I would like my son to be able to text me when we are both traveling to the US, but do not plan on purchasing a US data plan for him.  Are we able to communicate through text without extra charges, considering we share the same account?

No, once you are in the US, you will be roaming and you will need to either pay, or get an add-on to text even if on the same account, Julie.
