Okay - what would you do?
Your child leaves his phone unguarded in your vicinity. Or he leaves his Facebook open.
Do you peek??
I do. Why?
Because I soooo remember what it was like being a teenager (despite what he thinks). And I want to know what is going on in his life. It's not like he tells me everything. What I do get out of him is generally pulled (word by word) out of him.
Is it un-ethical??
Maybe a little. Maybe not.
I own the house he lives in. I pay for his tuition. I pay for his food, clothing; etc.
I have a right to know what is going on in his life. Right?
Unless I see something extremely disturbing; I don't bring it up. They are entitled to their little secrets. But anything big?!! Definitely gets my attention.
Luckily...so far....nothing big.
So really? What would you do?
