A big question parents must ask themselves is their feelings on snooping in their child’s room. Whatever you decide, be prepared to defend yourself. If you have a reason for concern, say so. And remember, it’s your house, and your primary responsibility is to the well–being of your child.
Good places to look:
- Dresser drawers, beneath or between clothes
- Desk drawers
- CD/DVD/Tape/Video cases
- Small boxes – jewelry, pencil, etc.
- Backpacks/duffle bags
- Under a bed
- In a plant, buried in the dirt
- Between books on a bookshelf
- In books with pages cut out
- Makeup cases – inside fake lipstick tubes or compacts
- Under a loose plank in floor boards
- In fake soda bottles with false bottoms
- Inside over–the–counter medicine containers (Tylenol, Advil, etc)
- Inside empty candy bags such as M&Ms or Skittles
There is a time and place for snooping.
Don’t be afraid to snoop on your kids.
