If your kid has given you ZERO reason to have to check up on them, should you read their private stuff?
This couple has a 15-year-old – she’s a good kid, a great student with great grades, is active a church (is even a Youth Group leader), is responsible…so mom LeAnn doesn’t see ANY reason to spy on her kid by reading her private social media accounts. There’s no indication that she’s being bullied or influenced, and she hasn’t given them a reason to be worried.
Her dad, Michael, on the other hand, thinks that’s a naive perspective. He trusts her, but he doesn’t know all of her friends. Plus, he thinks she’s easily influenced, so if her friends get into something bad, who’s to say they won’t drag her into it? He wants to create a fake account and friend her to see what she’s getting up to.
Enter the Bert Show Judge And Jury – we’ll hear each side of the case and will give the final vote over whether or not they should check their kid’s phone!
Well, the Jury voted for mom and dad to check their kid’s phone…but to do it ABOVE BOARD. They need to talk to her and then ask to see the phone…not act shady and make a fake account.
Whelp, guess what they did? They lurked. And they found out something they didn’t like. And then they confronted their daughter (who had nothing to do with what they found). And the trust is BROKEN.
And mom is back and is SO UPSET.
