Son Masturbating

Almost every night around 11-12 I hear my sons bed moving/sqeaking, for about 20 minutes then it stops. I then hear him get up, go to the washroom flush, then go back to bed. When I wake him in the morning there's a strong odour that hits you in the face when you open the door. I think he's masturbating and I don't know what to do or say because sometimes there's white stuff stuck like glue to his sheets that look like you know what and it's a pain in the butt washing them all the time. Help!

totally normal, and time for him to start doing his own laundry.

It will NOT interfere with relationships, etc, as other posters will suggest, and, as a matter of fact, is part of any normal, healthy sexual relationship.

Hello,

Quite understandable not to know how to approach this. I'd suggest reading a few articles (http://bit.ly/2fgU6LE) or a book on the subject and speaking to your doctor or a psychologist (that you trust and shares your values). Though a number of books and medical professionals will say it's normal and OK, my reading and discussions with professionals has pointed out that if it's done for prolonged periods and well into adulthood, it will usually interfere with being able to establish intimate relationships (and sexual relations) with the opposite sex. So, it's not something to take lightly, but I'd take care should you decide after doing the over things to discuss it to do so with care, love, delicateness and information.
