secure? ๐Ÿ”’</h2> <p>

BusyKid does protect information with bank-grade security. As the card is issued by Stride Bank, funds have FDIC insurance. As it offers separate funding sources for parents who are no longer together, your ex-partner wonโ€™t be able to see your bank account details if you both want to use the app.

</p> <h2>Conclusion ๐Ÿ’ญ</h2> <p>
There are many reasons why BusyKid might be a good money management solution for families. It gives children the chance to spend money whilst encouraging them to save, invest, share and give to charity.

The app has generally received positive reviews online, although some parents say the process of adding, transferring and loading money to the card could be more straightforward. In any case, BusyKid is one of the most affordable services in its field and has proved highly beneficial for many American families.
