Forced to re-verify a child account - why?

This evening, my son's Microsoft account stopped working - xbox live, Windows 8.1 sign in, web sign in, etc.  After some annoying detective work, I finally figured out that I had to sign in with my account and verify that his account was authorized.  Why the sudden change?  He's been using his child account with my approval for over a year.  Do child accounts require re-verification after some set length of time?  Or did his verification get canceled when I recently changed the password on my own MS account?

The reason why you had to re-verify the child account is due to recent security/policy update in the system.
