How to get an App Store refund for kids' accidental in-app purchases

How to get an App Store refund for kids' accidental in-app purchases | Parenting ain't easy! | Scoop.it

In-app purchases have become a thorny issue for customers in Apple’s ecosystem. Earlier this year, Cupertino settled with the US Federal Trade Commission over incidents where minors made in-app purchases – in some cases exorbitant ones – without the knowledge of their parents.

 

But if you (or someone you know) has been bitten by one of these inadvertent purchases, how can you go about recouping your money? If visions of paperwork and annoying forms are swimming before your eyes, don’t sweat it: Apple’s made it pretty easy to put in your request without even leaving your computer.

You comfort them over a skinned knee in the playground, and coax them to sleep with a soothing lullaby. But being a nurturing mother is not just about emotional care – it pays dividends by determining the size of your child’s brain, scientists say.

Shocking: According to neurologists the sizeable difference between these two brains has one primary cause – the way were treated by their mothers

Both of these images are brain scans of a two three-year-old children, but the brain on the left is considerably larger, has fewer spots and less dark areas, compared to the one on the right.
