Hey, you gotta spend money to spend fake money to make money. Or something like that.
That's how a lot of iPad games work: In order to get more virtual money in your game, you have to spend real money. And when your iTunes account is linked to your bank account, spending your hard-earned cash hand over fist is way too easy. Well, apparently kids were spending hundreds(!) of dollars of their parents' money without consent, and mom and dad are pissed. Not just at the kids, though. Parents are going after Apple.
