What's the best way to give him spending money? I can't find anything definitive on Visa/MC sites that says whether a prepaid card is commonly accepted, or whether it can be used to get $ from an ATM. Does anyone know if something like VisaBuxx can be used outside of the mainland?
ETA: thanks for your concern but he actually does know how bank accounts work and manages his money just fine. He does not have an income other than his allowance, which is small, and we live too far from a bank for him to just walk over there and withdraw cash. I was just looking for short-term solutions for one trip away from home...and thanks to everyone who contributed great ideas. :D
