Try Unplugging it for an hour or so (like how power outages ask you to set up your console) and ask him if he knows it...

or de attaching the HDD :) it's removable you know!
so much power for a little kid :(

SOURCE: reset family setting password

Here's what you need to do:

Turn on your xbox, go to System Settings. From there go to Console Settings. A window should appear that asks you for your password. If you don't know your password, then make up something. It will tell you your password is incorrect, click Reset Password".

You'll need to type in: YrYa


If this fails, then you need to follow these steps to reset your factory settings.

Turn off your xbox. Take your hard drive out (the bulge on the side of your 360. It says HDD on it.) by pressing the gray button, and sliding the piece out. Turn on your xbox, go to System Settings - Console Settings - System Info.

Press these buttons IN ORDER:

LT RT X Y LB RB Y (using the left joystick) go right ONCE A

After all of this is completed, a window should appear asking you if you would like to reset your system settings, press yes!

After all of this is completed, you'll need to turn your xbox off, put the hard drive back in, and turn it back on.

I JUST had this problem, and this is what tech told me to do... and it worked.
Good luck! Down with passwords!

SOURCE: Forgot password to unlock family settings on xbox 360?

I've managed to come across this from someone who called microsoft with the same problem (it seems quite common)
Go into settings Console settings Then device settings (The one with the blue screen)
Then go:
left trigger, right trigger, x, y, left bumper, right bumper,
left with left stick, up with left stick, right with left stick, x

If you have trouble use the pad instead of stick, but I could only get the stick to work..

I hope that helps

Regards
Mike

I forgot my family settings pass code and reset code for the xbox 360


Reset a Forgotten Pass Code To reset your Family Settings pass code after you've forgotten it:
  1. From the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, select Family Settings, Console Controls.
  2. Enter an incorrect pass code.
  3. You will be told that your pass code is incorrect. Select Reset pass code.
  4. You will then be shown your pass-code question and asked to answer it.

    Type your answer using the on-screen virtual keyboard and either your Xbox 360 controller or a standard USB computer keyboard plugged into a controller port on your console. Your answer is case-sensitive and must be typed exactly as you entered it originally. This will clear your original pass code and allow you to enter another.

I dont remember my family passcode.and im trying to figure out how to reset it


Many people have asked how they can reset the family timer settings and/or the passcode on their Xbox 360 console . I have the answer! No cheap tricks! Reset all passcodes and security questions with this code: 1. On the 360 dashboard, scroll over to the "System" tab. 2. On the System tab, click "Console Settings". 3. Scroll down in console settings and click "System Info". 4. When the system info box comes up type in this sequence: LT RT X Y LB RB Y "Left Stick in" (press it in) Y Y A box should come up and say, "Would you like to reset the console to the factory defaults?" Click Reset and you're done! If this doesn't work, and that's highly unlikely, call Microsoft at 1-800-4MY-XBOX (U.S.). Provide them with your registration info and they will tell you how to reset the console. or, CallXbox Customer Support at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269).

Dont know password


if that is a password for the xbox live passcode, the passcode being asked everytime you sign in, the password is the password itself when you try to recover your gamertag

if that is a passcode for watching videos, or something.

that is a family settings passcode, the only way to override that is to call tech support, give the console serial number of your xbox of course, the serial number has a unique reset code attached to it..
tech support will give you some things to press on sytem info page of the dashboard to reset the family settings
