I trust and respect my kid and my kid trusts and respects me so there is no need to SPY on my kid.
When I was young, my very insecure and foolish parents lost my respect and trust very early on so I began living a double life right under their ignorant noses. I suppose they wanted to read my private messages but I kept things well hidden from them since there simply was no trust there thanks to their foolishness - not mine. So, I have made an effort to retain the love, respect and TRUST that has always been between my kid and me so that my kid is not forced to go behind my back to live a sneaky, double life like I had to when I was young. It's a lot better to have trust and respect in a family than the sneaky, fearful and double life I had to live back then.

choose happiness

No I don't. I also don't read my partners txts.

I don't believe in spying on people, paranoia is not something to aspire to.

Far better to build strong, respectful, open and honest relationships so there is no need to spy.
