Children and privacy

This includes 'children' up to the age of high school graduation.

Do you believe that privacy is a right or a privilege?

I am a believer that is is a privelege and if they want that privelege, they must earn it and up to the point that they are living on their own, privacy can be taken away.

  • I also agree. Other than privacy in the bathroom and getting dressed, privacy in other areas is a privilege. As parents, it's our right to know what's going on with our children both at home and in school, who their friends are, and what they're doing on a daily basis.

  • I think it depends on the age. At a young age they really have no right to privacy. By the time they get to around 17 though I do think we need to give them some. They are almost adults and going into the world soon and need to learn to handle their own problems with not much intervention from us parents.
