There is a reason for age restriction on Videogames. I'm sure your probably aware of the content you're allowing your son to access, graphic violence, sex, horror, drug use etc, but that's one issue. If you want to let your son play online in an 18 rated game he will be mixing with people 18+ who can be quite toxic towards other people online.

 

I'm sure you know all this and I'm not trying to lecture you.

" 18+ who can be quite toxic towards other people online "

 

Actually, it is probably the one's under 18 that are more Toxic to be fair.

 

 

 

The language of the youngster in lobbies is pretty dismal.

You cannot change DOB on Accounts.

 

 

 

If you want him to play these Adult games, then you will have to make an Account with a False DOB.   It's also against Terms of Service, so if you do, bare in mind that the Account could be banned and that will include all the games that are purchased with it.   It will be all gone.

 

 

11 maybe a little too young for these games, just my opinion.  

 

You are the Parent, so the decisions are down to you.

Go to the Parent Account, then go to Settings, then go to Parental Controls, then go to Sub Account Management, click on your child's Sub Account, click on Parental Controls, then click, Allow, Allow, Off, (set money to whatever you want) click Confirm. Then go back to your child's sub account.
Go to Parental Controls on your child's Sub Account, put in your password, click on Games, switch your ratings to Allow.
They should be able to play any game online now.
Doing this worked for my child's sub account.

That is because those id***tsfrom psn decided to allow you to only play the games that are for your age and not the games that are allowed by parental control because they are s***t and want you to get your own account (when you get 18) so you won't be able to share games with your master account and you have to buy them by your own. I'm saying that because I bought Battlefront 2 and the f******* age restrictions didn't allowed me to play

same with me I used to use my dads account to play m games but for my 13th birthday I thought I could play it because it's Teen rated so I made my own account put in my dob set everything so I could play battlefront 2 and then I hop on sign in and it says I can't play because of age restrictions and I'm not making a new account because I bought the DLC under my account so it will be gone and I would have wasted my money. PlayStation please fix this issue

The Game has a rating of 16+ 

 

You are not saying how old he is..  so, there is little you can do until he reaches the required age.

 

 

Spoiler
You could break the Terms & Conditions and make a new Account for him to play with...  You would need to make a Master Account with a DOB of the required age rating to play.  You would also be giving Sony false information, so they would have the right to Ban the account if they found out.

Hi there, I am in the parent account but I don't see settings or parental controls;and I don't see "sub Account" anywhere.  We just got the new PS4 and I am playing LBP3 with my sons and we cant get online because my son is under age 16 and I cant see where to change the DOB.  Are your instructions for the PS4?

Thank you for all of your help

Thank you for this. NO WHERE in the settings online or on console does it say you need to restart to get the settings change to take effect. I was getting very frustrated by the game not honoring the parental control settings changes.
