Perhaps you can shed some light on this or maybe I should start another post. My 14 year old son has discovered girls in the past year. When I discovered this he had shared it with me and that is it. Nothing else was open to discussion on this matter, however I proceeded to tell him about sex, std s, teen pregnancy and of course condoms. Thankfully he listened but offered nothing else. Thats ok I accepted that, because I am a single mom and understand that it is uncomfortable for him to talk to me about this. He/we don't have any male figures in our lives except for his grandpas for him to feel comfortable to take advice from. Because to him they are dinosaurs. I understand that too. Although I discovered a hiden box of condomes and commened him for being smart enough to buy them...I try not to pry too much and let him come mention things in passing (few and far between) I have even met the last two girls that he calls his girlfriend in passing. The problem is that on several occasions accidentally neglected to log out of his Facebook. Of course I read his messages and although his Facebook photo is one kissing his current girlfriend he is desperately reaching out to other girls for some play. Most of the girls are flirtatiously opposed to anything, some are open. How do I approach him and tell him that this is inappropriate without letting him know that the only way I could find out about this is my reading what he considers his private conversations?
