How do I change the parental email address associated with a child account?

Hi

My son has an account on my XBox, and the parental email address associated with it (e.g. to approve friend requests) is no longer being used. How can I change it?

Thanks

You can change the WLID of your Parent Account pretty easily actually. Just follow the steps in our sticky post and let me know if you have any issues. forums.xbox.com/.../19163.aspx

Hi

Thanks for your reply, sorry I have taken long to get back to you. Ok, so I went into my child's account, and have got to the point of "Change Windows Live ID". I wasn't too sure whether to proceed - if I put my email address in there as the new WLID, will that mean that it becomes the parental control one, or the child's account one? i.e. my child has their own WLID associated with the account, so I would assume that changing it would only change the child-WLID instead of the parental WLID. Man this is really difficult to explain!

To possibly make it clearer, my son's father is the current parental control WLID on our son's account. We have split up and he has moved out, so he no longer exists on our console. Would it have to be him that signs in with his gamertag, and then makes the change? I don't really want to bother him with all this, so if there is any way to do otherwise I would much appreciate it :)

Oh, you don't want to change the WLID of the parent account, you want to change the parent account altogether. That might be a little more difficult, as you'd have to log into the current parent account and select "Remove From Family". Then the child would be free to add to a different parent. Do you have anyway of using that account for a while to do this?

Same for me, I've had my account for 5 years now and my dad used some hotmail account that hasn't been used since. I'm 21 now there must be some way to remove parental control it's very frustrating.
