Question - Childs account and MS Points

Tried to download the Halo Map Packs for my boy (on his account) but couldn't.  Is it because it is a child account?   Thx

How old is he?  If is age is accurate on his Windows Live ID then most likely "yes", this is preventing you from downloading it on his account.

If you think it is approapriate for him to play then you are probably better off downloading it on your account.

Buy a card at the store, set his permissions to download content. Otherwise the points go to you, the account holder. You can then give your son an allowance. He still can't use the points without your permission though. This involves verification. Just get a card.

Or if on the same Xbox, download for you, he can still play it. If a different xbox, log into your account on his xbox and download it. Just remember you can only transfer content licensing  to an xbox once a year. Shouldn't be an issue if you never want it on your xbox.
