I would like them to add the removal of child accounts.It sucked when people that are adults had to be child accounts.Also the fact that only the primary account holder can buy microsoft points from the system itself.

Xbox LIVE determines whether an account is a child account or an adult account based on the age of the account owner. Account owners who are younger than 18 are given child accounts in the United States. The legal adult age varies by country and region (for example, the adult age in Korea is 20).

Child accounts are tied to an adult's Windows Live ID. The adult account can control Family Settings and restrict some features of Xbox LIVE.

After you reach the age of adulthood (which varies by country and region), you can promote a child account to an adult account. This promotion removes the Family Settings and Xbox LIVE restrictions.

To promote a child account to an adult account
  1. Sign in to Xbox LIVE by using the account that you want to change.
  2. Go to My Xbox and then select your profile.
  3. Select Manage Account.
  4. Select Promote Child Account.

    Note This option is available only if the date of birth for the account indicates that you have reached the age of adulthood (18 in the United Kingdom). The legal adult age varies by country and region. The age of an account owner is calculated by using the date of birth provided when the account was created. This date cannot be changed. If you entered an incorrect date of birth when you created the account, your only option is to create a new account using the correct date of birth.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to promote the account.

You can buy point cards and have the other accounts use the codes. I do it that way because its fast and less trouble.

To Zen, When you promote them to an Adult It takes them out of the family gold plan.The problem with it is when you add adults to it their profile is changed into a child account.
