Prevent purchasing without entering password

Hello. I looked but couldn't find this - how can I set up my account so that it requires a password for any / all transactions? The reason I ask is because my son plays on my XBLive account and I let him download demos from the Arcade but I don't want him to accidentally purchase anything.

Hi Foleyx90:

Currently there is no way to have him go on Xbox live and play games and download free demos and then prevent him from doing certain purchases if his account is set up as an adult.  I don't know if you are aware but there is a Prepaid Code that you can buy at any retailer and redeem on his account.  That will let him go online and play games and download demos without makes purchases that you did not intend

Hope this Helps

You can't unfortunately, but the best thing to do is remove your credit card (might have to call into support 1-800-4MYXBOX) and your son will still be able to purchase the free demos :)
