Collect Evidence

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.
