This would basically be my suggestion as well, since you want to get him
in the habit of using a password rather than disabling passwords
entirely.  Just make it a password based on a simple, compact keyboard
pattern, such as 1234 or (assuming a qwerty keyboard) qweasdzxc, so that
he's not moving from one part of the keyboard to another and potentially
making mistakes while doing so.
