    My son just got a new ipad. I have set him up as a family member and have left the "ask to buy" function on. Where do I see the requests that get sent to me if he wants to buy something. A message pops up briefly on my screen saying that he is requesting to buy something but if I don't click on it straight away it just disappears.

    I can't find it there either. What should I add to notification list to see these requests?

    If you swipe down from the home screen it will appear along with all the other notifications from today and yesterday. You can also do it in the Notification Center. Put your thumb at the very top of the screen and drag down.

    There shouldn't be anything to add to Notification Center and there's no way, that I'm aware of, to customize notification settings for Family Sharing.
    If you continue to experience issues reset both devices by holding the power button and home button down simultaneously until you see the Apple boot logo. Then try sending a purchase request through again.

    I'm not sure if that's device-dependent or not but my 6s Plus goes back seven days.

    Actually I've had this issue as well. My kids send me requests all the time and if I don't get to them right away, they're not in my Notification Center. I just ask them to resend. It's bothersome but honestly, I haven't had time to chase it down.

    That occasionally happens to be too now that I think about it. Like you said, I have them send another request.
    You can also just approve the purchase directly from your child's device but that requires typing in your Apple ID and password. Not nearly as convenient as using Touch ID on your own device.

    The kids won't let me forget so even if the request disappears, they don't!
