A certain teen offspring of mine is ordering ITunes songs at will and regardless of cost or my warnings for her to stop. It's set up so you just go into ITunes store and order, i.e. it bypasses any password question. How can I force the process to demand a password which I have already set? This way she would have to ask permission from me, and I can decide yes or no.

    In itunes 7.5 there is a radio button under parental preferences that you can click to disable the itunes store. You can then lock/unlock the feature with your administrator password by clicking on the padlock.

    Remove your CC info. Re-add it when you want to purchase then remove it immediately after.

    Also, change your iTunes password and log out of the iTunes store.

    Select the iTunes store in iTunes.
    Log out of the iTunes store.
    Find any item to purchase (or download free) then click on Buy.
    A window will pop up and ask you to log in to the store.
    Uncheck *Remember password for purchasing*. This will require a password a when you make a purchase. If you have removed your CC info, that will also need to be input to make a purchase.
