    Time limits in Microsoft Family

    Hello HalloSturmhorst,

    I recommend that you try the following steps to troubleshoot Family issues:

    1. Remove the child account from your Microsoft Family account and add it back.

    2. Go to your adult account on the Family page, and toggle off/on time set limits for your son account.
