SOURCE: there are gear shifts on
I strongly suggest taking the bike and your son into a bike shop. They will be happy to show him not only how to shift the gears, but why and when. Also they may even throw in some maintenance tips.
The easiest settings will be labeled 1 and the hardest the larger number. if you were too look at the bike where the chain is, the gears that are closest to the frame are the easiest and the ones far away are the hardest. In the back this means the largest gears are the easiest in the front they are opposite, smallest gears are the easiest.
There are a number of good books and many free instructional videos on youtube that show shifting principles. The biggest issue for 10 year olds is whether they can reach the levers comfortably.

these can be adjusted, but the first thing to do is to change the entire gear cable.
spraying the whole thing with wd40 or simillar may help, but the lining of the outer cable has almost certainly worn and is causing the problem you are having.
this is very common. bike makers tend to use relatively cheap cables, and they can wear and cause problems quite easily.
oil the new cable before you fit it and you should not have any more problems.
hope this helps

Google "bicycle shifting technique", for example:
You should NEVER run cross-chained (big-big or small-small). The drive train performs best when the chain line is as close to straight as possible.
Excess sideways stress on the chain will wear it out prematurely and decrease its normal efficiency.
To demonstrate this for yourself, put the bike in the same combination of gears you
