I received an error message

My child cannot finish creating an account: Children are required to get their parent's approval to create an account and play the game. When your child signed up to play the game, we asked them to share your email address so we could contact you to provide consent. Before they can play, you need to create a Niantic Kids account so you can approve your child’s game and permission requests. Check your email for instructions on how to complete the process.
I don't see the Google, Facebook, or Apple login method: You will only see the Niantic Kids login method if you have selected a child's date of birth when first opening the app. Other login methods (Google, Facebook, etc.) are not available to children. If you have made a mistake, you will need to delete and redownload the app to re-enter your correct date of birth.
