If the kid's just going to lose interest after a week, don't get it for him. Ever heard of discipline? What happened to parents who could put up with whining instead of caving in to the child? If the parent doesn't want to deal with it, don't get it. Simple as that.

@Crys: I definitely agree with you. Unfortunately a lot of people find it easier to cave than to stick up to the kid

And then, what happens when the child grows up a little more and starts to ask for things more expensive than a fish? At some point the parents will have to say no, and the explosion will be nastier than if they nipped it in the bud when the kid was four. Sorry, this is just something that I have to indirectly deal with... the stupid kids that are a result of bad parenting. And seriously, it can't be that hard to tell a little kid no. They throw a fit and beg a little bit and then they're done, a week max. It's their job to be a parent, not slack off.

Oh, and then what happens when the kid gets a job? Their coworkers will have to put up with them, and their boss will have to hear their self-entitled little temper tantrums when they can't take the day off or get a raise they never earned. Parents, this is your problem, not society's.

I'm not just talking about the fish kid, I'm talking about the parents who just give their kids whatever. Because then it all comes back to the people who know that they're not entitled to anything having to put up with them. Maybe it's just because I'm in high school, so I see it A LOT.
