    If that was my family dd would not know the new password. Ds1 would have longer than 1 month of no ipad and would be doing chores to pay back some of the money. Ds2 would carry on as normal

    Maybe they felt it was the only 100% foolproof way of avoiding any further charges, because they aren't in a position to afford that happening again? Perhaps it wasn't so much of a punishment as an attempt to control the situation financially?

    Just trying to think outside the box... if it was just a punishment, then I agree, totally unfair.

    DS1 should be given the punishment... but I think why are they giving the 11yo a password where the acct is linked to a CC and why does the 8yo have unmonitored access to the ipad???? Sounds like the parents need to give themselves a punishment instead of DD and DS2!!!!!

    I do not understand why the youngest is being punished!? They had nothing to do with it! Poor kid....

    The DS who did the lying should definitely be punished. I would take the ipad from that child all together. DD would lose the 'responsibility' of knowing the password from here on too...

    But yeah, very very unfair on the youngest. I think the parents need to have a re-think about this punishment.

    I agree with this. Although if it were me DS1 would be banned from the iPad for a lot longer than 1 month! $4600!

    Definitely not fair to punish DD, maybe just a bit of a chat about it, but also not fair to make her responsible for being a gatekeeper of the password in the first place.

    We don't give our 13yo access to the iTunes password. Sheesh, I hate to think of the bills he could run up! He's always begging for Steam credit too. He gets a nominal amount every quarter but once it's gone, it's gone. Trying to get kids to think about what they purchase and the value of money...it's tough.

    Far out that's is just plan mean.

    Only the child who brought the purchases should be punished and the password needs to changed and only the parents show know it.

    Agree with the majority here.

    The child who lied to obtain the password should be the only one punished. A long ban from the ipad would suffice for him.

    Parents need to change the password and keep it to themselves.

    This recently happened to me but it was only $132. But I still freaked out. I contacted iTunes and they refunded it all and were very good about it.

    I think the punishment is unfair. The youngest child deserves no discipline, she played no part in it. The boy who deceitfully gained the password with intent to download knew what he was doing so his punishment is fair I'd give another punishment too. The older daughter doesn't deserve to be banned for a whole month, not fair for her she was not trying to do something she knew she was not supposed to do.

    My DD was banned from all apple technology for a week and has to pay me back the $132 by doing jobs around the house (even though apple refunded me I have not told her that. She needs to know bad behaviour begets consequences).
