Changing Account Type

I signed up for xbox live 4 years ago, when I was 15, and as such needed a parent account.  Well, the days of needed parent consent are long gone and I'm now 19, but xbox live is constantly asking for the parent account password.  Is there a way to change this so that I own the account?  Or am I doomed to be seen as a minor forever?

Just go in there and turn it off, save and exit.

Also you could go to live.xbox.com/.../Settings and at the top of the screen it gives you the option. Adult, Teen, Child, Custom. The first post I posted should fix the problem.

Actually you need to promote your account. On the console, go to 2nd window under My Xbox, press A. Go to 2nd Window again, Account Management, press A. Go the 3rd window, Your Information, and choose Promote Account.
