13 yr. old son hiding sisters panties, and wearing?
I have found my teen son twice now with his sisters (12 yrs. old) panties hidden in his room. The first time they were wet, and he had cut a hold in the area where his ..... would be. Last night, I found about 4 pairs under his pillow. I was horrified, and asked what he was doing with them, in a calm, concerned tone. He was very embarrassed and did not want to talk about it. He finally told me that he was wearing them. I have never heard of this, and have no idea why he is doing this? I know that he is going through puberty, and is masterbating. Just because of the locked door occasionally, and him taking a shower at random times in the middle of the day. I have always been open about sex, and being comfortable with his body, and his sisters. I'm a single mother, and his father has had pretty much nothing to do with him. I know that has hurt him, and had an effect on him. I'm concerned that this is a sign that something is seriously wrong with him, psychologically. I could care less if he is gay, trans, etc. I would love him no matter what! I just don't want him to be suffering in silence, if he is having confusing feelings about his body, or sex. Any advice would help with how to proceed. I don't want him to feel ashamed about himself. I want to handle this the best way possible, but am very confused as to why he is doing this. I don't think him taking his sisters panties has anything to do with his sister. I think it's probably because he doesn't have access to panties other than his sisters. Thank you very much for any help you have to offer!
