My son's Grandfather got my son a computer for him to do his school work on. At least that was the main point in the first place. But his father told his dad that he is using it for porn, I don't know, I don't see it, so I can't say for sure. Son is 17. His dad is trying to tell his father that he doesn't need it because he thinks that his son has been looking at it instead of him. But my son's father also uses it. I know for a fact that he has used the computer for the same purpose in the past and he can't deny it, because I saw it. He also says that he keeps putting stuff on the computer that is causing viruses and so forth. Now my son is mad at his dad because he changed the settings where he can't get on it when he wants to, his dad took over his account on the computer, which I thought was selfish. I told him so. His dad says that he only changed the settings to where he can't view the more mature sites. And again, I don't know, I don't use it and his dad doesn't live with us.
I can't take sides without really knowing what is going on, and personally I don't want to be in the middle either. It's almost as if they don't trust each other. I know how crazy that sounds. But what would you do, my son, I want to help. My son doesn't want to use the computer me and my daughter uses. I guess since it's older he prefers the newer one. But I know that either you use what you have or do without. What should I do?

I agree with missanc! I KNOW boys can be interested in porn, but it does NOT have to be via a computer!! If he wants to look at nude women, there are a plethora of MAGAZINES he (or his father) can subscribe to! The main concern I would have with accessing adult sites on a computer is that SOME of those sites, from what I have read, link to CHILD PORN sites, and your son COULD face being inadvertantly labeled a SEX OFFENDER as a result, if authorities are watching him--and they do randomly watch such sites!! So I would tell your son be forewarned!!
