As a parent, I would definitely take issue with the words “spying on your children”. Parental monitoring of your children’s online activity is NOT spying! It is called parenting. I wisely monitor all aspects of my children’s lives–online or offline. It’s my job as a parent.
There should be a weaning of sorts as trust and relationship blossom. But I definitely think it is entirely appropriate to monitor your children’s social network profiles, pictures, conversations, etc.
I find it fascinating and a little sad that parents “wouldn’t do this”!
Hear me when I say this: Your children and teenagers are crying for good, wise, strong and stable authority in their lives. And it is your duty as their parent to provide them (in their online and offline life) the wisdom and strength they need to encounter and engage with this world. Especially as a follower of Jesus!
