Windows 7: "SPY" Remote access

"SPY" Remote access

first some background. I have 2 computers, lets call them Laptop 1(Mine) and Laptop 2 (The family laptop, the one my 13 year old son uses). we have a network setup between the two computers to share files. We have at&t highspeed internet by the way and latop 1 has been upgraded to windows 7 and laptop 2 came with windows 7. Laptop 1 is 32 bit and Laptop 2 is 64 bit. Both are Hp Pavilion Laptops but different models.
Also latop two has the administrative account(me and my wife's which is passworded) and a second account that my son uses.
Now the question.
I want to remotely see laptop 2 through laptop 1's screen. the reason I want to do this is to "see" what my son is up to on laptop 2 even when I'm not in the room.
Is their a way to get remote access to his account on laptop2 and see what he's doing from laptop 1 WITHOUT HIM KNOWING.
If there is no way to do it with windows 7 does anybody know of a free reliable software I can download or buy. Should I go to a local "Spy shop" I have nearby? has anybody heard of tightvnc? it supposedly allows instant remote access, but it talks about controling the other pc and i'm not interested necessarily in controling it, although that woulld be a bonus. will that work?

When you reply with an answer remember that I will need detailed instructions.
for example go to laptop 1 and do this, then this...then go to laptop 2 and do this, then this.....or whatever
