My son bought a new mobile phone and connected it to our WIFI. He went to go on facebook but it gave him MY facebook login details and password and it even let him sign into my account If he can do it then all his friends can do it, and I don't know what other information they can get of mine...How do I stop it Please

Neither your WiFi connection nor Facebook "gives" anyone login credentials.   If those popped up then you can be pretty sure he knows them and has been using them.

 

You present login credentials, login credentials are not presented to you.

What happened is you logged in to facebook on that device and when you logged in you got a pop up that asked you if you wanted to save your login details. You selected "yes" without reading it im guessing. The only way your credentials could be there is if you put them there or if your son had got them from somewhere else.

You need to get the phone and delete internet history and be careful with saving your login details. I use public computers at the library or in college sometimes and people have always left some kind of account saved or logged in.

You would also be well advised to change your password (depending on what browser is being used, if you save your credentials in the browser, the plain text can be revealed) I also just finished reading a couple of articles  of why it is a bad idea to store your passwords in the browser, and how you are better off using some kind of 3rd party password manager (LassPass seems to be very well spoken of, and it's free!)
