How do I limit my Child's Spending on Xbox Live - Help Please

Can someone please give me instructions on how to restrict my child’s Xbox account from making purchases?

He already has an account, and I have a windows live ID but I do not play the Xbox. I need step by step instructions on how to limit what he can purchase. I have looked online for over an hour on how to do this, and I cannot find anywhere in the console to limit his buying activity.

I don’t want to remove the credit card off the account; I just don’t want him purchasing content.

I need step by step instructions please.

Thank you.

All three of these links will help you help your child have an enjoyable experience on XBL.

You have to remove your payment option from xbox live account using your internet browser not the console.  It is the only good option.
