Debit card for family member

Has anyone figured out a safe way for their family member to have a debit card that you control?

My son will do impulsive things with money so we really need something secure.

You can give him a credit card that is under your account, with his name on and put a max on it. I used to have a card for my daughter (,she was not ill) under my AMEX account with her name on, with a top of $200 when she was in college. You can set it lower.

Thank you. I need to do some research.
