most modems have parental controls built in, this means you can block the internet to devices based on MAC address (unique serial number for each device) at certain times, we use this for our children otherwise they would be up to all hours of the night

@gregmcc is correct Smiley Happy. Don't know about your set up but you could also go for an option like this http://search.mitre10.co.nz/hardware/Timer-Switch for the modem, depending on if your son has physcial access to the modem or not Smiley Happy.
