The necessity of Parental Controls in iOS

The Telegraph:

He said: “I was so mad. I’m 32 years old, why would Apple think I would be spending thousands of pounds on buying dinosaurs and upgrading a game?
”Why didn’t they email me to check I knew these payments were being made? I got nothing from them. How much longer would it have gone on for?
”Faisall is only seven, he doesn’t understand the real value of money and what the payments in the game involved.”
He told the Crawley News today: “Apple have details of my account so it would have been clear that I don’t spend that type of money on iTunes.
”It should have been flagged up.”

This whole story reads as “man fails to keep track of what his child is doing, blames Apple for not forcing him to use Parental Controls.” With an added hint of “spent two hours on the phone yelling at tech support because he didn’t click the ‘dispute this order’ button he got in the emailed receipts.”
