HI,
The simplest way may be to use the Recovery HD, but this won't work if you have FileVault enabled.

For got parent contral i user name


There are 3 main user types in Mac OS
Administrator: Can do pretty much anything, including adding and managing other users, installing apps, and changing settings.
Standard: Created by an administrator. Standard users can install apps and change settings for their own account... can't add other users or change other users' settings.
Managed: Users who are managed with parental controls can access only the apps and content specified by the administrator managing the user.

Assuming that the parental account that you are referring to is indeed an administrator, there are a few possible solutions, some of which are version dependent. See here for details:

Can't unlock admnistrator macbook pro i7 4GB RAM


Boot into Single User Mode and remove a setup file
  • Restart the Mac holding down the Command+S keys, this will take you into Single User Mode and it's Terminal interface
  • You'll need to check the filesystem first:
  • fsck -fy
  • Next, you must mount the root drive as writeable so that changes will save:
  • mount -uw /
  • Now, type the following command exactly, followed by the enter key:
  • rm /var/db/.applesetupdone
    reset-forgot-mac-password.jpg
  • After removing the applesetupdone file, you need to reboot, type 'reboot' and hit enter
Stage 2) Create a New User Account upon System Boot
You aren't finished, but the hard part is now over - no more command lines, you'll now be in the familiar Mac OS X GUI to finish the password reset process. In this step we just create a new user account as if you just got a new Mac:
  • Upon reboot, you will be presented with the traditional "Welcome Wizard" startup screen just like when you first get a Mac
  • Follow the welcome wizard and create a new user account - making the account name different from the account whose password you want to recover
  • Continue on and boot into Mac OS X with this newly created user account, this new user account is an Administrator and has administrative access
Stage 3) Reset the Forgot Password via System Preferences
You are almost done, now you just need to reset the forgotten user account password using the Accounts control panel:
  • Once you are booted into Mac OS X, click on the Apple logo and then navigate down to "System Preferences"
  • Click on the "Accounts" icon in System Preferences
  • Click on the Lock icon in the lower left corner of the "Accounts" preference window and enter the newly created user credentials, this enables you to change other user accounts and reset other users passwords
  • On the left side user panel, select the user account containing the forgotten password
  • With the user of the forgotten password account selected, click on the "Reset Password" button
  • Enter a new password for that user, be sure to include a meaningful hint so you don't forget it again!
  • Close System Preferences and reboot the Mac
  • You can now login to the previously inaccessible user account using the newly reset password! All user files and settings are maintained as before the password was forgotten
Optional: If you'd like, you can delete the temporary account you created to reset the users password. This is wise for security purposes.

Password problem


Click Restart at the login window
While the computer is restarting, hold down "Command-S" until you see text scrolling through the window.
This boots the computer into single user mode.

At the Localhost% prompt type:
/sbin/mount -uw //sbin/SystemStarter

You will then see various services starting up.

When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:
passwd root

It will then ask you to type the new root password twice, so do so.

After entering the new password, type:
reboot

At the login window, enter username root wih the new password.

Once you are connected, you can use the Multiple Users application (/Applications/Utilities) to change your normal user's password, or create a new user account. 


Good Luck!!
