Ok we need the parental control password ***** I do not want to give them my amazon password
Expert:  Nathan replied 11 months ago.

Thanks for clarifying. There are a few things we can try for this.

On the password ***** type 'resetmykindle' without the quotations as the password. This will reset the device to factory, however Amazon saves all of your purchases so that you don't lose them. Simply reregister the Kindle with the same username and password ***** before.

OR Try to enter this number:###-##-####

Let me know if any of those work.
