what about give sudo rights to his daugther?

That was one of the suggestions in the google+ comments.

I would expect he would know about that. However, if that's buried in
network manager, then sudo might not be suitable.

It is not simple. It requires that sudoers be configured in a certain way
(quite different than the current default as shipped) and then the network
manager (or printer config or whatever) has to be implemented in a certain way.

Sudo is an antique delegation method, not well suited for current day
graphical apps.
