Q:

What do we do about a 13 yr old boy who keeps watching porn?  

He rented 2 movies off cable and snuck his stepdad's cell phone and was porn surfing.

What the Expert Says:

while curiosity about sexual practices is normal for a 13 year old, I would confront him with the fact that you don't want him doing this.  Put parental controls on the computer and tv, make sure he does not have a phone or laptop in his room, and keep what you have with electronics in a public area of the house.  it is also worthwhile to check the computer history from time to time. Remind him that this exploits children and participants and that pornography often has a special police unit at the other end and could, in fact, entrap his parents since they own the electronics.  

Not abnormal or unusual but keep checking.
