Hello TheLEGENDSMom,

Do you have parent controls on that account? They might be blocking something that away.

If that isn't the case, then please look at the Online Safety & Privacy Settings http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live/online-privacy-and-safety/online-safety

I hope this helps!

Set parental controls for Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE
Overview

The Xbox 360 console lets you customize and manage your family's access to games, movies and television content. The Xbox 360 parental controls can be used to control the console itself and access to Xbox LIVE. Parental controls allow you control things such as:

  • Which games can be played.
  • Which movies and TV shows can be watched.
  • How long each family member can use the console on a daily or weekly basis.

Whether or not someone can access Xbox LIVE. You can also change the online safety and privacy settings for your account or a managed dependent account.

  • Block or allow access to Internet Explorer for Xbox.
  • Determine who can see your profile.
  • For parents, determine if approval is required to accept or send friend requests.

The Zune Family Settings feature lets parents and caregivers customize settings to provide age-appropriate content and options. These family settings let you control:

  • How your child makes purchases.
  • Access to explicit content.

How to create a Zune Music + Software account for someone who is under the age of 18

First, you have to open a Microsoft Account (also known as a Windows Live ID) for the person under the age of 18, and then give permission to that account. Here’s how:

  1. From an open browser, go to Microsoft Account, and then click Sign up now on the bottom of the page.

After this Microsoft account is validated, the new account holder can create a Zune account by opening the Zune software, clicking Sign in (located in the upper-right corner of the page) and going through the account sign-in process.

Use the Family Timer to limit the amount of time that your family can use your console on a daily or weekly basis. Family members can see how much time remains by pressing the Guide button on the Xbox controller. When the time expires, the console shuts down and can't be used again until the Family Timer automatically resets the next day or week.
