Legal rammifications and not wanting to spend hard earned money on some kid on the internet.

Why would anybody send gifts, to anybody whatever age? They would have to know the donors very well; become very close friends.
I don't imagine anybody would send a gift just because somebody asked for a gift. Why would they?

I am more concerned about a 16 year old asking people on the internet for gifts. Expand and extend the "dont take candy from strangers" principle you should have been taught as a young child. Very few people are going to gift you for no reason, and you need to be cautious of those who do. There is generally an ulterior motive.

Honestly, in the several years I've been on the net, I can only recall two times I sent anyone a gift. One was to someone I've known for 3 years and trust, and the other was a present for my boyfriend. Neither one of them were underage. :P

If a parent or guardian of a minor does not want said minor to learn, practice, or study magic and an unrelated adult gives them a random gift, say of a book on magic, the parent/guardian's rights are being infringed upon. As a minor, you have the rights that your parents say you have, you don't have many rights of your own (beyond abuse cases, etc). No, it is not abusive, mean, or nasty for your mommy or daddy to tell you no to the things you want. That's when mommy or daddy is showing they love you and actually care about what kind of person you grow up to be.

If they aren't aware of your practices, you don't need to be buying anything until you tell them and get approval or else you become 18 or get emanciapated. If you are unwilling to do any of these things, you don't really need anything you think you need.

I also won't spend any money on some random kid on the net that I don't know. It's my hard-earned cash, why do you need it?

I will also point out that it is a violation of the site rules for anyone or any age to come on this site asking for people to send them gifts. There's no difference between that and begging for money, which is also against the rules. Breaking the rules on this site will end up with the person no longer being able to post here.

I agree with many of the responses above. Having a wish list is different than asking others to send you something. Gifts are not ever asked for period. You are soliciting which is frowned upon on this site and if you persist you may become banned from the site. The reason for this is because it is rude and dangerous. Stranger danger is real. In all honesty you are presenting yourself as a young child who is leaving themselves open for others to take advantage of. I pray you learn some self protection lessons and gain actual work ethics.
