Buying Badge for son, need a second email account?

I bought my ticket before. Now my son wants to go. I can't buy a ticket for him with my email account. Do we have to create another email account for him? Why can't we just use my email address? What am I missing?

We now have a way for parents to purchase badges for children with no email address. A parent or guardian will first need an account in our registration system. Once your account is active, go to the “Get a Badge” link in the left menu. Click “Select” next to the badge you want to purchase, and your name will appear below that badge type, along with anyone on your Friends List. If your child does not have an account because they have no email address, click “Someone else”, then click “Don’t Know”. Enter the child’s first and last name and click “Find”. Their name will be added to your list and a “dummy account” created for them in our registration system. You now have the ability to purchase a badge and event tickets for them.
REMINDER: This is for children who do not have an email address and do not require access to their account. The parent account will be the only way to purchase items for this child. If the child obtains an email address and wants access to their account, please contact [email protected], and we will help set them up with a proper Gen Con Account.

You can do that, but I'd personally create a seperate email that goes to your email, to keep track of it.
