Hi, our 12-year-old boy is a good student and an eidel boy. We try not to let our kids use our technology by themselves, and all of our tablets/computers are password protected. Recently he asked to unlock the tablet so he can look up the weather, but I have discovered that he also searched for “naked women” on my tablet while we weren’t looking for a few minutes.
Is 12 too early for the child to search for this type of stuff?
What is the right approach to discuss this with him and how to explain that this is wrong? I don’t want him to stop sharing with me.
