Sorry meant to say 2 consoles, so in other words one of your sons can get the shared games whilst the other cannot as you cant have more than one console set as home xbox
I have the same problem have 3 Xbox ones mine and one each for the kids, I remember asking the same question on here also. you cannot game share with 3 Xbox ones unfortunately. what i did was set up game sharing for the kids and I game share with my nephew who likes the same games has my kids so it's a win win for us.
I spoke to a Microsoft rep online yesterday. according to her it was possible. but to be honest she wasn't that much help.. she mentioned about logging into each console with my gamer tag and setting them to home console... I have no idea..
can anyone step by step guide me on how to setup game sharing please. Sorry for being a pest. much appreciated

Set your console as your sons home box and set your sons console as your home box.

It should possible, as long as you dont want to play at the same time as one of them.
Does one play on the console more than the other? If so, log into your account on their Xbox and set it as your home console. Then they can play the games you own any time, after theyre downloaded.
The other console, you could put your account on there but, dont set it as your home console (as you can only have one console as your home console). Then your son, can sign into your account, then his account and play the games using his account but, because you're signed in, he should be able to still play the games. But then, if you logged in on your account/xbox, it would sign you out of his console and probably cause issues with the game playing.
Detailed guide below:

Your best bet is to share between your Xbox & Child A (Child A can have thier own gamer tag), but Child B uses his Xbox using your gamer tag.

That will allow all games purchased to be on 3 Xbox's. The only restriction with this is that you & Child B cannot play at the same time.
Guys thanks so much think I got it sorted. But I have 1 more question..

My son at weekends stays with grandparents and they don't not have Internet. so the games with gold or digital games I've downloaded does he need internet to play them ?
