The child's mother admits that there were no parental controls in place, but still believes the fault is with Apple.

Um, no, not Apple’s fault. PARENTS FAULT for letting child use mothers iPad with NO PARENTAL CONTROLS!!!!!!

Stories like this irks the heck out of me. A 6-year old kid found his or her way to the App Store and made numerous “in-app” purchases. I’m sorry, but that’s the parent’s fault. How long did the “child” have the iPad? Did the parent not monitor the child’s activities?

If I let a 6-year old hold my iPad, you had better believe I would be right there watching his or her every move, but that Just_Me_D...

Entitled parents blaming everyone else for their failure to pay attention to their children. And, of course, Apple is doomed! :rollseyes:
