Upgrade Password

How about the credit card holder (mom or dad) setting up an "upgrade password" when the game is purchased so that the kids playing the game have to at least ask for permission to upgrade? I'm assuming that there would be a clear indication of the charges to be incurred before agreeing to the charges.

Maybe that's more of a game delevopment idea rather than an Amazon idea, but you get my meaning.
