    Parental Controls/Login Password

    I have my windows 8.1 PC setup so that a password is needed to log into the PC.
    My daughter was able to bypass this by merely turning the PC off and then back on again. How do I go about preventing this from happening? There is no point in having a password on my PC if a merely child can bypass it by shutting it down and powering it back up.
    Thanks in advance.
