Inspired by Kay41: If you feel that parents should be legally responsible for their child's activity on social media, do you believe the parents should require full access to the social account(s)?

The rule in my house is that I must have your passwords. I've never used them other than to make sure they gave me the right ones. But they know I can.

Yes....up to age 17-18. That doesn't mean they need to snoop. But, parents should have access in case legitimate concerns arise.

It doesn't mean they should use it, necessarily, but have it for sure. It's like the lock that should never be on their minor kids' bedroom doors.

The liberal mentality of let people do whatever they want and make other people pay the consequences isn't good for anybody.

That should be a given. I had all passwords on my kids accounts until the older two turned 18. If they wanted to have a private conversation, they had to use the phone or do it the old fashioned way...pass notes!

My wife and I had their passwords also and regularly quizzed them on what they revealed to the world. We also checked their page and who they help as friends. That is a big indicator.

I'm am all about giving my kids all the trust and privacy in the world, unless they do something to violate that trust

Exactly, but if you were to be held legally responsible for their actions - wouldn't you want to be certain you're not going to end up punished?
I don't like the idea to begin with...

IF they should be held legally responsible, but I don't think they should be.

What about if their child vandalized a store?

Understood. That was the premise of the question.
