> How do you prove that it's the kids parent thats giving this permission and not a random adult the kid asked to pretend being his parent?

In the same way they "know" the kid is 13 because he happened to select that from a pop-up menu somewhere.

That is to say, why should that proof require rigor that doesn't exist in the original html form that got him into this mess in the first place?

So if I fat-finger my birthday when setting up google+ I'm going to have my gmail shut down until I can somehow prove to them I just messed up?
