Quest 2 requires a Facebook account. You need to be at least 13 years old to use the Quest 2. Leaving a child with developing frontal lobes alone with a VR hmd is not just bad parenting, it's simply dangerous. You can find several videos on the internet of kids damaging themselves or their hmds by running into real world walls, falling over objects etc. I do let my 9 year old son use my hmds, but I'm always there, I don't even leave him alone for a minute. He does not need his own account. I decide what he plays - constantly.
Beyond that, the IPD of Quest 2 is not designed for children. A 5 year old child has an IPD of about 50 mm, Quest 2 does not go lower than 61 mm, why would anyone force this on a child for longer periods of time?
Also the 500+ grams of the hmd is not designed for small necks.
Zuckerberg already warned about the above - thus Quest 2 is not for kids.

@PappiAviator keep things polite please.
As to the age range of users, yeah, these headsets are designed for 13 years and over. Meta have said there are no plans to design a headset for younger people and that's probably a good thing.
Nothing stopping kids from using them and I've let younger relatives have a go under supervision but I wouldn't advocate them owning one. At the moment, the facebook account thing is one way to mitigate the risk of under 13's using the headset unsupervised and I'd stick with that in lieu of anything better being put in place.
