Promoting my account to adult.

  • Level   1

Okay, so. I've had my xbox 360 since I was 17, and I am 22 now. I deleted the parent account thinking that would solve my problem, then I read a bit more and I found out how to do it. But I don't have a parent account that is needed. How can I fix this?
