    Help with setting up account for son


    The main primary xbox account (inc live membership) is my personal email address. My son has the xbox no one else plays on this, please can someone advise me if I change the email address from mine to his does this mean that he would be able to amend the
    gametag with the account and I would be able to set this account up as a child account? or he would then be in control of the account?

    The main issues is I cannot set up a child account without him loosing all his saved games and progress so I was thinking that I might be able to change the email address from mine to his and just limit this account instead?

    I hope that this makes sense.

    :)

    You can not change an adult account to a child account. Deleting the accounts will lose all data and purchases. If you have a Microsoft email (@live.com @hotmail.com @outlook.com) you can not change email as this will delete the account completely.

    The only other thing I thought I could do was to delete both accounts and set them up again but I would be worried that all his information and games would be lost

    You can't change the account from an adult to a child account. You can change the primary email associated with the account though, Which would free up yours
