Is It OK to Secretly Snoop on Our Kids? (Part 2)

Posted by   + Show Post

We're always scared about what our kids might be sharing on social media and whether they're making healthy choices when we're not around. In this episode, Parenting Expert and Life Coach Harriet Cole shows us how social media can be a useful tool for parents, even when our kids de-friend us!

It's Microsoft's own parental control. So if you have that you can sign up to receive those emails.

My dd has a laptop and I get weekly emails that show me every site she was on, every site she tried that was blocked, every search, even partial words. Plus we look through her laptop and get all her passwords. She knows we do this, no secrets here.

 do you know how I can sign up for the e-mail thing?

My kids aren't old enough to require snooping, but I have a great-niece who is headed for trouble (both of her parents are, well... don't get me started). She visited me over xmas and forgot to log out of her Twitter account and you can BET I am snooping on her! (I can still access my account from a different browser, so it works!! :))

The hard part is how to feed the necessary info to someone who can help (she lives in a different city) without giving away how I'm getting the info.

I'm so scared for her!!
