Do you snoop?

120406-computer-tease.photoblog500
Okay parents.  Do you snoop in your kids phones, computer, accounts, diaries?  Tell me the truth.  Are you a better parent for it or do you think that they deserve their privacy?  What if reading something makes you mad or realize you kids hate you.  What if reading something you find out you kid is having sex at an early age.  So tell me you feeling about snooping and keeping an eye on your kids.  I have complete control over my kids Facebook.  I don’t usually snoop on them but if something flags me I have no problem checking out messages or posts that she puts up. Besides the fact I found out she publicly posted the home number which made me mad.  I also found out she doesn’t want to go to the dance on Friday.  She doesn’t like the dress she has to choose from.  Her niece gave her a dress and it makes her look older.  As in 17 and she is only 14. I don’t think she needs to be parading around with her tatas half hanging out.  That’s my opinion.  I don’t think she need to advertising so young do you.  Okay so my dress she hates.  I told her all she had to do was state that she hated it.  Even though I think it looks great on her.  I do not think it’s out dated.  I am not a complete fashion moron.  Though I know it’s not black and no her boobs won’t show.  It does show of her figure nicely without shouting HOOTCHIE.  I mean come on.  My  other niece is posting pics of herself in her bra.  Her mom thought it was great for her boy friends to spend the night.  Um not this mom.  I am her mom not her friend.  But it still hurts that she can say some really hurtful things about me.  Things I wasn’t suppose to see.  But thing I can’t unsee.  I know if my mom read my diary she would FREAK out and probably cry.  But in today’s day an age there is sexing and Facebooking. Its not like a diary where it’s just your thoughts that should remain private.  You have to worry about drugs, sex and suicide.  Ugh…I wish this parenting was over with…some days it truly sucks.  So tell me your thoughts?  Am I prying too much?

I check my daughter's facebook all the time. I also have seen many I hate my mom notes scattered across her room. I don't feel guilty about it at all.

The dress thing, when my kid went to her Valentine's dance I was shocked by the things some of the girls (even little kids) were wearing. What is wrong with parents these days?

No, you are not spying too much. I wish I had done more... things may have worked out differently for my now 26 y/o daughter.

Yes all of the above! It's my job,I have warned them that they live in my house and thusly have no expectation of privacy... unless they want to start paying me rent! Hell my kids are 18 and 17 right now and I still would go through their things... if they didn't already tell me more than I wanted to know now ;-)

I don't call it snooping. It is called being a good parent. I have the log-in to all three of my girls FB accounts snd emails and I go on them regularly. If they are doing something wrong or someone is saying something wrong to them I confront it. Normally, they tell me anyway. I know what all my girls are doing at all times which is why they are all good kids. If everyone did it, our world would be a better place left with fewer teen pregnancies, suicides, drug addicts and murderers than there are today. MHO.

I always gave my girls privacy unless my "you're behaving strangely" alarms went off or their grades shot into the pooper. Then it was my responsibility to make sure things were kosher.
