Earlier, a parent of an 11-year-old girl shared their ordeal on Reddit. after their daughter demanded an iPhone. The parent wrote, "I have an 11-year-old daughter. We gave her a phone two years ago. It was an old iPhone 8 of mine. She mainly uses it for calling and texting with friends and social media. Recently she's been wanting a new phone because her phone was old and all her friends have new phones. So, I thought the iPhone 13 would be a good option as it's 600 dollars, has a good camera/battery life, and it looks the same as every other iPhone. But she specifically wanted the iPhone 15 Pro Max because, apparently 'it plays console-level games and has a 120hz display." (Also Read: Scolded by father for buying I-Phone, 17-year-old ends life)

He further added, "My daughter is a gamer and has always complained about her phone not being able to game properly as it's old.

I did already tell her she would be getting an iphone 13 but she's adamant on the iphone 15 pro max which costs double the cost. Honestly, I think it's a waste of money, so I said no. My daughter then got mad at me and said I was ruining her life, and she told me that her best friend has a 15 Pro Max."
