This is rediculous, my son masterbates day and night practically nonstop. How long does this behavior go on?

I'm not trying to keep track of any of this. When I walk past his room or the bathroom he is almost always playing with it. He can't keep this up. I'm afraid he'll get caught at school doing this or in public.

  • well how old is he??
    It's normal for a teenager, I'm sure, and as long as he's doing it privately, then really, there isn't much you can do. But if he's doing it with the doors wide open, I'd certianly explain to him that it's only something to be done in private quarters!

  • I agree that there is no shame in it but it is called private touch for a reason. I mean seriously though he has just found out that it feels good...why wouldn't he want to do it. The sanitizer is a must lol.

  • There's nothing wrong with masturbation, but I'd be concerned that is seems constant. This would definitely warrant a conversation with his pediatrician. I'd even suggest a psychologist. It's normal for kids to masturbate, but I think there's a reason he's not able to control it.

  • I think I would explain to him that he is obvious first. Then I would explain the privacy issues. And a last suggestion is to encourage him to slow down. Yes, it's normal, but it shouldn't rule his life.
