13 year watching gay porn
2

rayn · 09/06/2020 05:03

So my son has just turned 13. Caught him on his phone at 3 in the morning and just confiscated.
Got messages pinging every two minutes and it appears he has been looking at hardcore explicit gay porn.
Without a doubt he is gay. However I need to talk to him about the porn and it really bothers me what he is looking at!
Any pointers on this? I don't want him thinking this is what a normal gay relationship is like!

this link below is helpful with how to deal with talking to dc about what they have seen

I think I would focus on the porn, rather than the fact that it is gay porn. You might find it helpful to read the link below

make sure to install parental controls on the devices (I know iphones have lots of parental controls that you can limit access to adult websites etc)

hope this helps a little!

Thanks! I had a chat this morning with him. He is relieved I know he is gay. Discussed the perils of all porn so hopefully he took it in. Will defo look at those links x
