Unhappy I'm so confused, please help. - February 23rd 2009, 08:02 AM

Hi.
I'm new to this and don't really know where to post this or what to say but here goes. I've been really upset lately because i think my dad is watching porn on the internet. All the time my brother (12) and myself will walk into the room and he will quickly close the screen of his laptop. My mum has no idea as far as i know and it's really upsetting me. I can't even look at my dad without feeling awkward and Mum has started to notice the deterioration of my behavior towards him and is not happy about it at all. But i can't tell her what's really wrong...

What to do?
please help. :-(

I'm sorry you have to go through this stress. I'm here if you need to talk, k?

Your mom does need to know. This could lead to something worse, like him cheating on her, and while I really, really hope it doesn't, it could. Tell her, but make it clear that you're not positive that's what he's doing. She needs to confront him about it, and he needs to stop. It might cause some problems, but it could get a lot worse if you don't speak up. Make it clear that you don't really have any proof, but also make it clear that you suspect something bad is going on.

Hope it works out for you! Stay strong!

I was just thinking about the post i made earlier and to be honest i wasn't completely honest.... i'm sorry... the truth is that i know for a fact that he is because i've seen the screen of his laptop several times before he managed to close it, i just didn't want to admit it. Once i know for sure he knows i saw but i just played stupid and ignored it. i'm scared of what will happen to my family if i tell mum and i don't want my brother to work out what's going on.....

If you definitely saw porn on the screen, then your mom does need to know. It is scary, I understand, but it could turn into something worse. My advice is to tell your mom. This is between them, because what he's doing could hurt the family. They need to talk it out, and figure out what's going on.
Good luck! I'm here for you if you need to talk.

Hi there,

I also suggest you either talk to your dad about this, talk to your mom about it, or talk to both of them. It's not a good thing to do, especially when they have a twelve year old son in the house. Your dad should make sure what he's doing is appropriate when he is around his children.

Nat.
