    My son has the Nexus 7 and I have the Nexus 4. We use the same Google account so we can share apps, etc...

    I don't want him to be able to see my gMail emails or photo's etc....that gte synced on my Google accounts. How can I eliminate this? I unchecked the sync option for gMail for example, but I still see all my emails there still.

    Can you setup his N7 with his own gmail account, then add your account to his Google Play store only -> open store, setup menu (three vertical dots), account, add account.

    You can set there what to sync, i.e. no emails, etc...).

    That way he could share your apps, games, etc.. from the store without having access to your emails, etc..
