bull. You have to be the parent and not their friend. I was obviously a teen and am not raising one, no where near the same.

If I suspect something is going on, yes.

I won't lie it would be tempting. But unless I feel there is a real reason, no I wouldnt

I don't think I would. In the words of jamie lee curtis in freaky Friday, if they were gonna do something they would be out there doing it, not writing about it in their journal.

Not unless I suspected something and she was getting into trouble and owuldn't talk to me about what was going on.

My mom did it too me, and went on to read it out loud to her boyfriend of the month and my brothers. I was humliated, and have never trusted her again. I still resent it, and it was 14 years ago.

 Because last time i checked my kids were not paying rent or buying food. And if you are a child i have the right to know who your freinds are and who there parents are and u betta not be doing no stupid shit netiher. I gave you life and i can easily take it away too. wanna call cps? well then damn it let me dial da damn number for you.   thats why.

Thanks for the sympathy. It was awful.

That's why I couldn't do that to my own daughter. I want her to know I trust her. And unless she's doing something to make me doubt that trust I wouldn't want to risk it.

Both my kids have journals and I have skimmed through them. Not because I thought anything was going on with them, but just to make sure there wasn't. I don't go looking for it but sometimes, if I'm in their rooms getting laundry or something and it's laying out, I will look through it.

yeah, having that trust violated is hard. i KNOW my mom read mine, and i know that my grandmother did too (she would break into our house and go through EVERYTHING), but at least they tried to be sneaky about it you know? they didnt blatantly rub it in my face, and they didnt try to humilate me, but it still made it difficult. i knew that i couldnt even write down what i was acutally going through. it was never the full truth.
