An 11 year-old in Xingzheng, Henan province has taken his mother to court for refusing to give him a PC.
The schoolboy's mother promised him a computer if he got more than 94 per cent for his school work. He got 97 per cent: but his mother refused to fulfil her side of the bargain. Her excuse? Lack of money.
The boy then took his mother to court in an effort to make her honour the verbal agreement. The judge reconciled the pair at the hearing, The Star reports.
The Register fully supports the settlement of such grievances, and prays that children everywhere will see justice in the near future. ®
