I will take a look at their social media pages, but I rarely go through text messages. I usually don't need to.

My DD doesn't have any social media accts. I do check her text messages, iPod and iPad to make sure there's no crazy apps.

 No I don't. They have never given me a reason to.

None of my kids have phones yet. But as far as checking their texts.. do you go so far as comparing what they have in their phone to the bill? Because deleting texts isnt hard, and using apps to sneak around things isn't either. IMHO and experience as a sneaky teen.. its not whats there to see thats the problem.

I'm friends with mine as well but you can't see who is sending them messages or if someone is sending them hateful or nasty messages
You can't really think that your kids tell you everything

Because we talk...I ask them if I want to know something and they will tell me.
