Do you do this?

Do you continue to check your pre-teen or teenager's cell phone when you have HAD a reason to check it before? How long did you keep checking it?

  • Pre-teen always! Teen no. I was lucky though. My oldest dd always left notes laying around for me to find and she would basically bust herself. She was also a terrible liar.

  • Until you build the trust again, then I would just do it every so often that way if something is going on you don't miss it.

    I would say until they move out. LOL< It is my house my rules.

    I say be involved but try to get them to come too you , so you don't have to snoop on them. :) My daughter is getting there, thank goodness.
