This is how it should look- can you show what you are seeing? And you are definitely using 1.9? Your wording suggests you are following 2.0 instructions
Hi Mary, yes, I am definitely using 1.9 and yes, it looks exactly as you posted. I looked at the instructions on this page: http://docs.moodle.org/19/en/Parent_role which says they are for 1.9. The instructions say:
"Access the child's profile page and click on the Roles tab i.e. assign the role in the user context , 'Profile settings for [username]' > 'Roles' >'Assign roles relative to this user' "
Do I just assign the parent as a parent role?
Its ok I figured it out! Was just having a duh moment. Did not realise I just had to assign the parent on that page but was looking for the text as written in the documentation.
