That would show bandwidth usage, but not on a per app basis.

Ideally, this would be something like nethogs [1], but that's not
compatible with OS X.

LittleSnitch [2] and Rubbernet [3] are options that show these stats,
but I'm not sure if you can monitor their stats from across the
network. If you're running one of the Lions on your machine and his,
you could log in as a concurrent user to your sons machine to monitor
these stats.

There's also directly asking him. Let him know that the usage is an
issue, you're looking into it, and he'll be responsible for any
overages that he causes.
