    Sounds like you handled it well. You are about to enter the Twilight Zone…

    One thing I learned the hard way – don’t let people tell you that your kids have “privacy rights” that prevent you from finding out what is really going on in their lives. There has to be some privacy – probably more so when it comes to a son than a daughter from the mom side of things – but you HAVE to know what your kids are doing. It’s your job. I recently read about a study that showed the brain isn’t physically capable of mature decisions until somewhere around the age of 24 or 25. Being that my youngest is now over 24, that’s a big “phew” for me!

    I agree completely with ND. Sometimes, you have to snoop. I know how mortified and furious I was when my mom snooped, BUT…
    I also recall exactly what I was doing that prompted her to snoop, too.
    (Which is not saying that ‘shua is doing anything, just that you as the parent have the right, nay, the obligation to snoop.)
