In todays world of hyper connectivity and easy access to literally everything through the internet, I believe that it is important for parents to monitor their children, at least while they are still young enough to not know how to protect themselves from everything that they can be exposed to. I believe that this monitoring should be done in stages, first, the parents should pay close attention to what the child is doing in both real life and on the internet from when they are born to around about 12-13. Then, the parent should start to ease of the monitoring and just require some checks some of the time. Eventually, around 15-16, the parent should only have to ask "Hey, are you doing something you aren't supposed to?". Once the child is an adult, I believe that the parents immediately cease having any and all rights to "spy" on their child.
