Halocho #938 - The Bracha on a Bar Mitzva

A boy becomes Bar Mitzva at age 13 and is then considered a full adult. It is customary to call him up to the Torah as soon as possible after his 13th birthday.

After he had been called up to the Torah and said the final Bracha, his father then makes a Bracha:

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֱלקֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם
 אֲשֶׁר פְּטָרַנִי מֵעָנְשׁוֹ שֶׁל זֶה

Blessed are You, Hashem, our Gcd, King of the universe, Who has freed me from the punishement due this boy.
