Not unless there is an absolute reason to do it, which there hasn't been yet. My girls are 15 and 13.

Read my daughters texts 2 weeks ago. She is now very grounded. She no longer has a phone or computer. I locked and blocked everything I can. She broke all the rules. Some of the texts implied sexting....

Nipped that in the bud ASAP! She is only 13. Never imagined I would find what I did-

Good for you.  I think it is so OK, to read their texts, especially if you are suspect something is going on.    Now you know what is/was going on and can keep an eye on it.
