When this mom finds explicit porn on her computer, she realises that her 15-year-old son has been browsing some very explicit sites.  Shaken, she seeks advice on how to deal with the situation.

Speaking to a psychologist, she discovers that it's not unusual for teenaged boys to be preoccupied with pornography. The psychologist adds that the real problem with over-exposure to online porn sites is that boys are often left believing that sex is a purely recreational activity that doesn't include love or affection.

Read how this mom has learnt to deal with the sensitive subject of teen boys and porn - it's happening wherever teens and technology meet without supervision.
