Sounds like you two need to have a serious talk about privacy. and it might be a good idea to put a password on your phone for in the future

You should be able to trust your child. If you're invading their privacy, how can you expect them to go to you when they have problems?

If parents want to know they should talk to their kids not snoop through their phone. It's just like a couple, you wouldn't go through your significant others phone because you trust them. You should trust your kids, unless you've been seeing odd behavior then question your child but don't go through their phone. Just so everyone knows. I never delete my messages and let almost anyone into my phone but have a lock for obvious reasons.

um way to assume people. who says op is a "kid"? what if they are old enough to pay for their own phone, therefor giving another person zero legal rights to look through it? in my opinion, anyone jumping to the conclusion that the mom is in the right for looking at the phone is DEAD WRONG.

I disagree in so many ways. being online and texting is dangerous nowadays. IF I allow my daughter to have a phone and I am concerned about her wellbeing, it is my right as a parent to make sure she's being safe. if Amanda Todd's parents had looked into her texting/online habits she might still be alive.

@23 my mom owns the line to our phones and her mom is one of the people who is on our plan. you forget to include some of those who also have their parents living with them or vice versa who might have to deal with this

97, I agree. Some of the parents in my extended families let their kid (around 10-14) have an iPod, but they let their child know that they will be checking their messages once in awhile and are allowed to see what they're up to on it. The child has to agree to those terms if they want the iPod/iPhone. The parents usually talk about what they've been doing on their messaging, Instagram, etc, as oppose to just looking, but they have also checked the iPod/iPhone out to see. These kids all have inc

She probably wasn't sexting and even if she were, no one else has any right to go through private business like that just because they're bored or can't sleep. someone needs to buy this woman a book.

My mom actually used to do the same thing and to this day I still get paranoid about leaving my computer or phone unlocked.

Parents of young kids do it because they're trying to keep their kids safe and don't believe their children will be honest about certain situations. Many kids lie and hide depression, suicidal thoughts, bullying, or relationships they know they shouldn't be having (like with an adult or someone from the Internet they've never met). Just listing some of the reasons. Although in this case it kind of sounds like op may be an adult herself, and her mom is just crazy.

OP probably woke up to his mom in the room. In such an occasion, I wouldn't think she'd continue the act. She'd probably find another valuable pastime..

So you know how iPhones have the fingerprint unlocker option? I'm guessing she uses his finger in the middle of the night

even if he did have TouchID,it would only work with his fingerprint,unless she made a fingerprint herself

I suggest changing the lock code very often. if she constantly is asking for the code, she must be constantly trying to get into it. Also change it and don't tell her.

Next time you should either set an alarm to scare her or leave a message on your phone telling her to stop
