  • Lock up the phones and Kindle when not in use.

  • I'm having trouble understanding how a 15 year old would be addicted to porn. More likely, he's just a normal horny 15 year old boy and is enjoying the porn.

    If it's a true addiction, he can have counseling.

    If it's just normal horny boy stuff, do as PMS said. You can also talk to him about how fake it is, and how real women are nothing like the girls in the movies, and how they objectify women.

  • How did he get addicted in the first place?
    Have you tried counseling?
    What have you tried so far?

  • Define addicted.

    You either want to find a solution or you don't. Are you willing to lock up phones and turn off the internet? Take the door off of his room so he has no privacy?

  • Troll! Remember, it's still summer vacation!

    Hey worried, if you want help, you have to communicate!

  • If this is real, I assume you've actually seen your son looking at porn on your phone or Kindle, or are you just assuming he did because of the browsing history? How about taking away his ability to go off on his own and snoop, since he can't be trusted? Keep him busy and under your watchful eyes, and like others have said, lock up the electronics.

  • well...maybe dad can pick him up a few videos at the adult store and some magazines too. At 15 he's probably like most boys, horny!
