Now when you add in the fact that your Credit Card is on file with iTunes and your child knows your iTunes password then this situation becomes a bit dangerous.

You see there is a 5 year old boy named Danny Kitchen who lives in England and he downloaded a free game called ‘Zombies vs Ninjas’ to the iPad after getting permission from his father.  Ok, so far so good, not so bad right??
