How do I link my child's account to mine?

I was trying to add a code for prepaid gold membership to my kids Xbox yesterday and couldn't work out what info they wanted so I ended up leaving it.

I decided to try again today and it seems that I created an account for myself! I've logged in and added the code, but I can't work out if our accounts are linked or not?  

Ideally I'd like to be able to add their accounts to mine so they have their own gamertags but I control purchases or membership subscriptions.  Is this even possible? I don't really like the idea of registering payment details to their account as it leaves me open to huge bills!

I am having the same problem. We need to add our child account to ours. My sons XBOX Gold ran out. I am trying to renew the membership. Keep trying to do so on his account, but it keeps on saying "pending".

His account isn't on mine when I sign in at all.

HOW DO WE ADD AN EXISTING CHILD ACCOUNT?

I can figure out all the rest once he's added.

I hear that Sony is far easier to do than this. XBOX has been a nightmare

Hi Armydoodrules,

please be aware that this thread is already pretty old. To ensure to best personal support in the forums it's best to create a new thread for your specific issue.

Please also include things like what you already tried.

For example did you try it via the 360 console, or also via xbox.com? Does it show any error messages other then pending and be sure to check the details at http://billing.microsoft.com to verify if all is correct.
