    Unable to add son to xbox one

    You don't have to.

    The problem is if you used the 360 to set up your sons account it has been done with no region which defaults to US and under COPPA

    However, follow these steps

    Go to outlook.com (or your own email server/host if you have your own domain but outlook is easier)
    Sign up for an email address
    Sign into accounts.live.com
    Set up account details there including region!!! Tbh we set my son up as older.
    Now, go to a 360 where his account exists, and it was under profile or account (my hubby done this) ther is an option to change the account the gamer tag is tied to
    Enter the account you set up at the start
    Sign you son into XBOX 360 with the new account password
    You will then be asked to sign in as an adult to allow it - without COPPA!!!!! This is the magic
    Give it an hour, then add the account to the XBONE!!

    No help from Xbox live except for them getting hold of the wrong end of the stick, not understanding and arbitrarily closing tickets except for a statement about his account having no region. Hubby worked it out all by himself along with a lot of cursing MS - and he is a freelance MS Consultant, used to work for Microsoft and still has contacts there. The fact that xbox live support can't answer this is a joke and that it can't be done on the One is also farcical.

    I hope this helps you to resolve your problem

    Changing my Live account over to my kid

    Hi

    I have a an xbox live account that I set up after getting a Gold 12 month membership...I should have set it up in my son's name, but I am a complete newbie at this and really have no clue.

    Can I switch his gamer name to the account so that he can be signed in and play with others via internet...He doesn't like my gamer name of TurquioseDaisy6...

    Newbie to xbox 360 live - setting up my son's account

    This is a question I can not answer completely, because of everything happening with
    Microsoft removing the family packs, but I can attempt to help.

    --

    If you are using two X360's: Install on his Xbox as well, so he will be able to install games above his legal rating, like Call of Duty, if he plays them. He will need your permission, of course (it asks for you to install it because of
    his age). You don't need to do this if you don't plan on him playing those games, or if you will be using CDs to play, this is only if you are using the Xbox Marketplace.

    If you are using one X360: Install both profiles on that Console (or just his if you don't plan on playing, or if it falls under what I said above). When signing him up for this service, if you entered his real age, you should have been
    prompted for a parent/guardian account as well. Either way, this post should help.

    --

    I am not sure how much help this post is going to be, but the linked post is part of the official support page (by
    real Xbox staff) so it is probably correct..

    PS- If you do not plan on playing yourself, I do not believe you need to pay for your account, just his, but I may be wrong (still not completely sure)

    Good luck getting your son set up on Xbox Live!

    FIFA 14 Gamer talked son into trading players and went offline

    Your son will not get those players back i'm afraid.

    You may want to look into setting up some parental settings on your sons account

    It may not stop this happening again but will make it a bit safer for your son online.

    New Xbox Live account required parent Microsoft account and now child cannot access the new Live account.

    We have never had Live or a Microsoft account. My son has an avatar on the Xbox 360. So when I was required to go set up a Microsoft parent account to access "Live" I did that and redeemed the code assuming that is what they just instructed me to do! I am
    so confused. Now that we did what they said and set up the parent account, how does the child access it?

    Can't accept friend request or add friend on children's account

    My son said he logged on and went to My Account, then Security Family and Forums, and Xbox 360 settings, but Xbox won't let him to change the settings. Xbox said like this:"You want to change your privacy and online safety settings, but you’re unable to
    make the changes."

    Then i tried to log on with my account (Parental Account). Then i went to My Account, Security Family and Forums, Xbox 360 Settings for my son's account, and i have changed his Xbox 360 settings, then i clicked on "Save" button. But when i check his Xbox
    360 Settings, the settings i made was gone, and the settings turned back just like before i change. I tried 5 times but it still the same. And my son still can't accept any friend request.
