Yes Apple charges and charges a lot, however there are many 3rd party repairers who do an excellent job and for far less than Apple charges.
I just had my son's iPhone 4 (designed to fail) fixed for less than half of what Apple wanted and it looks as good as new. My son has got a better protector for the phone and I hope this time will take better care of it.
I suggest you do the leg work, find a reasonable repairer, get Apple to also quote and then show both to your Dad. He will then probably think the cost reasonable compared with the alternative.

Apple will exchange your iPod for a refurbished one for $199 for a 64 GB one and $99 for the others. They do not fix yours.
A third-party place like the following maybe less. Google for more.
