Ugh, help me! My "baby" boy is ten now, and for at least six months I have had an idea he was curious and exploring himself, in private luckily. So I let him go. But this week he had snuck his ipod to bed with him at night and when I pick it up after he is asleep, there is porn on it. Seems to just be ads, but still nothing is left to the imagination. I was devastated at first, while he was asleep, but talking to dh realizing we are at the age boys start to get curious or even talk at school about this stuff, dh is going to talk with him, but unsure what to say and how much to say. Obviously It appears He has seen More than i ever did before the agee of 30!! It just happened last night, and Dad and I are doing some research on the best way to handle this, and are going to take the Internet off of his ipod.
I know touching yourself is normal and we shouldn't freak over that. But how in depth should the talk be? DH is questioning what he should allow now? No online searching obviously, but he half joked "do I go buy him a swimsuit edition magazine? " he said his older brother used to get those at 15, and he was about 12 and he would look at them to. His parents never told him anything about puberty or the like, and my mom told me touching yourself was bad, I thought there was something wrong with me to be honest, like I was ill because I felt like I did....... That is awful now that i look back at it.... so any suggestions, pep talks? t
