Porno Mom

Dear GZ Advisor,
Okay, I recently found out my mom is interested in pornographic materials and things such as that. Now I feel I can't talk to her about anything, and I can't tell anyone my problem, even my sister and my best friend. PLEASE help.

Dear Devastated,
I certainly understand why you might think you can't talk with anyone about your discovery, but the truth is you can! Although you may not feel comfortable talking to your sister or your best friend there IS someone out there who will listen, understand, and help. Make a list of all of the adults you know (relatives, teachers, counselors, neighbors, religious leaders, etc.) and identify the person (or people) you admire, trust, and feel comfortable with. Contact them and let them know you need to talk with them soon, and that it's important. Your concern is serious, and you owe it to yourself to not deal with it alone.
Best wishes --GZ Advisor

P.S. At some point you may want to include your sister in a meeting with the adult you decide to confide in. She may have discovered the same thing about your mother and it could be she's troubled and feeling alone with this knowledge, too. It would be great if you could confide in, and support, each other.
