First of all i would like to say that "you should be proud of your Son ! at least he is putting into practice of "saving and buying an
item that he really would like to own". That is a start. He must have a inner drive to SAVE SAVE SAVE to achieve the end result!
"A new Computer" upgrade. Thats half the battle to teach Young Children the money skill to buy things they would like and not waiting
for a Parent to work it out. Sounds like he is a lovely ,knows what he wants Young Teen and look at it this way ,this will start him off
when he gets older to buy larger items or saving for a deposit on a his first home. Maybe do some research of different banks
interest rates for long term deposits(booklets) he can look at and read for the future saving . He might just like that idea!!
love reading your post and no you are not too controlling ,you are just concern parent !
