1 Bump

Do you check on your teens to see if they're sexting?

do you go on you child’s myspace, or email, or even their cell phone and check what they are doing? do you feel like you are violating their privacy?

  • I have 2 teenagers and 2 tweens none of them have cell phones, we have 1 laptop that can only be used when a parent is present, we have parental locks on our tv. We have strict rules on the phone and the computer.

  • I think a child does not have full privacy until they move out.

    I do keep tabs on it, that is why my daughter does not have a my space page because of the things I saw on it. Just when you think one thing, you are surprised with the other.

  • I never check! I respect my son and trust him. He's home almost every night and usually I have a house full of his friends too. My son is an amazing human being and I have a tremendous amount of love and admiration for him. He's a hard-worker (my father owns a company and he's been working for him for almost 5 years and averages $22/hr tips included) , a humanitarian (has only been in trouble twice, both for fighting & standing up to bullies picking on kids with disabilities).
