First off. Did you forget that your the parent. Take it away.

You could get him banned but that would be only for a day or two. But that wont work if u dont have a live account.

The best solution is to grow some and take it away.

My Xbox is locked can u help please?


In order to disable the parental lock on your Xbox console you need to follow the instructions on this Xbox support site.

How to reset forgotten pass code for parental controls on Xbox 360


Basically, in order to prevent smart kids from finding a default reset code and disabling the parental controls without their parent's knowing, each Xbox console has an unique reset code that is calculated from the console's serial number.
So if you are unable to remember your secret question to reset the console yourself, you will have to contact the official Xbox support here:

https://support.xbox.com/contact-us

When you are talking with a support agent, you need to confirm, that you are an adult, and then give them the console serial number.
They will then walk you through the process of unlocking your console.

I have a child account for my xbox live account and my parents and I would like to use Netflix. I have already tried signing up for it directly from my Xbox 360 and it said I couldn't due to the child...


You will need to upgrade your child account to an adult account to be able to use Netflix. Unfortunately this is not possible until the child reaches the legal age of 18 (US).

Once a child account is created it is managed from the date of birth indicated when applying for the account.

Netflix can't be bypassed to work on an Xbox 360 on a child account.

The only solution to view Netflix on the Xbox 360 is to have an adult account created and access via that account.

Recommend that you just stream using your computer. Plenty of options out there to get your PC hooked up to your TV if you need to view in a larger scale.

How do i turn off parental settings, or even better change my account to an adult one on xbox 360?


Hello,

If you did not create a Live account that is not over 18 years old, it is unfortunately impossible to COMPLETELY remove the parental controls on the Xbox, however, it is possible to almost completely turn them off. If you have access to the 'parent' account of the child's account on the Xbox 360 and you have your own Xbox Live Gamertag, you can login using your Windows Live account on Xbox.com and change parental control settings.

If the "Child" account has reached the age of 18, then you need to sign into the "Parent" account and follow these steps to convert the account to an "Adult" account:


  • Go to My Xbox, and open your profile.
  • Select Manage Account.
  • Select Promote Child Account.
  • Follow the required steps.

If the "Child" account is NOT atleast 18 years old then this is how to modify the Parental Control settings (Note: You can NOT completely disable Parental Controls, games that have ratings above the neccesary age can NOT be downloaded on the "Child"account):



  • Sign in using the "Child" account's Live email address and password.
  • Click on the gamertag in the upper right hand corner of the site.
  • Click the Manage Profile button.
  • Under the Gamer Profile heading, choose "Family Settings".
  • It will now ask to sign in as the "Parent" account.
  • After signing in, you can change the Parental Control limitations.
  • When done, click the save button at the bottom of the page.
(Information taken from following site)

Hope it helped.

Password on famliy setting for xbox live preowed console


From the XBox website:


Managing Xbox LIVE Activity
Xbox LIVE Controls come into play only when you take Xbox 360 online, and they're linked to a child's profile and gamertag. When an Xbox LIVE account is created, the service asks for the member’s age to determine whether to apply Family Settings to that account.
Parents are also required to create or use an existing Windows Live ID. The Windows Live ID is associated with the child’s Xbox LIVE account and protects the settings from being changed later by the child. To change a child’s settings, first select the child’s account name and connect to Xbox LIVE. Once signed in, enter your Windows Live ID password to unlock the settings.
To see these controls, go to My Xbox, open System Settings, then selectFamily Settings, Xbox LIVE Controls.

I want to get xbox live on the 360 without my mom nowing


Hi,

No help will be given to do this, here is why and this is taken from Xbox.com.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Family Settings and Parental Consent
If you have children that use the Service, you can choose to set up child accounts during account creation using the Family Settings features. Children's usage information, such as games played, download history, and friends list, may be made available to the owner of the parent account associated with the child. Owners of the associated parent accounts can use the default settings for child accounts or can customize the level of restrictions for each child account.
Children under the age of 13 cannot create an account for the Service without parental consent. Account creation, which enables the use of the Service and certain Xbox.com features, will require the owner of the associated parent account to consent to the collection of information about the child. This will involve the collection and verification of a credit card number in order to help determine that the owner of that parent account is an adult. Under Family Settings in the Xbox LIVE Dashboard or via Xbox.com for the personal computer, parents can change or revoke the consent choices previously made, and review, edit or request the deletion of their children's personal information. We will not knowingly ask children under the age of 13 to provide more information than is reasonably necessary to provide our services. If we change this privacy statement in a way that expands the collection, use or disclosure of a child's personal information for which the parent has previously consented, the parent will be notified and we will obtain the parent's additional consent prior to implementing the change with respect to that child.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks and please don't ask again.
