Remove your credit card from the account. Use Microsoft point cards and xbox live gold subscription cards.

[/quote]Ideally, that would be the best solution, but it is currently impractical.  You can not buy a Family pack on a pre-paid card.  Until you can, you need to have a payment method on the account itself.

The Family Gold pack would be the best option. You can distribute MS points between accounts and lock your kids account's from buying points.

You can also put a pass code on your account, so that no-one else can get access to it.

Same here. I have parental controls set but can't block purchases since we have a single Gold account. (mine / parent). Apparently we need to purchase the $99 Family Pack or additional individual Gold accounts @ $60 each for the children --  then we can set parental controls on the children's accounts, which includes blocking purchases. Somewhere in the fine print, Microsoft tells us that we can't "share" our account. Other games have either chastised me for sharing the account, or strongly encouraged me to get the Family Pack. I'm not made of money, so for now I've just blocked my account's access to Xbox Live...

Please take note of the last post date. Instead of Frankensteining an old thread, especially a year old one, create a new one with your current issue.
