How do I associate my child's XBOX Live account to my Live account

  • Level   1

My son and I each have XBox Live accounts. I would like to set some parental controls. How do I associate his account as a child account to mine so I can set controls in Family Settings?

Thanks.

  • Hey there TalipedJewel!  When your son first registered an account, it should have requested for a Parental account if he entered in the correct DOB and he is a minor in his region.  If you would like to set permissions on his account, you would sign in to his account and pull up the Xbox Guide>Settings>Family Settings and you can then require a passcode there and set some permissions.  Thanks! :)
