Perhaps many of you have already heard this phrase:


Recently, there have been a couple of cases make national news. Over the weekend I listened to a mother of the latest case. Her lovely teenage daughter (age 16 maybe?) hung herself in their home and the mother found her.

I cannot imagine her pain or her daughter’s pain.

The daughter had texted a nude picture of herself to her boyfriend. They break-up and he shares the picture with other students in their school.

This post is a reminder. Parents own the cell phone, the lap top, and the television. Check them every once in a while, spontaneously. Check the texts, the phone numbers, the internet history, and even face book.

If they don’t want to show you or give you a hard time then perhaps there are things they don’t want you to know or see.

Parents have the authority, power and control, please don’t give it to the kids. 

Tonight, Bill O’Reilley on Fox News will be reporting.
