While its true there are some exceptional young and capable herpers, everyone must look out for their own well being when it comes to business, and concerns about liability.
The reality is that 13 year olds, are not out on their own, paying their own keep, nor owning their own premises...
They are at home, under Mom & Dad's roof, living under Mom and Dad's rules
I agree with the other posters... Insist on making the business transaction happen between you and the parents. Speak with them directly on the phone and if it proceeds get a certified cheque(wih parents name) or major credit card on the sale
If the kid's herp interests are in fact being supported by the parents, he should have no problem involving them in the transaction.
Now if he wants it left a big secret from the parents , then that is exactly what to worry about.
