We Have a MAJOR Situation Here...

Not quite sure where to begin with this one, but it is very important to share this for all parents of hormonal eleven year old boys who surf the internet. Being the naive idiot I am, I still consider my son a baby. He is not. Lately, he's been surfing the net for War Games, or so I thought. Luckily, my husband monitors Jordan's downloading action, and he's been downloading a little too much action, apparently.

Jordan's computer broke, as I've mentioned, and every day he's been allowed to use mine to play his War Games, my new screensaver is a lovely shot of Warplanes. Luca told Jordan that he could only ask us to download programs and not to do it himself. Well, yesterday when he was home sick from school and I was preparing lunch, he had himself a nice little time Google Searching. Being the clueless (semi-clueless)navigator he is, he left the list of his google searches on the toolbar and Luca noticed he was searching "Sesse," "Sex" and "Sexy." He must have struck gold because when Luca went to look at Jordan's file, he found a series of pornographic photos and videos of a female porn star named "Aria Guerra" (I will provide NO links to this woman). "Guerra" in Italian is "War" so he must have stumbled upon her in his research of games and felt the need to satisfy his curiosity.

Hmm. Two years ago he was dreaming of boobs, Uncle Scrooge and Ilaria. His first day of Middle School he came home shocked because there were students kissing in the halls. And, we do live in Italy where all you see are T and A on the TV. What's a boy to do? When my husband was a child, magazines circulated the middle schools. Now, at least in Italy, mini cellphone videos of lewd behavior get passed through the classes and it is a MAJOR problem. And, my eleven year old innocent angel is downloading pornographic material from MY computer. Where the hell was I??? Luckily, my husband caught this one.

Why am I sharing this "embarassing moment" that my mom WILL call and ream me out about? So that YOU monitor YOUR children because one just never knows. All I can say is "Like Father Like Son." *smile*
PS. I did receive a very interesting email from a very hot naked guitar playing stallion. rotfl


Anonymous said... son is also 11 years old and god only knows how much he knows that he is not sharing with me :o( I am sure he knows a lot...

But I do know that he already saw x-rated movies because he had a sleepover at a friend's house whose father had a collection of x-rated movies... a few years ago. It was hard for me to deal with it when I found out about it, since he was 7 or 8 years old at that time and he told me that.

Well, welcome to real life of preteen kids... that kissing, touching, etc., are taking on a different level now.

I just asked my son if he witnessed any "making out" at his elementary school and he said yup, during the recess, when the adults were not looking.

Feel fortunate. My daughter was an early reader in spite of her hearing loss, and at age 5 (YES FIVE) she Googled "boys peepee". She got an eyeful let me tell you. I didn't know she even knew how to search the net, much less the pornographic stuff. Sheesh.

I remember when I was younger I went to go search for "lace" because I had to get some to create this artsy fartsy thing out of a stocking.

Anyhoo, a little side tracked :) Needless to say, I had playboy bunnies plastered all over my "fathers" computer. What an embarrassing moment!
