It's up to you/your parents as owners to take the responsibility to ensure the budgies don't breed continually.

Having so many eggs in such a short amount of time is very hard on the female. Allowing her to continually lay is going to shorten her life considerably.
It has to be hard on the male as well as he's trying to feed and care for the female as well as all the hatchlings in each clutch.

If the pair is mating on an ongoing basis then they need to be physically separated as soon as the chicks are a few days older as PoukieBear indicated.

At that time, put the female in a different cage in a different room and start rearranging the cage every other day.
Limit her daylight hours to no more than 8 per day.
Limit the amount of protein in her diet as well.
Ensure she has a calcium supplement as her body's supply has to be depleted after laying so many eggs.
Make sure there is nothing in her cage that can be used as a nesting site.

If the birds flock call to one another, play music in the two separate rooms to minimize the noise.
