Is It Okay To Check Your Kid’s Text Messages?

It’s difficult to answer that question because it can have multiple answers. The right answer depends on your child’s age, social behavior and personality. There are cases when the honest and open relationship with your child leaves no reason to check their text messages. But there are also other situations.

Not every child is willing to share personal life details with parents. Some want to avoid judgments; the others may be too shy to express their minds to parents. Whether your child is talkative or not, you should tell them about responsible texting behavior.

Express your child that you are worried about them. Warn them that anyone can easily forward or take a screenshot of their text, to make them feel embarrassed or humiliated.

Together with your child, try to establish rules for device monitoring. Be flexible in your decisions. It is also important to insist on following the set rules. If the child feels your care, protection, and honesty, they won't be irritated by your intention to control their mobile activity.
