FAQ:

I don't have enough unique email addresses when registering my children. What should I do? 
No problem! Google has a simple workaround! Use any valid gmail address and add +insert name of child before @gmail.com. For example, Jane McCartney is the mother of Michael McCartney, age 10. Jane's real gmail is jane.mccartney@gmail.com. Jane registers her son, Michael, using the workaround email: jane.mccartney+michael@gmail.com. The system will recognize this email as a valid email address.
