I agree with the others that the quicker you get him the help that he needs, the better for him and everyone that loves him. The lingering effects of molestation are terrible.

We know of someone that's brilliant and talented, but has done nothing but self-destructive things with his life and says that the reason that he thinks so very little of himself is because he was molested at a young age by a close family friend and he took his family's continued association with the man that molested him as a betrayal even though they knew nothing about it. He said that their high regard of his molester made him feel that if he reported the abuse that they might not believe him. I wonder what wonderful things this man could have accomplished if he had gotten some help early in his life.

Talk to your son about what it's for and why. If all you tell him is that he's bad, he won't get a grip.

I hope you have a strong, decent male around your son at all times. They desperately need to model on someone. Much more so than girls in my opinion.

I also keep the same view on this serious matter.
