And the most tedious of all to fixes is going to be aging up your child’s account. Yes! Underage players are restricted from playing certain games on Roblox community. The age barrier for such restricted games is mostly 13 years. Therefore, your child should probably come back 3 years later to play this game from which he is constantly being kicked out because he is underage. If you think that something’s wrong with the data you provided to EA while setting up your Roblox account, you can contact the EA Helpdesk to correct the date of birth on the associated account (or open an entirely new account, if I were you). Keep these things handy before contacting the EA helpdesk:

  1. Verification paperwork where your child’s age is clearly mentioned along with his picture.
  2. Origin ID of your child’s account. This will make it easier for the EA officials to locate your account.
  3. The EA helpdesk will assign you a case number once you contact them with any query and make sure that you save it for future reference.
  4. EA officials will lookup your request thoroughly and go through the verification process and update the incorrect data stored on your child’s account. Once the age has been updated, your child should be able to play the games hosted on Roblox community without an issue.

Keep in mind that if you really don’t want to go through all of this tedious verification process, you should always be careful while setting the date of birth on your child’s account. Or if you have a child who’s underage but still wants to try out the age restricted contents, you can set him an account up with your credentials but that’s not ethical so you didn’t get this wonderful idea from our guide (just in case).
