You can create a sub account for him with his own Id and it'll share your wallet. The sub account will NEVER become a master account even when he turns 18.

Been a while since I did it for my daughter. You'll need an e-mail for them. Not the one you used for your account. You'll need to create a new user on the PS3 all the way to the left on the XMB. Then you sign up for PSN with that new user using his e-mail. Put in his correct birthday. I may have used www.qriocity.com to create my daughters. Try on the PS3 but if that doesn't work go to qriocity.com.

Turn on your PS3 and navigate all the way to the left. You should see an option for Add Account or New User. Create a new user, now go to Sign In under the Playstation Network tab, make an entirely new account using his information, but be sure to put his age as 18 unless you want to restrict the content he can view on the store. From there you add your billing information to that account and whenever he wants to use the PS3 he just signs in to his user and all is good.

Basically to create a sub account, create a new account. If the age for the account holder is under 17, you will be told that a Master Account holder must finish making the sub account.

 

Here is a video from the Playstation Knowledge Center that explains how to make a sub account. The "Sub Account" explainantion begins at 3:50 into the video.
