Do you check cell phone messages?

>> Friday, February 19, 2010

I just checked my daughter's cell phone messages (yes, I keep track of who is texting what because I don't think a 13-year-old has any business having unsupervised texting with the potential for problems).  I figure if any of my kids don't like, they don't HAVE to have a cell phone.  They actually don't care (yet).  I'm sure the time will come when they will.  Does anybody else do that?

My daughter and stepdaughter actually texted each other about dresses this past week.  That was nice to see.  I wrote before about how my stepdaughter texted me for four hours last week and had been texting her dad more too.  Apparently, she's either missing us all a lot or something is up at home that she's not saying.  My stepdaughter told my daughter that she had sent "mom and dad pics of her dress."  She was talking about her prom dress.  That's about the only time I see her refer to me as "mom" anymore.  I was glad to see contact between them.  I've been a bit worried about my stepdaughter because of the weight loss.  I really hope that it's not an eating disorder or that she's not taking diet supplements or anything like that to make her lose that weight.

She sounded genuinely happy about seeing us next month.  It'd be nice to get them here for a few weeks this summer too assuming their mom doesn't schedule them for something every week of the summer like last summer.

Since our girls are 2 & 4, I don't have to worry about checking those kinds of things, but you can bet your butt when they are old enough I will be checking EVERYTHING. I have a friend who's 2 sons are early teens and they have Facebook accounts and are online all the time. She admitted that she doesn't know their passwords, or what their doing online. That won't be happening here. Plus who knows how things will be 10 years from now when they are teens... scary. They are a pain in the butt sometimes now, I can definetly wait for the teen years to come... hopefully they are nothing like their mother :)

A couple of my kids have facebook accounts too but I have their passwords and I check their pages constantly. Their pages are totally private and they aren't allowed to approve any friend requests until they ask me first. It also gives me access, signing in as them, to check out what their friends are doing too. There is no way they would have any internet access without me having full access and knowledge of what they are doing.
