Our expert says:
It sounds as if you are concerned about your son masturbating, but this is a very normal thing for him to be doing. There are certain things that a young person needs to keep private from their parents and this is one of them! The best option is to not mention it at all, and begin to start thinking about how you can respect his privacy.
Forcibly invading a young person's privacy will make them increasingly secretive. Pulling the covers off him was a very intrusive and inappropriate thing to do, and should never be repeated!! You say you were curious but surely you are old enough to know what the bulge under the covers was going to be?
If he suspects you disapprove this may make him feel ashamed and uncomfortable about sexual activity in the future which will make life very difficult for him.
Rule 1, knock on his door and just as important wait for a reply before walking in on him.
Your son has done nothing wrong. If he mentions it (which he is probably too embarrased to do), I suggest you apologise to him.
In this regard he is entitled to his privacy, please respect that.
