    If your son is using social media apps (e.g., Google +, Facebook, Twitter), it is normal to have heavy data consumption as they are always "on." You can somewhat mitigate this by using the Web interface instead of the apps. You can also go into Settings > Connections > Data usage, and either restrict background data usage by pressing the Menu soft-button and then checking "Restrict background.." or, do it to individual apps in the scrolling list by selecting them and then checking "Restrict background data." You also have the ability on this page to set a mobile data limit, which will deactivate data when the cap you set (by sliding the base of the vertical white bars) is reached.
