Are you going to, or have you????
I wouldn't do it.
I would have been devastated if my parents had read my journals. Hell, I'd still be devastated if my husband read my journals. It's a huge violation of privacy.
i dont know. it would have to be a really extreme situation. i really value trust, and i really believe that my kids are their own persons, and not just an extension of me. it really would have to be an extreme situation. like so bad that i wouldnt even feel guilty about doing it...
I would if I thought they were hiding something. If not I would let them have thier privacy.
If my radar is pinging, yeah, I will read anything I need to read.
I prefer it when I know everything is ok. And I do know. I always know. I can't figure out why the kids don't know that I am ALWAYS going to know what they are doing, or at least, if they are doing something they should not be doing. It's a Mom thing.
i have because my teen was acting out and i wanted to know wtf was going on .
No. That is awful. As a parent thinking about it, its still awful. If you don't trust your kid enough to not read their diaires, you have problems.
