This is my very first post, but I have been reading posts and topics on here for quite a while and am hoping I could get some parenting advice myself.
I was out of town last weekend and while I was gone my DH let our 8yr old son on the computer to play his sports games. I am usually right there to monitor what and where he was going. My DH thought that if he was 3 feet away on the couch watching tv that would be effective enough.
So upon my return home, I get on to do a history search and come across some questionable searches. After fighting with my hubby /: accusing him of it, the light bulb came on that it might have come from my innocent baby boy (not really a baby, but my first born non-the-less) Anyways, after a rigorous drill session DS admitted it was him. I had to log on and clicked on the sites to see what he saw. It was nausiating!!! Althought they were just pictures, it left NOTHING to the imagination. He confessed that he clicked on a pop up that said “videos” although I think his initial inquiry was innocent, what popped up enlighted his intellect to type in a few more searches.
I am now at a loss and cant seem to stop crying when the images he saw pop into my mind. I guess I am wondering if I need to give the “birds and the beez” talk now, or if that would just scandalize him more thinking that mommy and daddy do something remotely similar to that. Im so confused. He said he had never seen that stuff before or was never told to do the search. He is hometaught, so I have apretty good grip on what he WAS exposed to. I am just freaking out on what to do and any help would be great.
