As a mother myself I am totally in favour of searching through your child's belongings,phone history, internet browsing history, MySpace and so on in order to make sure that your child is safe.
There are so many parents today who don't give a damn what there children are getting up too.
The internet is fast becoming a favourite place for peadophiles to seek out children, Places like MySpace are perfect for these people. There are so many weirdo's out there lurking around looking for children.
If my child is talking too strangers on the internet I want to know about it.

If my child had a mobile I'd want to make sure they werent talking to some perv they met on myspace and such sites!

I understand a child should have some privacy but that comes with age and trust,
I will do anything I can too protect my child from the dangerous world we live in :)
Your mother is probably trying to do the same. This shows she actually loves and cares about you.

"i understand that but don't you think theres a limit?"

Is that it?...

Well in answer, yes there is a limit, I think it would be going too far if your mother inspected your underwear in a bid to find out if your having underage sex for instance.. *ewww*
But a paedophile has no limit when it comes to getting a child to molest, they will try anything.
Often (not always) a parent knows best, Sometimes they have to do things that seem unfair but almost always they have your best interest's at heart.

"i know that

that's not ok"

There are many weirdo's on myspace who pretend to be someone they are not, for example many perv's targeting young girls often pretend to be young boys even though they are actually adult men, maybe your mam was just checking your friend is who he says he is, again it's just about protecting you.

Or maybe your mam was just trying to be "cool" and "down with the kids" lol
Or maybe she's lonely and is just trying to get closer to you by showing an interest in things that your into.

Like I've said before I'm sure your mam is just looking out for you, yes she might be a pain in the behind and seem unfair at times but she loves you all the same and I'm sure you love her.

If this is something that's really bothering you why not try and talk to her about it?, Explain that you understand that she is just making sure your not doing things you shouldn't but explain you would like a bit more privacy.
Reassure her your ok and maybe she will back of a bit.

Hope things work out :)

Why do I feel like an agony aunt right now...

Lol

If you were a good parent then you wouldn't have to search through your childs private stuff to know what he/she was up to. A good parent would've already imparted the wisdom and knowledge to her child to be able to trust him/her. I'm not saying that good parents don't hve kids that go bad, all I'm saying is that if a mother is doing her job then she wouldn't have to worry about her child screwing up. Besides, as a teenager with some disturbed friends, I know that action like invasion of personal privacy in most cases only serves to push the child away from his/her parents and create a wall between the two. If the parents would just give the children more space, and trust their kids, we'd actually have alot less problems.

"Sane parents must have the right to make their own decisions on parental care."

If that is true, the child has no rights. If the child has rights it is false. Rights are absolute and cannot be abrogated in such a manner. The question then is when the child acquires rights, i.e. when it acquires the trait known as "Reason." Science is still out on that one, but it's a whole lot earlier than 18, I guarantee it :D

Reasons for voting decision: CON fails to provide any real argument for his position, PRO though she did contradict herself actually provided some justification for parental surveillance. Conduct tied, Pro gets spelling and grammar for obvious reasons, sources tied.
