Q. Recently we had an issue with Apple/iTunes. My 11-year-old son managed to rack up hundreds of dollars in charges on a game called Dragonvale. He was buying virtual gems, which then helped him advance in the game. The problem I have with this game and Apple is that the game is meant for younger children, say 12 and under, and Apple knows this. Yet they charge big bucks for kids to buy these virtual gems. It seems as though my son is not the only kid who has manag
ed to rack up hundreds of dollars on this game. We feel as though Apple is taking advantage of children and their innocence knowing that it’s children who play the game.
