    There used to be an option to "add another email" to iMessage; since installing iOS11, that option seems to have been removed.

    Full story:
    I'd like to add my child's hand-me-down iPhone's iMessage to my own device so that we will both receive all messages that get sent to their account. I currently have Family Sharing enabled, and they have their own iCloud account under mine. Previously, I could add their e-mail/phone number to my iMessage settings; then set my "you can be reached at" to have both my and their contact information. The each of our phones would "start new conversations from" the separate iCloud accounts.

    Is there some other way to monitor their messaging in iOS11? Thanks in advance!

    Hello there,

    It's a simple solution just go to https://appleid.apple.com/
    from there login using the icloud acount you want to use.

    Once logged in select edit on the account section of the page (just below the sign out icon) and you will find 'reachable at' and here you can add another email address to the account.

    Hope this solves the problem
