When I was about thirteen, and my family was in the process of moving from North Carolina to Texas, my mom read part of my journal. I was complaining about how I was depressed about leaving my friends and going to a new school for the second time in a year in a particular entry, and I saw her typing an e-mail to my dad that said something like, "...and Candice wrote in her diary that she feels sad about leaving." I felt incredibly disrespected and hurt.

I don't think that parents should read their kids' journals. Unless something serious seems to be going on in their kids' life. Other than that, though...
