Remove child/teen account purchase restrictions from free purchases

My idea is to make purchases of free items unrestricted on This mainly affects accounts trying to redeem Games With Gold Xbox 360 games from the Xbox One or a Windows 10 PC. There's really no point in restricting the free purchases, as they don't cost anything and a child cant unknowingly make purchases on a parents credit card.

    Totally agree. And if possible Child account should be allow to use the allocated money from parent for purchasing.

    Yeah, I agree with this. The only thing is that there aren't many people that have this problem and are willing to come here and vote it up. The votes would probably also have to surpass something like 100,000 votes for Microsoft to even recognise this.
