update my 12 yr old made a video of himself

Occasionally I let my kids use my mp3 player. It also takes pictures and videos. Well today I plugged it into my computer to listen to music. It played through the pictures first, then videos. I was completely shocked, disgusted, and apalled to see a video pop up of my oldest ds in the bathroom peeing and playing with himself. I am not entirely sure how I should go about the conversation about privacy, not putting anything involving his parts on video. That right there is child pornography and highly illegal. Any ideas on how to explain it to him in a way that will actually sink in.

Ok I spoke to him. He acted surprised and completely denied the video. I had the same talk with my nine year old as well. However the twelve yr old is chunkier in the belly and it was a down shot so it couldn't have been anyone else, because no other children that around that size come around my house. So I explained to both of them that it's a private thing that can not be shared on video or any other way. Also that it's illegal and that I could have spent a very long time in prison had someone else seen that. And I don't believe anything was sent out because they're Internet and phone usage is very closely monitored. Even they're ds devices don't have web access.

Ask him if he made a video. When he either admits it or you tell him you saw it whatever, tell him it's inappropriate. Then tell him why. The reasons you listed here are enough to start. I would leave out the disgusted and appalled part.
Just tell him to never do that again. He wouldn't want other people seeing it etc.

Ditto. I would talk to him about it the same way you would talk to us about it, I would also look into therapy.

This just doesn't seem like normal 12 year old stuff. My friends and I did silly stuff with cameras at that age but something like that would have never crossed my mind. I would be concerned with what he has seen that has inspired this behavior.
