I need to change the current administrator to a user so that I can set parental controls on that account.  I need to retain the saved data in the current administrator's account and show it in the new user account.

Any user with Admin privileges is an admin user. No changes need be made. If you wish to make an existing non-admin user to an admin user then open Users & Groups preferences. Click on the lock icon and authenticate. Select the account you want to change then check the box, "Allow user to administer this computer." To remove privileges from another admin user uncheck the same box.
