    I think only if I thought something was up... But other than that probably not.

    As an adult, I keep a journal.  I would not be happy at all if someone read it.  Therefore I will not read my teens.

    Absolutely not! My mom used to read mine. She had no concept of privacy & boundaries. I would never do that to my daughters.

    Unless it was a drastic situation I would never breach a persons privacy that way.

    My son doesn't keep a diary -- but I do have the password to his FB, although I haven't used it in years.  And I routinely check the history of his computer.  (Which, btw, I just checked yesterday and found more porn than you would see at a pimps & hos convention).

    My youngest son brings his too me all the time. My oldest I respect his journal.

    I have encouraged them to write journals since they were 2 years old. They see me writing in one all the time. We set aside time 2-3 times a week to write in our journals. Even if it's only our favorite poem, what happened today, a drawing, etc.

    The only way I would snoop into my kids journals/diaries without them knowing is if I suspected something.

    No. No matter what, every person has a right to private thoughts and opinions. Reading a teens diary is so invasive. They need a place where they can say anything without fear of being judged, ridiculed or get in trouble. A diary is a great place to let feelings out a get a better understanding of things in one's life. Now, let me clarify, if my child was going to hell in a hand basket and I felt that he/she was in serious truble, then yes, I would read.
