Are you going to, or have you????
I never would. My mom used to do that to me and I have a really hard time with trust, privacy issues, and writing or talking about my problems/emotions. It was the first promise I made to myself when I had kids, to never ever read their personal diary.
I would absolutely read it.
I have a son so i don't think it is that common in boys. If he decides to keep a journal of sorts, then no i would never disrespect him by doing that. My mother read my diary and photocopied pages she found..."interesting" i suppose. I had a very hard time as a teenager and keeping a journal and writing poetry helped me cope. She completely broke our trust and i have never wrote a poem or made another journal again. I completely disagree with it unless you are looking for a surefire way to make your teenager never want to talk to you about anything. In that case go ahead.
Really? Why is that?
Quoting babyblue415: i believe as long as you are under the age of 15 you have no privacy

Quoting 3earthangels:I would, especially if I suspected something was up.
