    Hi
    Izzy1412,

    Thank you for the response.

    We truly understand the urgency here. Here in the forums, we're unable to call you. We highly suggest you Contact
    Support
    for further assistance.

    What we can do here is provide the online support pages that helps you out with the steps needed to resolve issues and provide insight on different types
    of accounts.

    Managing parental consent will
    provide you information how a parent and child accounts are created.

    If you're being asked for parental consent, the birthdate on your account indicates that you're underage. You mentioned you are 17, which means you're underage and the
    account is considered a child type. To resolve this, please have the parent account assigned to your account provide consent. Only the parent account can do this.

    This is in compliance with regulations that require parental consent:

    • Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) – United States
    • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – European Union
    • Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) – South Korea

  4. how to edit personal information for a child account through a parent account

    How do i change the DOB (date of birth/birthdate) for a child account through the parent account? How do you do Option 3?

    Hi,

    If the birth date on a Microsoft account says that it belongs to a child, there are different steps to take in regions such as the United States of America and the Republic of Korea, and other regions that regulate what children can do online. Here is what
    to do when you are a parent trying to change your child's birth date:

    • Using the parent's Microsoft account, sign in to your
      Family
      page on the Microsoft account website.
    • Select Manage my child's profile info.
    • For the child’s account that you want to change, select Edit this child's personal info and then follow the instructions.

    For additional help, you may find the instructions to this question by following the links below:


    Regards.
