  • Totally normal, thank GOD that you have decent common sense and told her it was normal and natural. Just remind her that she needs to keep her door CLOSED

  • Well, I don't think it's abnormal for a 13 year old to masturbate but I will say it's a little...strange.... for one to be masturbating completely naked with the door open and make themselves heard while staying at a relatives house.

  • I would always definitley knock on a door before entering a 13 year olds room unless I thought something was wrong like they were hurt or doing drugs or something. Didnt she have her door shut? If not, I would talk to her about making sure to do those types of things in total privacy.

  • Totally normal and natural. For both girls and boys. Nothing wrong with.

    I think you gave her a great response!

  • thats great...i would think that most teens though would have their guard up a little more when it comes to privacy...they wouldnt just be laying on a bed naked masturbating. I call troll.

  • Ask her to simply close and lock the door. Seems like it was far too easy for you to peek in.

  • I think you did a great job handeling the situation. At least shes experiencing with herself and no one else!

  • i know when i was her age i had my door shut but since i lived in my parents house they had every right to go in there.i know i got caught couple of times.

  • You handled it great! I would also let her know that there is a time and place, and maybe if she is going to do it again that she should wait until after everyone is asleep and be a little more discrete. But don't make her think it is not okay.
