That is downright &%$*#!.
Personally, I think your kid is BS'g you....
Rule is to not use the same password across all accounts. Expecially banking, financial accounts along with anything else thats important. That way someone finds out one they cannot access everything you have. Point being I from time to time will forget a password now and then. Expecially when some sites force you to use various combinations of letters and numbers. (my bank) So I wouldn't be so harsh on his kid... plus he is just a kid.

Actually, try this:

We use it all the time in our office to reset Administrator passwords when people forget them.
