    I'm scared that my mum has another life online. So is my brother, and my sister for that matter.

    She last year ended her marriage of over 25 years. She's become fixated with her laptop of late, and has become very secretive over people looking at what she's doing on it.

    What is she up to? Does anybody else have this problem? Is this typical of single mums of a certain age?

    She probably is. Is that so bad?

    Sort of had a similar thing happen with my Dad, in the end me and my brothers just asked him. Feel free to PM me if you'd like to discuss further, it can be difficult accepting that your parent is moving on from your other parent but its best to be open with them.
