I’m a mum & check my teen son’s phone when he’s asleep, trolls all say the same thing but I payed for it so I don’t care | The Sun

BEING a parent means you're constantly learning the best way to care for your children as they get older and become more independent.

But one mum has been slammed by trolls for admitting that she checks her teen son's phone while he sleeps.

Laura Muse, 41, from the US, recently shared in a TikTok video that she often checks her 15-year-old son's phone.

In the video Laura is seen scanning the phone trying to convince herself that 'it's no big deal' as to what she is seeing on there.

Speaking to the New York Post, she said: "I own their phones, I pay for the phones. I can go through them whenever I want."

The mum revealed that she confiscates his phone when he goes to bed at 11:30pm.

Not only does she take the phone from her son and her 17-year-old daughter but she regularly goes through their social media accounts and private messages.

She added: "People might think [checking my teens’ phones] is a sign of disrespect or an invasion of their privacy, but this is how I manage my ship."
