I'm giving my Kindle Fire to my son, and want to basically wipe it so he can start from scratch. I am keeping it on my account though. Should I reset to factory default? Or should I go and delete items one by one?

Deregister it and it will be wiped. Then just reregister.

Resetting to factory defaults will remove any stored passwords, browser history, email accounts, and what-not, as well as removing downloaded content. Open Settings, tap More -> Device -> Reset to Factory Defaults. After that, you'll need to re-register it to your account.
