Sorry, but you cannot just password the wallpaper. Only the user
account. Of course you could create a separate standard user account for
your son so that it doesn't matter what he changes the wallpaper to, and
you do not have to worry about him being able to make changes that
affect the whole computer.
If you like for an alternative, you could use the STEP TWO section in
both METHOD ONE and METHOD TWO in the tutorial below to prevent the
wallpaper from being changed.
Hope this helps,
