When I go on my xbox 360 and try signing in to xbox live it tells me to first accept the new terms of use, when I click to view the new terms of use it comes up saying your parent must accept this before...

Sorry about the divorce. I do not have any living parents so you may be the lucky one. It sounds like the system may be recognising that you are trying to connect using your parents account. Xbox is a subscriber account I believe. I have PS3 which is a free account. But I understand that a subscriber account has a few more security factors as it involves money. So if they suspect that a person is trying to use the account but is not the account holder then they may block access regaudless of circustances. If you have right of access to the use of the Xbox then you could consider staring your own account. Then you can authorise any changes your self with out the need for verification from the account holder as you are then the account holder. I could use my account on any PS3 but any one can not use my account. It is just the account parts which are locked to the account holder. So if he/she does not allow then access is not allowed. If you had your own account you could open it and use it (I believe) on any Xbox as it is the account which is locked and not the Xbox. So trying to access the On-line part requires signing in as it is only accessible to the account holder or those he allows. My PS3 has an option to add more users to my account. It may be so with the Xbox. If your parent just does not want you using his account then that account is not available to you. Sorry but things like that sometimes happens to some people. I do not know your age and your parent may be concerned about allowing access whilst he is not there. I am older than eighteen so I do not need my parents permission to have my own account. It may be that you may have your own account at sixteen or less. But I beieve the Xbox requires a yearly payment. I do not know if I have been of help. But I hope I have.

I have parental control enabled for my sons PS3 and now he can't go online and play, i can't find an option to allow him to go online, help?

Well the only option to do is to remove the parental control. I hate saying that because I know you are trying to be good parents and keep and eye on what he can do or see. The reason the parental control would need to come off is the interaction with other people, No way to control what they say however you can report them and mute their microphones however you can not control what is coming out of their mouths. Go back in your PS3 menu and remove the Parental control. Sorry but as I know this is the only decision.

When i want to play online call of duty modern warfare 2 it has parental control restriction me and my dad have been trying to fix it for weeks how do you do it ?

I had the same problem with my son.
It turns out (as per Playstation Network) that the age that you input when your Dad set up your account is irreversable.
The only way around this is for your Dad to create a new sub account, with a relevant age for you to use with age restricted games.
My son can now play COD with my supervision.
Hope this helps
