Before deciding to spy on your kids, it is best to talk to them to get an understanding of what is going on in their lives. Ask questions about friends, after school activities and about their possible love interests and see if you can get answers.

If parents can allow their children a bit of freedom to hang out with friends and not nag over every detail then children might not rebel as much. When parents give their children a bit of space they learn to trust their parent.

Two more hard goodbyes to express are those at the time of a divorce (or an intimate relationship), and also when your children grow up and get married and you say your goodbyes and wish them well in their new lives. That is a bitter sweet goodbye because as parents it is our goal to raise our children to be independent and be able to leave home to start on their own journey.

However, if the parents do not get along well enough to talk about the kids, splitting the child’s time between them may not be practical. After all, the parents will have to share information about the child’s welfare to make his/her adjustment to constant change comfortable. Split custody may work for some kids.
