    Sorry, absolutely zero sympathy here.

    Who's at fault here? The parents. They are the ones who set up the iPad, and obviously added a form of payment.

    And yes, I'm speaking as a parent who had a minor child with an iOS device.

    Monitoring a Childs activity is a parents responsibility, and not just iPad app payments. Parents should monitor everything in their child life. I'm with Moderator @Lee_Bo on this one.

    “Ultimately this is yet another example of a child outsmarting their parents because they didn't fully understand the technology at hand, or what it could be used for.”

    I’d be more embarrassed if I were the parents. They got outwitted.
