13 yr old DD and privacy/room

Posted by   + Show Post

ok, we've all been this age, tho these days 13 is the new 16 it seems. What are your views on going into thier rooms? I go in there, to search for things of mine she borrows and soemtimes I tidy a bit, clearing out the empty bottles for recycling, opening her window on nice days,leaving mail or little things I ight get her at the store....in my eyes, I have the right to go in there..it IS my house and she is still 13.  she got irked at me yesterday for going in there and "moving her stuff" (I moved the stuff on the bed cuz the dog came in and jumped up on the bed so I moved it to the side). I had also hung up in my hallway a cool piece of artwork she had on her bed, which she adamantly took down because "she didnt like it"...(wth? she never used to mind that before!)

 Any advice? input?

I don't believe in touching my kids stuff...They don't care if I go in their room...None of us have any secrets from each other...But my mother could not stay out of my stuff to save her life and it drove me INSAINE!!!  So I won't do it to mine...they do their own cleaning and laundry...
