i am against the motion..i feel that our parents are the one who held our hands and brought us up therefore they should have complete right to know what is happening in their ward's life..they should be aware of every single thing that happens in their ward's life

Everyone has a right to privacy, parents can't know everything even if that wasn't intrusive and offending. If parents "held their child's hand" as you said and raised them properly, they should trust them well enough to know they wil do what they should, and nothing they shouldn't.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

a "child" refers to an entity "below" and i repeat "below" the age of "full development"..therefore a child is not capable of understanding the correct meaning of "privacy"..he/she may take it as an opportunity to do whatever she feels like irrespective of any limits and thoughts of their society or parents..let me make this clear parent is just nit any random person in one's life .it is a guarding body or a guardian..a child does not know the difference between good and evil the difference between truth and lie..therefore a child's right to privacy should not be valued above a parent's right to know

So tell me, Mr. Psychologist-That-Might-Break-All-Records-And-Get-Himself-A-Nobel-Prize, at what age does a person reach "full development"?

I am a children and I WANT MY PRIVACY!!!!!
I agree that parents are allowed to know some of the time, but not excessively. If they are really concerned, they should take away and/or hide things like magazines and video games and block TV channels and websites! It's not that hard!!!!

"If you're barely skilled in English, why post on a predominantly English debate site, where one's mastery of language is very important."

Under the naive mindset that there will MOST likely be someone here who will take this debate and is more interested in having an enlightening discussion than a verbal joust where the goal is nothing more than to win at all cost. At least for the case of the former, such an opponent would be more understanding of language handicaps (thus more willing to work with), whereas in the case of the latter, an opponent would use such handicaps to his/her advantage.
