Managing a Family Account

I signed up my son for an Xbox Live ID on this gamertag using my Windows Live ID.  I recently upgraded to a Family Account to add my other children.

I'd like to keep my Windows Live ID login and control of the family plan account under my own gamertag, and let my son keep his gamertag with his own email address different than mine.

So; current gamertag "xyz" with email "dad @ whatever".

Want; current gamertag 'xyz" with email "kid @ whatever" (and keep all his current points/game settings/etc AND new gamertag "dad" with email "dad @ whatever" with "dad" having control of the family account/primary login to and windows liveID.

What steps do I need to take to do this online through my xbox live account login I'm using right now so I keep my current email address?

What you need to do is a WLID Change.

Changing xyz to new kid email, then sign up for an account for the new GT.

But then he would be the parent and you the child, and since the Family plan was already purchased you can't change that, b/c it is Linked to the GT and not the email.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
