Just recently I found 3 pair of womens underwear in my son's room. We have 5 boys in our house right now so we were trying to figure out where they came from. One of them finally told us it was my 8 year old son. I asked him about it & told him I knew the truth & he started crying & said it was him. I asked him where he got them from & he said he took it from his dad's girlfriend. I asked why & he said I dont know I was just curious. I told him its ok to be curious but I would rather you talk to me, dad or your step dad so that we can be honest & give you the answers you are looking for. I didnt yell at him b/c I dont want him to feel like its wrong to be curious, but I did tell him that he should not go through someone else's belongings especially something like that since its so personal. My husband thinks i should tell his dad but i dont want his girlfriend to be weirded out about it or act weird around my son. Any advice?Answer Question

I don't know.... it broke my heart to hear that he immediately started crying when you confronted him about it. He obviously knew it was wrong and must have felt embarrassment/shame about it otherwise he wouldn't have cried....
Part of me says, tell the Dad.... the other part of me says keep it to yourself. I guess you'll have to figure that one out since you know your ex and maybe you can judge how he will react to this. Hopefully, this is nothing to worry about.... but, I would worry about the dad and his girl friend freaking out and embarrassing your son more. Shame is a powerful thing and it can hurt deeply. Good Luck!!
