A viral video when a lady bumped into her mum reading her chats with her boyfriend has caused significant backlash online.
There is this current debate as to the height of trust and privacy parents should give in terms of their children’s involvement on social media platforms.
This changes according on the children’s ages, genders, upbringing, social status, friend cycle, child maturity, amount of independence, and other factors.
In a video shared online by a user who happens to be the older sister of the lady, it displayed the mother going through the WhatsApp chat conversations. The mother went through the young girl’s conversation with her boyfriend with so much focus and interest.
The mother boldly did this in the presence of her two young daughters. The girl whose phone was being investigated and searched stayed very focused and glued to the TV set.
On the other hand, the older sister did the recording but seems uneasy about the issue
Netizens aired their thoughts in the comment section.
