Do you believe that your children have a right to privacy or is it a privilege? If you feel your child is lying or messing around you have a right to snoop. But what about just randomly going into their room & looking, even if they aren't giving you a reason. My mom's friend decided to do that once. Her DD was a straight A student, active member of her church group, never gave her any trouble, but because of something she read in Dear Abby, she decided just to snoop one day & found out her DD was the school slut & did drugs. If they're not giving you a reason to doubt, maybe it's not because they're doing what they're suppose to, maybe they're just really good at hiding what they're doing. As parents don't you think it's our right to check up on them periodically? Don't you think we should be have access to their email and MySpace pages? I'm not saying we should always be in our kids business, just check up every now & again.Answer Question

It's a privilege they earn and can easily lose.
If I try to be my child's friend, don't snoop and pry, then who is to blame when she is abducted by a 40 year old man she met on the internet? Who is to blame when she turns up pregnant at 13 by the 19 year old she's been texting every night at 2am? I'm the PARENT, not the best friend or a casual acquaintance. It's my job to keep her safe and teach her to keep herself safe so when she turns 18 and DOES have a right to privacy, she won't go bonkers and get hurt.
