This isn’t that different from what I said

True, I’m saying don’t let him spend money on it, but we’ve seen over and over that once a person stops spending money on an MLM, the MLM will drop them. While it may be an important distinction, my thinking is by banning the spending and not the MLM, the kid will learn, and quite rapidly, that they want his money more than him. The connection is broken, but by the MLM and all his “dear friends” and not by his parents.
