Never Underestimate The Power Of A Parent
Warning, there may be explicit content in this post.
I don’t give my son enough credit; he just turned, 18, and will be graduating high school this year. He has a severe learning disability and with that he’s a bit immature. So, when he comes out with an age appropriate statement or comments on an adult situation it brings me back to reality that he is, 18.
Last year he announced at the dinner table that he watches porn on the Internet. Hm…Should, I be concerned? Well, he is, 17, and physically mature and that’s what they do right, look at porn and do lonely man things? Ewe, I can’t even think about it.
So, recently we put the family computer in his bedroom and turned the computer room into a man cave. I wanted to do this last year but my husband didn’t think it would be a good idea, putting the computer in my son’s room. A few months ago we were forced into making this happen, well because, a) I was in need of space for myself and b) it made more sense for him to have a room of his own, instead of me, because women need more space than men and this way I would have free roam of the whole house while he’s locked away in a single room.
This morning while, I was utilizing my laptop my husband impatiently used my sons computer and while snooping into his pics he found a small white box with a very small black dot in the center. If it was me, I would have just thought my son didn’t know what he was doing but my husband has more faith in him and decided to investigate more. He enlarged the white box and the small dot got bigger, so he enlarged it some more and enlarged it even more and tucked away so neatly in this small white box was this…
…a whole slew of them, big ones little one and every size in between. He thinks he’s so smart but as parents, we always have to be one step ahead, so this is what my husband did to all the pictures.
It won’t stop him but at least he’ll know he’s being watched. Mission accomplished.
