    Two adults (parent control) and one child - possible?


    My son's child xbox account was set up with my partner's email as the approver for games, purchases etc. Can we add my account so that I too can approve his games, purchases etc?

    I guess the answer is 'yes', as imagine a scenario with separated parents and a child that uses two xbox's in two homes.

    Thanks to suggest how to add a second adult can receive the requests from the child account and make approvals.

    :)

    Have you got a family account setup at all, or parental controls?

    That may be the issue.

    Try asking your parent/guardian to turn off their parental controls, and reply if it does not help.

    If your parent/guardian does not know how to turn parental controls off, tell them to promote the Xbox Live account to an adult one, instead of a child one. You may have a child account, instead of a full adult account.

    Hi, is your account under parental controls ?

    If that's the case then the parental account will need to sign in and change any restrictions on your account.

    If that's not the case and your account is an adult account and you also have a child account signed in that has content restrictions set then those restrictions will also affect the adult account until the child account signs out.

    Has anyone gotten banned on Xbox for a pirated game on pc?

    The adult parental account can control the use of the child account and that is explained in the rules of the service.

    I believe every account that is not set to "Child" can control the account.

    Adding to this, simply put any adult account added to the family account, can control a child account. You will just need the Adult already on the account, to add you. This is explained in the link above.
