Q: My mom and I don't communicate well. If she thinks I'm up to something, she starts snooping. I think if she has something to ask me, she should come to me directly instead of going through my property. Jason Elsmore, Lake City, Minn. Page: Parents should not snoop. They should communicate with their child and be upfront when they have a concern regarding trust. A routine search of a child's room may be appropriate when valid reasons are demonstrated, but not otherwise. The Winshlps: Everyone needs privacy, and no one likes to have it invaded. Parents need to listen uncritically to find out the kinds of people their kids are becoming, what interests them and how they learn best. Try writing to your mom to see if you can improve communication with her. It takes two people to build better communication. Pipher: How much privacy a teen should have vs. how much information parents need is a complex issue. Teens need privacy, but families have a right to know what is happening to one another. Maybe you could call a family meeting and discuss this problem from everyone's point of view. If you want your mother to snoop less, try this: Bring more friends to meet her, tell her where you're going and what you're doing, confide in her, help around the house, and even show some interest in her life, She'll respect that kind of mature behavior from you. Q: I'm a single parent of an 11-year-old daughter and 14-year-old son. Until this year, my son was active in little League baseball. But he broke both his arms, became depressed and lost interest in sports and school. He began pushing his curfew and skipping his check-in times during the day. He accuses me of not trusting him. I tell him I want him to grow up — not die In the street from being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Tracy Rascon, San Bernardino, Calif. The Wlnshlp*: The wonderful thing Jason Eltroore, 17 (stttmg), brother Matt, mom Janet and stepdad Jim Baker about you, Tracy, is that you are honestly trying and learning with your son. Most parents feel they're barely keeping up as their kids push for greater freedoms. Tell your son how much you care for and respect him. Pay attention to the tunes he acts responsibly and point out his strengths. Negotiate his rules with him so he feels part of the decision- making. When he shows more responsibility, give him more slack. No one ever said raising teenagers is easy, but don't lose heart. Pipher: It's harder to parent as a single mother. Two parents can at least outnumber one teenager, and can give each other a break. You could benefit from ongoing opportunities to discuss parenting issues. I suggest that you two share at least one fun activity a week so your relationship is not all supervising, rule-setting and chore-assigning. Q: How much do parents need to know about what their teens are doing? My parents have addressed me on this subject many times. My 16-year-old sister came home drunk once and was grounded for almost three months. Now my parents search our rooms constantly. They don't trust me very much, I guess. Eric Aspland, Olney, Md, Pipher: It sounds as if things get pretty tense at your place. I am guessing that your parents are doing their best to stay on top of things. Your letter doesn't mention much fun in the family. This time is important; it balances the time spent struggling over issues such as trust and rules. Family meals, vacations and outings might cheer everyone up. Volunteer projects might give your sister a chance to show she is worthy of respect as well as give your parents a break from being the heavies, Plfe: You seem to be the victim of your sister's misconduct. Treating siblings fairly does not necessarily mean treating them the same. Parents should look at individual conduct, ra — Compiled by Monica Rowe 14, object* to random room Marches.
