For example, V-Bucks are used in Fortnite as currency to purchase items.
The purpose of the research is not to alienate our children from the evolution of money but to help us as parents understand our own attitude towards money (whether relaxed, engagers, avoiders or troopers) so that we can educate our children about money.
This is not easy.
