  1. Why can I not turn off parental controls for my son's account?


    A few months ago linked up my son's account to mine and set up parental controls. We decided to remove it again, but even after removing his account the restrictions remained. I have tried several approaches after Googling how to resolve it, including unticking the restrictions before removing his account, but nothing seems to work. For instance, when he tries to download a piece of software it will ask for my password but even when entering my password it doesn't allow him to download the software. He also can't use Chrome which is really annoying.


    It seems like there is a bug in the system and from doing a bit of Googling it looks like I'm not the only one with this problem.


    What do I do?

    :)

    My son's parental control doesn't work

    Hello, I set up my son's account with a limit of 2 hours per day. The parental control worked for some time and than I noticed that it stopped working. I deleted and re-added his account. It worked for several days and than stopped again. Any suggestions?
    Thanks
