 IF YOU HAVE A 12 YEAR OLD BOY/GIRL AND THEY HAVE BEEN CAUGHT WATCHING PORN AND OTHER SEXUALLY CHARGED CONTENT, WOULD YOU STILL GET UPSET IF YOU CONTINUE CATCHING THEM WATCHING IT AND BLOCK THEM FROM SEEING IT OR WOULD YOU TALK TO THEM AND GET THEM "PREPARED" FOR WHAT MAY COME UP IN THE FURTURE (SEX, STD'S, ETC.)?  WOULD IT BE PREMITTED IF THEY HAVE ALREADY STARTED CALLING CHAT LINES, WATCHING PORN, ETC. OR WOULD YOU STILL TRY AND CONTROL WHAT THEY WATCH?

I wouldn't want them watching it. Most porn is not realistic. It's like girls and fairy tales who always get told that they are a princess and will have everything in life they've ever wanted. It's unrealistic. Same thing with boys and sex.

This and if caught after parental blocks then I would take all forms of technology away and make him earn it back.

That's a tough one. On one hand, sexual curiosity is very normal at that age, especially given how much exposure there is to it. On the other hand, allowing access to chat lines and a free-for-all with porn when you're dealing with a 12 year old is too far.

 WELL NO YOU WOULDN'T "LET" THEM. I AM SURE YOU WOULDN'T JUST PUT IT ON IN FRONT OF THEM, BUT YOU DO KNOW THAT IF THEY ARE ALREADY EXPOSED TO IT, THERE IS NO REAL LIMIT TO STOPPING THEM FROM DOING IT AGAIN....THEY WILL GET TO IT NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO TO STOP IT. IT MAKES THEM EVEN MORE SNEAKY AT IT. ONCE THEY ARE AT A FRIENDS HOUSE, THEY CAN SEE IT THERE.

I'd talk to them and ban porn material and limit internet access in my home. I'd want to know why they were obsessively trying to look at it. It's one thing to be curious but concerning when I'm constantly seeing them trying to sneak peeks.
