    How many kids born in the early 90s and 80s remember having all this...no it was go outside and play. My son and daughter will not have a phone till they reach the age they can help pay for it and their grades are good. It's called good parenting and responsibility.

    I have like no secrets on my phone, and if they find my Wattpad account, (I don’t write on there, especially not those x-reader stories) I don’t read many bad stories, so it’ll be fine. And they wouldn’t have the patience to read all the way through the Forest Fic until they get to the smut scene bcuz my parents are lazy
    I also have an aesthetic account on tiktok but who cares about that sksksk

    Kids do need privacy, especially between friends and family. Let’s say that you’re trans and you come out to one of your closest family members on text, everything goes well but then your transphobic dad wants to check your phone. That’s a HUGE danger situation cause it could involve mental and physical abuse and could cause you to break off from that trusted family member. This could happen with situations at school or family problems or even trying to tell someone how you’re feeling

  • since_the_dawn _of_time

    I think it's unfair that parents feel the need to snoop through phones you'd hope that they'd have a better understanding and trust with thier kids to know the signs that something wrong is going on otherwise kids will be kids
