Child in app purchases

Hi all

Apologies if this has been asked before (I'm sure it has).

I have had a playstion account for many years now. A couple of years ago I added my son onto the account and entered his correct age (currently 13). He is a sensible lad and I allow him to play most games. I like the way that he has to request to play certain games and I can allow it. However, he is unable to buy in app purchases, specifically the Call of duty battle pass and blackcell update. Surely if it asks if he can play the game in the first place, it could ask if I am happy for him to have the in game purchases.
Is there any work around? It won't allow me to change his age in the settings (which I know is probably a good thing) but it is just frustrating.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I just game here to ask the same question (but for MultiVersus Gleamium).

I noticed that you can guy most in-game currently as stand-alone purchases in the store (but the child account can't) there a way as the parent to purchase the in-game currency FOR your child?
