If the child lives at home, yes, under the parents roof, their rules, their laws. If one
raises their children right from birth, the child will not be untrustworthy and their
will be no good reason to spy. But if a child is willful, and doesn't listen to the rules
then a parent not only has the right, but the responsiblity to spy. Parents are resp-
ible for their children both morally and finacillay. if a child ends up in trouble or on
the wrong side of the law, guess who pays? Yes they have that right.
