Transcription: 
I really believe in giving children their world. And I think that they should have a safe place where they can go and be themselves and do things that teenagers do. But I absolutely 100% think you have to snoop if you think there's something going on. If you think that they're in a bad relationship, if you think they're doing drugs, if you think they're having sex when you don't want them having it - whatever. if you suspect there's something going on where they might be harming themselves or harming others, then I think it's not only your right, but it's your absolute responsibility. I mean, you're the parent. And they're your child. And you need to make sure that this child is safe and not doing something that is going to be potentially harmful to them or to somebody else.
