Good for you. A lot of parents are complicit in letting their kids lie about their age so they can have access to services.

I actively discourage my kids from participating in any of the backend services for games like Game Center, etc. No one under 13 should be registering for anything IMHO. My 13-year-old still does not have a Facebook account and I think it the better for it.

Except they need the birth date to figure out which rules apply, even if they're not allowed to use it for any other purpose.

Too bad in a way. My Wii wishes me a happy birthday.

As a parent, I can't imagine many apps that would inspire me to share my child's actual birth date.
