Why do you let your kids play with your iPad/iPhones/iPods??? I am sorry, but this only probes how stupid some parents are. The kids did not only have access to the iDevice, but they know the password for the Apple Store. Why did the parents give the kids the password???
but then i'm in my mid Sixties, grew up in a time of having and expecting other people to have like scruples, unlike now where it seems it is a forgotten charm.
People ask why give out passwords, well confronted with a gaggle of kids asking to download free apps, it becomes very difficult to keep being interrupted while trying to do housework, run a business etc. Even for a free app it is the same password as for a bought app or in game content, to me that is far more stupid, yet so easy to remedy.
In the UK Trading Standards are looking to stamp down on these purchases, taking the tack if not proved authorised by the card owner, child purchases are not deemed binding. Not sure how they will enforce this, but might mean the Software houses will have to change their ways,
to me that is simple to achieve, a good example is PayPal payments can be authorised by a text code to your phone, but requiring your code.
I understand people saying 'would you give your credit card to a child?' but i ask would you be happy or feel justified to to accept a small, let alone such a large payment from a child simply for game content?
Tisk, tisk.... These tablets are not made for children nor are they instant babysitters. #learningthehardway

do you have a smart Tv, do you stop children using iplayer, recording 'their programs" on Sky+ etc for which they go to bed to early to see, so are broadcast after the water shed?
Don't have twin pillow monitors for them to watch DVDs on those 'are we there yet" journeys?
