Do We ？ When it comes to the sensitive issue of privacy, different people may have different opinions. Teenagers and young adults are often heard complaining that their own privacy has been infringed by parents their diaries pried into, their calls overheard, or their personal letters opened in their absence. In other words, their privacy is not duly respected by the adult world.
However, parents and teachers think otherwise. In their eyes, children and young students will never be old enough to mind their own business. As the members of the older generation, they should ensure that the younger generation grow up and prosper in a favorable climate. It is a responsibility from which they ought not to escape. Equipped with this mentality, teachers and parents are inclined to interfere in the privacy of the adolescent.
As far as I am concerned, there is something on both sides. Sure enough, everyone has his or her privacy to a certain extent, and there is no exception with children and young people. But we can not go too far on this issue and regard everything as part of the inviolable privacy. On the other hand, parents and teachers have the right to know us on the basis of respect for our reasonable privacy.
