    ...why would you add a password for Kid's Corner? I believe that would defeat the purpose of having a Kid's Corner.

    With Kid's Corner, your main phone will have a four-digit pin which would make a "Kid" unable to access the contents of your phone, except those which you put in the Kid's Corner. One of the purposes is to prevent children from messing around the settings or accounts in the phone. In Kid's Corner, nothing is to be protected - otherwise they shouldn't be placed in the Kid's Corner after all.

    Am I missing something?

    Anyway, you can't add a password to Kid's Corner. This is only possible for the lock screen of your phone.

    It looks like you've missed a revision or two. Now kids corner cannot be used without master password.

    Id say that noone at MS has WP8 phone or those that do have it, have no children to understand how stupid idea is to have passworded entry into kids corner.

    It can. You don't need to have a password on your lock screen.
