Can I allow my Kids access to my Xbox live account but restrict purchases

Folks,

Here is what I would like to do.  I would like to allow my kids access to my Xbox live account so they can use Netflix but want to make sure that they can't buy anything (i.e. games/subscriptions etc).

Each of my kids has their own profile on the xbox.  My profile signs in to XBox live without requiring a password to be entered.

I would like them to be able to sign in to their profiles which would allow them access to XBox live through my account but restrict them from making purchase

However I am not sure how they do this - or whether it is possible.

I've looked through a lot of posts and can't seem to work out what I should be doing - or if it is even possible,

Cheers,

Malcolm.

The easiest way to block purchases is just to make sure you don't add a payment method to their account. There's no way to password protect just purchasing.
