I don’t know how to handle a situation. My son is a lovely boy but he’s a definite teen now. He’s 13 yrs old and has porn on his phone. I was using an App but he’s tampered with it. Or got a friend to.
Should I force him to remove TikTok and Snap Chat. I’ve re downloaded an App to block mature content from now on. Maybe I’m incredibly green, but I don’t want to raise a son who looks at woman in that way. It’s really upset me. I’ve found the mobile phone and PS4 has got out of control since Covid. He never wants to spend any time with the family. He’s always on his own with his phone or gaming with his friends. The porn is the last straw for me.

I'd ask @MNHQ to move this over to the teenage section.

You might get a few more responses over there.

Given the omnipresence of porn, he's guaranteed to go use it for years, if not forever. But he'll probably get much better at hiding it from you. I know it's not helpful hit it's the most likely scenario. There are myriads of ways of accessing it and hiding usage, teens are hormonal and tech savvy, so you stand no chance. We let hardcore porn become acceptable and normalised. This is the price for being 'cool' and catering to men's lowest instincts.
