I somehow ended up in a place that showed Administrative Privileges and I
noticed my son had privileges to change things so I changed it so he
couldn't. Problem is now I can't now do anything. It says I don't have
administrative privileges anymore. I can't even change the time on the
clock.

How do I fix this??

Boot to Safe Mode and login as Administrator. You can fix the privileges
there.
