You are about to view XXX! Would you like to continue?

My son, who is 11, asked me last nite when his penis will get bigger. HOW does a Mom answer this question? I did the only thing I knew to do. I googled 'puberty' and read aloud key points to him.

But it wasn't enough. "BUT WHEN WILL IT GET BIGGER?" he asked. Like an idiot, without thinking a bit, I googled something about getting a big penis.

BIG MISTAKE. Don't ever do that. At least not with a child sitting next to you. My son got an eyeful of porn the likes of which I didn't see until I was in my 20's. I quickly covered his eyes and shut off the monitor.

NOW, we all know how easy it is to pull up porn. Sometimes you don't even mean to do it. So why not WARN people when it's about to pop up? For instance, before it presents itself, why not have something come up that says:

YOU ARE ABOUT TO VIEW A SITE THAT CONTAINS NUDITY
AND GRAPHIC SEX.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO CONTINUE?
I think this is a FANTASTIC idea, don't you? What would it take to institute something like this? I'd really like some suggestions.

i absolutely agree. i thought that before you enter most sites they did have a disclaimer... but i guess with the internet, you're found to find anything. i think you can put blocks on certain searches, but lord knows you can just put in donkey and find all kinds of wierd stuff!

i think most sites have that warning when it comes to porn, at least the 'official' porn sites askin if you are over 21 to enter or something. but even on those pages, i'm sure they have some pics too, not 100% sure, when i check it out again, i'll let you know! lol... but i couldn't stop laughing cause i could picture you googling, sayin "oh shit!" then covering your sons eyes, turning off the monitor, etc lol...

I definitely agree. My kids are young, so questions like these kind of scare me. Only because, like you, I wouldn't know exactly how to answer.
