  • LOL. Sixteen year old boys: what ya gonna do? I'd leave it go. They are by nature totally preoccupied by sex and sexual things. They'll grow out of it one day (ha, when they're 80!)

  • I'd confront him and tell his father.

  • Both are 16 ysr old; certainly a curious phase; talk to them and let them know that you know about it; take your son in your confidence and clear his doubts. It's better he gets the information from you or from the person he trusts rather than getting all the wrong information wrong from outside....

  • When a similiar thing happened at my house I waited until the other boy had left. I walked into my sons room and I looked at him and said. "Respect and trust are only present when they are returned. I do not go through your personal things. Don not go through mine" and I walked out. He was too stunned to say more. I would make his Dad aware of the exchange..but let him know you've handled it unless there is further incident.

  • If it really distresses you, tell him to stay out of your stuff, but I wouldn't confront him specifically over that incident because that will likely embarrass him and do some major damage to your relationship with him. He should be able to come to you with problems and insecurities. At this age, it is vital (especially since he's your Step-son) to keep things between you comfortable; respecting his privacy even as he invades yours, is one of those times as a parent you should bite your tongue, IMO.

  • Just say "I saw that you were looking through my drawer. If you want something out of my room I would prefer that you ask me first, please. What were you looking for in my underwear drawer, Im sure I know where it is and could help you find it." (Dont laugh)
    Also tell your husband and let him decide if he thinks they should be punished for invading your privacy, it might really bother him.
