  • well, they are obviously a teen so ground them without any electronics...they're old enough to know better by now.

  • Who are they watching? Someone they know, someone they're spying on, or someone in a movie/magazine?

  • depends who they are watching.Watching someone naked is not "BAD". we are all are naked underneight...kid should not be made to feel guilty for doin somethin that is natural...instead you need to explain the consequences of watchin someone without permission. The fact that there is an age limit on such things should also be said, such as smoking & drinking, driving, etc., NOT BAD< just inapproperiate. If its you & yours porn..then put it up out of sight. Family members-its lack of respect, is how you should approach that one. A neighbor - its a breech of their privacy, can result in jail time. A friend, depending on the age & permission(we all have played doctor/nurse) its just bein courious. again its not bad, its a situation YOU need to explain how to handle PROPERLY! explain sex on their age terms also. it will clear up alot of their feelings that they dont understand.

  • I definitely agree that it depends on the age. If they are younger and just curious, now would be the PERFECT opportunity to talk to them about keeping those parts private and why you should. It's also the opportunity to talk to them about sexual predators.

  • Destiny it is in the 13-17 year old group. That would be teen.

  • the question is under 13-17,so I assume he is a teen,and no I don't think it is ok to watch someone undress,it is called privacy.If he is just curious,get him a health book,and answer the questions he has,but if he is watching someone without their permission,it needs to be stopped.Ground him,or take something he loves away for awhile. Good luck

  • This is a good time to talk and not do not get angry. It's just time to teach about, feelings, private parts, sexual predators, and sex. But most important about respect. The older they are the more you say. And tell them they can come to you for any questions they may have about anything.

  • I agree with gammie. They also need to know the consequences of "watching someone naked", depending on the circumstances. It can be bad or it can be acceptable, depending on the situation.
