Adult mommy text chat
So imagine your parents read text messages of people who confide in you with things they do not openly speak about just to have your parents read through those texts and know everything and will look at them in a different perspective.Reason 2 being its basically the one way you could permanently lose your childs trust and they probably wont tell you anything about their lives anymore.If you wouldn’t listen to every conversation your kid has, then you shouldn’t be going through there messages.
I have a lot of friends who are not in the best mental state and have no other way but to communicate over the phone.As I read through all the teenagers' answers, I can clearly see how they all feel violated. I grew up through young adulthood in the age of My Space and early rendetions of Facebook. A friend can forward a message/photo to other people, your device can be lost or stolen, then compromised, or you could have snoopy friends or family members.As all of us adults have finally come to learn, social media is by no means private. All the teens are right that privacy is very important, but what they don't realize is their phones just aren't private; just like social media isn't.The ideal time to establish rules around how the phone will be monitored is at the very beginning, when you give it to your kid.
It's easier to relax your rules as you go along, rather than suddenly introduce new ones. If your kids recoil in horror, ask why they don't want you to see them -- it's very likely that there's nothing bad.
The most important thing is that you discuss responsible texting behavior.
