Thank you so much for the advice it got us through the day for now. I do have some options to consider and the guidance has been great.  
I just talked to him he said he knew it was bad, he admitted it was not an accident. I told him exactly what was advised in this thread. He told me that kids at school think it is cool. I asked who told him that  and he gave a few names. Not sure what to do at this point, do I go to the teacher? Or what if he is using other kids as a scapegoat. This is a sensitive subject because both my x-husband and my sons grandfather on his dads side both have porn problems. During...
How do I punish I don't know what to say. My sister sent us her old mac for my son a few years ago, I made the mistake of placing the computer in his room this year since he is in a 4th grade school program embraces technology. Well he heard me walking down the hall this am to fetch him for school and I found him standing in of the computer he had the computer on sleep mode (macs have a sleep mode button) almost like he new he was looking at something inappropriate but...
 I mean no Dad does not have the authority and he will be out of town at the time. We made arrangments for our son to be in my care while dad is out of town. Dad impulsively changed his mind at the last second.
Yes I do have a couple of days I was also thinking about taking Friday off and not sending him to school that day. It is a halfday anyway but it also makes me look like I dont care about keeping our son in school either.   I am defiantly going to take both your advice and warn the school. Also I will call the airlines, hopefully they will release that information to me.  
So Dad and I have joint custody but I am the primary parent. We have been working things out and agree on most of everything. Well dad called me and told me that he will be going out of town on a business trip. So I made arrangements for our son to be cared for by friends on the evenings that he is with dad while dad is out of town ( I am a working mother on those evenings). Dad has our son on Monday and Tuesday evening I have him the rest of the time. Dad and I agreed...

yes, i think it is ok too. We dont have a walkie talkie but that is a really good idea, I will buy one. The park is family oriented and not many teens hang out there. Since it near a busy street it not quite that discreet. I think im going to have a talk with him about the rules send him with my phone number in his pocket and tell him to return back at a certain time, he has a watch. If he proves that he is responsible than we might do this more often. I also will probably...
My almost 7 year old wants me to give him a little more independence. He is an only child and I work from home, I don't make enough to afford childcare or a summer camp. So of course he is bored out of his mind. About a block or two away is a park where all his school friends play at. All his school friends also live on the street next to the park. He wants me to let him ride his bike to the park and play with his friends unsupervised. We live in the city and the...
So because of the current economic conditions I was recently let go from my full time job. My entire department was let go yesterday and yes I am still trying to recover. Anyway I have been thinking that I really need to try to sacrifice for my son and try to work from home. So I have been hitting up all the job sites looking for stay at home work. It seems that everything out there is such a scam. I have a realestate license but I am afraid to go full commission because...
