Alrighty.. I know I don't post as things have been going great with my two.. until today

Tommy is 10 and is showing signs of puberty. 

Today, he was caught at school masturbating...

Sooo not ready to deal with this..

How did you moms teach your son's this isn't appropriate behavior???

No experience! But maybe keep emphasizing that its private, and an at home only activity. Good luck!

 Yes just keep telling him that he can only do that at home in his room or the bathroom that it is private. I've heard a lot of moms in other groups that have told their boys this and that after a few times of reminding them it all worked out for them.

No clue, I have a girl. Believe me it gets rough with her too. That time of the month is no joy and I can't find any help..

Did that the first day.. told him it's for home only

And yesterday, he was caught doing it again.. so we just need to keep telling him daily until it stops

 Oh god I never even thought about that issue. My ds is horrible at remembering not to do things.

I would keep emphasizing the idea that it is private and hopefully it will click!

Thanks for the heads up, my son is 7 1/2 and this wasn't even on my radar.
