Question: 

This is not an affair related question, but something we need help with. Our 13 year old nephew (we are raising him) we think is masturbating on a regular bases. Also it is possible that he has accessed porn from one of the computers. My husband has tried to talk to him, but he denies that he is doing anything and blamed the stuff on the computer on a friend. We don't want to "shame" him. We have tried to explain things about what he is feeling and what is natural and things like that. I guess we are just TERRIFIED that handling this WRONG, I guess especially after hearing some guys stories and the fall out that can happen. We are just looking for information. We have looked at the book Every Mans battle about talking to your son....But are not sure if that is correct. HELP PLEASE. We are sure we are not the only parents having issues in this area.
