Teen Son
Hi
My son has just turned 14. He had a sleepover at his cousins house and i was told by his cousin that my son has been "humping" him. My son says that he cannot recall this as he might have done it in his sleep. How do i handle this situation?Should i seek proffessional help for him?
Thanks

If your son cannot recall it, then it is worth giving him the benefit of the doubt. you dont say how old his cousin is?

Let him know that this kind of thing can make others uncomfortable but it does not sound from your description that he was openly trying to abuse his cousin. However, you do not really provide much information.

It is imortant that he understands that it is very normal to have sexual feelings at his age, but that his actions need to be appropriate ones.
