The easiest way is Ryanair shuttle to Bruxelles-Midi station, from which you can travel to your final destination in Brussels by tram, metro etc. Cost is €12 single, €22 return (so €11 each way in that case), which takes 45-60 mins.

You can also take a local TEC bus, A or 68, from CRL to Charleroi-Sud station, and train from there, which costs €12 single for combo ticket which you can buy from machines at CRL. This journay takes at least 1 hr, depending on connections.

The only reason for one being better than the other on cost grounds would be if your son is younger than 12, in which case he would travel free on the train but pay the same as an adult on Ryanair bus.

Yes we are just back, Ryanair were bang on time if not early but the city shuttle is the best way into Brussels but its very unorganised especially at the Brussels end for your return. To be honest this link would probably put me off returning to this airport as you are not guaranteed a seat on the bus even though I had a time on my ticket....needs sorting, very poor

Yes. CRL = Charleroi Airport, sometimes misleadingly called "Brussels South".
