Summary of Parent and Child accounts
Within Village any user that is under the age of 18 is classified as a "Child" account and everyone else is an "Adult/Parent." Since it's based on birthdays, it's essential that everyone registers with the right DOB.
Only Parent accounts can link to Child accounts
To set up your family, your account must be setup as an adult/parent over 18 years old.
If you're linking to an existing kid account, they must have used their correct date of birth during registration.
Only Parent accounts have access to Insights & Controls
