    My daughter's macbook is on the same iTunes account as mine. I have the iTunes store turned off on her computer. Whenever I buy songs on my computer, they automatically download to hers. I don't want this to happen. I want to control which songs go onto her computer. How can I do this?

    Thanks for any help!

    Best solution: get her an iTunes account of her own. There is no reason to share and it makes things like this more difficult.

    If you still want to share, just turn off Automatic Downloads in Preferences in the Store "tab".

    But really, consider a new account. Then you can have full control of it (if that is your desire) via Parental Controls and not mess with your own (main) account.
