    You can restart your Mac using the Command+R keys to boot into your Recovery HD. Once you get the OS X Utilities menu, you will want to click on the Menu Bar and find Terminal (sorry, not on my Mac right now). Open Terminal and type the following on the command line; then hit Return. You will get a GUI screen to select the user account you want to reset the password for. Follow the prompts to change that user's password.
