Even if he's not getting paid for it, he's learning alot and will make him VERY marketable for his skills. And programing is something that when you get into the zone, you don't want to leave for fear that you will lose track of where you are and start making mistakes.
Also, be thankful they are at home programming and watching movies. They could be out getting into real trouble.
