I don't care whether or not it is financially responsible or not. The parents are more than capable of figuring that out.
What they need to realize is that getting into a national tournament when you are ranked 200 is not a God given right. And they need to really be honest about the entitled thinking of "if my child just got more exposure to top players, he will be a top 50 player!!!".
