ewwwwhh totally grossed out

I have an 11 year old son and I was picking up his room to make a point and have him try to keep his room clean and start an award system , like a chore reward activity. I thought it would only be fair if we started this with his room being cleaned.

I cleaned under his bed and found a white t shirt with stains . I left it there but I am so grossed out to know my son is masturbating .

Should I say anything or not.

While it might not be an easy task it can be done. 

Quoting caravanmom1972:

I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea on me. I did post this in another group because I wasn't sure which would be the best group.

My son is autistic so its not an easy task for him to do his own laundry .

I am sorry for feeling that this scenario is gross .

I'm not sure I would talk to him about masterbation, I think I would just tell him you found a dirty shirt under his bed and he needs to pick up after himself and make sure all dirty laundry is in the hamper. I'm sure as he gets a bit older he will start to do the deed in a more appropriate place like the shower or use tissues.
I think I would though if he is obviously starting to masterbate and go through puberty, consider having the whole sex talk and on what's appropriate with what he is going through and how he is changing.

Does he have a good male role model or a father in his life who would be willing to discuss it with him for you? This might be easier on him, and less embarassing for you both.

I as his parent should be able to discuss this though . I am his mother
