Make sure she is in the audio group. Add her to that group, log her in again 
and she should have sound.

Sudo always works with the users password. The sudo-configuration tells sudo 
which users may use sudo. The default edgy /etc/sudoers allows all users in 
the admin group to use sudo. Remove your daughters account from that group, 
log her in and she should not be able to use sudo any longer.
