Some Parents let their kids use their iPad or iPhone for playing games or for studying. iPad is a great companion when it comes to education. Some parents even give their kids iPad as a birthday gift.

Many parents gave the Apple ID with credit card inside that iPad, as a gift, so that their kids can download applications or games by themselves. But then, the parents started to complain about it.
