Getting A Clue

So I watched the most fascinating story on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric tonight... The Secret Lives of Teens.

It's about parental use of technology to keep up with their kids' online lives. But they monitor their kids' online lives in secret. Really fascinating.

I can see many sides to this issue being valid... but one of them is that getting a clue about what your kids (or substitute younger sibling, nephew/niece, godchild) are doing so that you can be an effective parent.

Would you engage technology to keep up with your teens' online lives? Or do you think that is an invasion of their privacy? If you watch the story, and see what parents discover, you might have a clearer perspective on the issue.
