We turned on profiles so that my wife, myself and my four year old daughter have our own profiles. Netflix doesn't make it easy to upload a custom image for your profile. You have to sync it with your Facebook acct and the image from FB gets imported automatically to your profile. Though you can't do this for a Kids profile. If you tell Netflix that this profile is a kids profile, they remove social linking capabilities cause (DUH) four year olds can't have a Facebook account to begin with!
There is no way to custom upload an image for your Kids profile pic. The problem then becomes what happened this morning. Wife is getting ready for the day, comes out to the living room to find our four year old daughter found a phone, launched Facebook, selected one of our profiles and began a healthy viewing of (likely) the one animated thing she saw in the grown-up profile list, Family Guy.
We know that if she was presented with the profile list, and saw something she instantly recognized (like a character she loves), she'd likely click it and then be presented with only family friendly stuff. But there's no way to do this with the current setup.
Here's how you do it anyway (and yes, it's lame that you have to do this, but hey, I didn't create Netflix.)
1. Create an email for your kid
2. Create a Facebook profile for your kid
3. Upload the image you want as the avatar in Facebook
4. Make sure your kid's profile in Netflix is NOT set to "Kids." This will allow you to access the social features in "Your Account"
5. Sync the Facebook account with your Kids profile. This should import your image
6. Now, click Manage profiles, and edit your Kids profile.
7. Turn on "Kids" mode.
The uploaded profile image should stick.
Done. Amazing you have to do all of this instead of simply uploading an image for the profile pic, but again, I didn't create Netflix. Hope this helps you.
