Well I spoke to the boy at school today and asked him what he was thinking. He said he knows he shouldn't have tricked his sister but he really wanted to get to the next level. He also said that he kinda sorta didn't really understand that it was real money. He's a sweet kid so I believe him. He's totally learnt his lesson, though, that's for sure!

Fair or Unfair?
Also, @Sonja, OT but it's my thread and I'm ok with it, seeing as how you're a lawyer lady, it's always struck me that digital purchases are like the only realm where you don't have huge grounds for 'return', without a big battle. You certainly can't return something you don't like, or, say, a game that isn't what you thought it was going by the description. You often can't try before you buy. Is that part of what the class action is about?

I haven't read all of the responses, but I would have punished myself because I outsourced my parenting to an 11 year old.

Don't fret, all is well :-)
I have to admit I'm a little taken aback by some of the responses regarding their actual parenting. Not offended, just...it wasn't an aspect I'd thought about, really. Lots of food for thought here.

Sounds like the parents are so upset, and I understand that. Is it really dramatically and horribly unfair to get rid of an iPad? Really? We have one, and I have to say - it is one of the worst things ever to happen to my kids. They have no interest in doing anything else, they don't want to go outside and play - I pretty much have to force them out by pushing them out the door. Haha.
So I'm a bit Meh - all kids lose the iPad, big deal. Kids spend far too much time and get far too involved in computers/apps and social media these days.

The class action is also (so far as I understand it - it's US law) about disclosure of how in app purchases operate and that when you buy some games you don't even know there are in app purchases. It's based on the consumer'a contract with apple when it buys these games.
And I think the general thrust of it is it's just plain sneaky and as the pp said impacts on how the game can be played.
You can adjust your settings so it asks for a credit card every time you buy something.
There is a thought the law suit will bring about an end to these types of purchases all together.
