adolescence

It seems that my son has just entered adolescence recently.

This morning, I checked his game player after a while.
His game player serves playing video games, email, Internet, calling between the same gadgets, listening to music, and so on. You name it, it has it.
When I checked his records on the net, I was shocked to see a full of adult sites.
When I set up to control the Internet for my son a few years ago, he demanded to unlock it soon because he couldn't see his favorite sites relating to some playing games, not adult sites. I have sometimes checked his records. It had been no problem until last March.

I have been thinking about what my son visited the adult sites. I could control the gadget, but I thought that once he knew them, he couldn't stop it. Maybe, it is time for him to know it. However, I want to know how his friends are. Do they see the adult sites? I asked two mothers about it. One mother said that she didn't know whether or not her son saw them, but she doesn't set up to control on the Internet now. And the other mother said that her son didn't seem to see them.

However, I couldn't ignore it. When my son came home from school, I asked him whether or not he visited adult sites. He answered no. I then told him a lie that his school called me that it seemed that he often visited them, so, use caution, or he would be in trouble.
He didn't say anything after that. He left some amount of supper. The main dish was fish. He doesn't like fish. I didn't know exactly why, but he seemed to lose appetite. I felt sorry for him, so, I confessed to him that I told the lie.
I then just said to him that be careful when he uses the Internet.

After my son went to sleep, I told about it to my husband.
He said that I should set up to control it in case he is in trouble.
So, I followed him.

It seems that my son just entered adolescence recently.

This morning, I checked his game player after not having done so in a while.
His game player is really a multi entertainment system. With it, my son, plays video games, checks his email, surfs the Internet, calls between the same gadgets, listens to music, and so on. You name it, it can do it.
When I checked his browsing history, I was shocked to see it full of adult sites.
When I set up to control the Internet for my son a few years ago, he demanded that I unlock it because he couldn't see his favorite sites related to playing games, not viewing adult sites. I have sometimes checked his browsing history. It had been no problem until last March.

I have been worried that my son has been visiting adult sites. I could control the gadget, but I thought that once he had experienced them, he couldn't stop. Maybe, it is time for him to know about more mature subject matter. However, I want to know if his friends are doing the same thing. Do they visit adult sites? I asked two mothers about it. One mother said that she didn't know whether or not her son saw them, but she doesn't set up to control the Internet now. And the other mother said that her son didn't seem to see them.

He didn't say anything after that. He left some amount of supper. The main dish was fish. He didn't seem to like the fish. I didn't know exactly why, but he seemed to had lost his appetite. I felt sorry for him, so, I confessed that I had lied to him.
I then just told him to be careful when he uses the Internet.

After my son went to sleep, I told my husband about what had transpired.
He said that I should set up my son's game unit so I may control the ability for it to visit adult sites.
So, I followed his advice.

ええ?マジ?I guess he's about that age though. I was a little surprised to read this.

Re: English Corrections

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you so much for the corrections.
I was glad to learn the word, not 'record', but 'history'.

As for,
I didn't know exactly why, but he seemed to had lost his appetite.

Isn't it infinitive(to do)?

Re: No title

Hello, Always visiting.

It is difficult for me to educate my son more mature subject matter. He has learned the basis of that at school, though.
Thank you for your comment.

Answer to Sakae's question

Sakae's Question:

As for,
I didn't know exactly why, but he seemed to had lost his appetite.

Isn't it infinitive(to do)?


My Reply:

I may well be wrong on this one. I cannot see any logical reason why it should be wrong though.

My rationale:

If you merely state that ....'he had lost his appetite'...it would be correct. If you substitute 'it was apparent that he had'...for 'he seemed to had' ...it also makes sense. You were talking of a prior event to a past event. He had lost his appetite prior to supper. You were talking of realizing this at a point after supper. Therefore, he seemed (you weren't sure as to the reason at the point of discovery)...to had lost his appetite (it had already happened before the point of discovery).
He no longer suffers from a lack of appetite.

Again, I may be wrong on this one. However, I don't think so.

Actually, I would not have used such a sentence. I just wanted to use as much of your vocabulary as possible.

A better way of saying it would have been:

It seemed he had lost his appetite.
