Cannot send message, iMessage needs to be enabled to send message? Iphone 4S

Every Apple device can send messages to another apple device. This messages are called iMessages.

When you try to send a message to your son's iPhone your iPhone will try to send it via internet using iMessages.

In order to "tell your iPhone" to use regular text messages make sure that your son's cellular number is correctly stored in your contacts. That way if your iMessage fails, your iPhone will send it via regular text message.

You will see the difference between both because the "send" button and contact name will turn green when using regular text messages and blue when you're using iMessages.

I phone sent text bubbles turned from blue to green?

Your messages are green because those are text messages sent through SMS while others are blue because they have been sent through iMessage (iphone to iphone) which uses Wi-fi or data.
