How to approach or stop sons from masturbating?

I think both of my sons have discovered masturbation at the same time because they both have been leaving stains in their rooms and clothing. My first son being 13 and my second being 11. Does the two year difference change anything? I am wondering how should I be dealing with this? I have noticed they looked up "bikini women" on their laptop. Should I confront them about this? Perhaps make them stop? I'm a single mom and they have no male figures in their lives

I'm a single mom of a 13 year old whom is CONSTANTLY going at it. He tries his best but the damn thing gets to be too much (and way too obvious). He's been good a sneaking away, but not always so good at closing doors (or shower curtains, etc). Believe me I have a great many stories (and his particular problem is larger than most could imagine). There are times when I clean his room and I'll find a sock that is literally filled with his... "explosion". Is it normal of them to have so much??

It's perfectly natural for them to masturbate. You just need to talk with them and make sure they understand that they have to clean up. Absolutely nothing to be ashamed of!

Honestly you just have to let them masturbate. I know there's a two year age difference between your sons but it doesn't matter if they're both starting puberty together. The science is the same they're both starting to produce sperm. I have three sons and they all did the same thing and they all thought I didn't know. In fact their web search is pretty tame compared to what my sons searched for. You can try and limit their web search but by now they probably know what's out there. Don't try and stop them from masturbating since they're probably producing more sperm than they can get out.

I know it's hard to accept that your sons are turning into sexual beings but you'll love them all the same. Now is a good time to teach them to wash their own clothes.

Im surprised that an 11 year old boy is ejaculating.That seems a bit young i thought. Masturbation is like the very basics of all sexuality. My daughter is 13, and my son is 10, and I would rather my both of them to masturbate before they ever have sex.

to JOY ,,,mom....you seem to be very much back in the dark ages on this...why cannot they experience goof feelings,,,religions can brainwash people and convince them that good feelings are from the guy with the PITCH FORK ~ this is gross ignorance,and can cause irreparable damage to kids psyche,saddening them with shame ,guilt ,and gross anxiety ,maybe for the rast of their lives...listen to religion...religions used to torture tens of thousands of innocents to death ...rather search your OWN Soul's revelation off the INNER-SPIRIT ....for that is the ONLY place one can find the TRUTH INDEED within that part of we humans that is DIVINE INTELLIGENCE AND WISDOM

~~" A 15 YR OLD BOY "~~in the cow-boy days,,,a boy of 15 could be married and start to raise a family,, AND ..his sons would help him in the family livelihood... now,,boys especially, must have outlet because the pressure builds up to being unbearable..
~~Now what if sex did not cause pregnancy ,,and then there wouldn't be any reason to prevent teens from having consensual sex,,,right ??? but now here come the bug-a-boo~~~ the religions would pressure the congresses,,still to make teen sex illegal ,on the grounds of the intense evil of good feelings,,,which we all know are evil,and sends us all to the hot place.. right ??~~.. one lady says that a little boy masturbating will go to hell ~~ ( her words )"~~ if he doesn't plead forgiveness to his priest or minister, and never do it again...

to enjoy masturbation is normal and NOT bad,or evil...you cannot stop it if you try to do so you will cause your son great guilt an anxiety, AND HE WILL TAKE ON VERY SERIOUS COMPULSIONS AND BE COMPELLED OUT OF GUILT AND SHAME TO MASTURBATE HIMSELF TO PIECES...HE NEEDS TO KNOW THAT HIS MOM IS NOT AGAINST HIS NATURAL FEELINGS AS INDEED MANY RELIGIONS TRY TO MAKE SUCH GOD-GIVEN ATTRIBUTES ,VERY EVIL.. THEY DO THIS . out of horrible ignorance... PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS.... that would be . very sad indeed it can cause great psychological harm ,, Now let me ask,~~~, IN THE OLD DAYS THE CHURCH MIGHT HAVED HARMED YOUR SON.. EVEN IN TELLING HIM HE WILL BE BURNED FOR-EVER. Mom,..you really do need to consider why is it that good feeling many times are foolishly judged bad by ignorant bafoones...
good feelings are natural the Creator made it that way SO PLEASE TRY TO be kind and considerate toward the good things and the goodness of your boys,They are doing NOTHING BAD OR WRONG

The urge to masturbate may be normal, however, it is sinful to partake in it. Tell your son that when he wakes up from sleep and has this urge, he is to immidiitely begin praying to the blessed Mother to help him to resist. Also, he must confess this to a Catholic priest. It's okay if he isn't Catholic, he still has to do this in order to save his soul.

@becky maybe you should give him a clean sock, and let him fill it for 15 minutes. Then you can see whethet he's lying :)

@Jasmine So I found one this morning, filled again and I decided to confront my son. If anything to get him to change the sock. I asked him, politely, to please stop waiting until one fills up. He turned bright red and I felt badly. I made sure to tell him that masturbation is normal, but the hygiene of using a sock over and over until it's filled up is not so good.

That's when he mumbling tells me that the sock I found was from just once this morning. I was shocked to say the least (at first) and now I'm worried there might be something wrong. The sock I found this morning had a LOT of semen in it. Like the whole foot area was filled and weighing the damn thing down. That can't be normal.

@becky you should ask him how long does he change his sock, it's not good for the sock if it goes uncleaned more than 10 days

i am a mom with several kids...masturbation is natural when there is no mate...you cannot stop it....why be ashamed of this when it is natural...if you scold them ,it will cause guilt depression and anxiety ..and cause them to do it to great excess, out of guilt,,, many religions also teach that good feeling is evil.......have you been raised to think that certain body parts are nasty ,bad,and " of the devil"... actually the body is beautiful i am a single mom and we are clothing free in our home...no shame ,or guilt..why hide your bodies from each other, we think that is silly.i am a children's Councillor,send me a pm if you wish to communicate best wishes,mom

Oh! I have been through the same thing with my son. He is now 15, and it really isn't an issue anymore but a few years back it was a big issue. I too was divorced from his dad and my husband (step-dad) didn't really feel comfortable approaching him about it since their relationship was in the early stages. Like you I also found that he was looking up porn on his laptop and at that point I knew I had to step-in, it was crazy awkward for both of us. I made it a point to stress how unnatural porn was, how women were not really like that, how sex is not and should not be viewed in this way. Again, it was awkward but I think I got my point across, either that or he never wanted to have that sit down with mom ever again..... I made it a point to get more involved with his online activity, I made sure he knew I would check his phone and his laptop, etc. I haven't found anything since.

When talking to my husband about it I realized that this sexual drive is very natural for men and new and exciting for you men entering puberty. As a girl, I really never whet through this type of thing so I was amazed. My husband and I have very good lines of communication and he was able to help me understand that masturbation is not something I should shame him for. Oh, and though I never brought up the conversation about masturbation, I did tell him if he didn't begin to keep things clean I would be going through his bedroom to clean it. That horrified him enough to keep everything clean.... Blessings to you! Hopefully this is a stage that passes quickly!

Boys at this age are very curious about the opposite sex, and there are a lot of unhealthy information on the internet about women and sex in general. Do you have a filter at home to at least screen out some of these unhealthy content? Pornography is very addicting and can lead to all kinds of problems (like masturbation and more) down the road. I have read an article about this and perhaps you might find this useful:

Puberty for boys can start at 11, unless your doctor has mentioned anything about their growth rates it sounds normal to me.

The best way to deal with masturbation is accepting you don't need to deal with it. It's normal, natural, and expected at their ages.

If you're concerned about what they see on the web, that is something you'll need to sit and talk with them. There's a lot out there that they don't need to see, a lot that doesn't even pertain to sex.
