    OK long story cut short: a long time ago (i'm talking about months) I started noticing a curious habit in my dad. Everytime he used the computer and I walked past the room where he was, or got into the room to get something, he'd suddenly turn off the monitor, or he'd directly turn off the computer. At first I thought that maybe the computer had crashed or something, so I asked him once why he'd do that, and he said "it crashed". This seemed fine to be but then I was like "hold on, this computer doesn't crash very often".

    I left things as they were for a while but now I have discovered something else. My dad goes into chat rooms way too often. And I'm talking about sex chat rooms (I've seen them and 80% of people who go there just want to meet other people). Also, and I don't whether this has got anything to do with this problem, but over the past few months my dad has become increasingly paranoid about me using the computer, he doesn't want for me to stay on the computer at night, when all I do is play or chat with my friends, or use facebook.

    Is it normal that married men with children watch porn/go to chat rooms? What should I do? I would have never thought that my dad would do something like this, coz for example when we are watching TV he does the zapping, and whenever he sees a movie or something which has kisses or sex he immediately changes the channel... and it's quite annoying. I'm not 11 anymore.

    Thanks.

    Just cause he's old. He's still a bloke.

    Yes, he's probably watching porn, and yes, it's really really EEEUWWW but you can't do anything about it. Just let him get on with his gross habit.

    Haha my dad does the whole 'turning off the screen' thing and i know 100% he watches porn.

    It freaks me out that he does it when i'm the only person home...

    But i would be more freaked out if my parents still had sex sooo:p:

    Uh oh, someone's told daddy's little secret to the whole world :no: He won't be too pleased :awesome:

    Maybe he's just got a high sex drive and isn't getting enough from your mum? :dontknow: The chat rooms sound pretty disturbing though...

    Unless it's child porn, it's not like he's breaking any laws. If that's his cup of tea, leave him to it IMO.

    Why on Earth would you want to get at all involved in your dad's porn-watching?

    I don't know, I just don't like it, it feels as if he were "cheating" on my mum. I know it sounds stupid but that's how it seems to me

    How about you bring it up at dinner one night? Possibly over the table just suggest a few decent sites and see his reaction?
