You will have to restore the phone. Hopefully you have sync'd the phone with itunes recently, so you will get some of your information back. To restore the phone you will need to turn the phone off. Now hold down the home button and plug the phone up to your computer. Continue holding the button until you get the itunes symbol with the cable. Then open itunes and follow the instructions to restore. After you restore the phone you can resync it with a previous backup if any were made

How do i disconnect wifi from my modem/router?

You could get more specific answers if you posted what kind of router you have.

In general, you have three basic options: 1) Disable wifi entirely 2) Change wifi password and don't tell your son (be sure to disable guest access if your router has that) 3) Restrict access to specific devices and don't include your son's.

All three of these are accomplished using your router's configuration screens, so what you would do is connect to your router by pointing your web browser at its address, usually something like Then you have to log in using your router's administrative user id and password. Then find the appropriate screen to do one of the options I suggested, make the change, save the change, and usually reboot your router.

These things are not always straightforward, for example, to disable wifi entirely on my Netgear WNR3500L router you have to go to the Advanced wifi options page and uncheck the setting "Enable wireless router radio".

Note: While you are in there you probably ought to change the administrative password for your router because the defaults for most brands are well-publicized and your son could get in there and lock you out or re-enable his access.

IPod is disabled, it says connect to itunes

Changing the password does not lock it. When a device is locked or disabled, it's usually due to too many incorrect password attempts.

An iOS restore / update should be able to override it. Be sure to backup the data.

Without knowing what your son did to the phone, it is impossible provide a correct answer to your problem.

I can only suggest that you call your service provider and request Tech Support assistance. If your phone is locked where you cannot use it at all, tech support can provide you with instructions and an override unlocking code. This will enable your phone again.
