Since all of my children were under our wings before anyone ever heard of a smartphone, I wasn't faced with THAT challege.

So I have wondered how parents of children handle today's communications devices.

I found out last weekend as I spent time with my grandchildren in the Houston area.

My 13-year-old, seventh-grade granddaughter has a smartphone, one far more expensive to operate than anything I own. She got it, according to her mother, with the understandintg that every once in awhile my daughter or her husband would go through the cell phone and look at what had been sent, received and texted. My daughter told me that's the arrangement most of her friends have with their kids.

She has carried through with the threat, too, and has found that seventh-grade boys will say and do the most alarming things, something I could have told her right up-front. Boys of all ages do quite alarming things.

Nevertheless, I'm glad this arrangement has been worked out amicably.

But, it is so very disconcerting that our government doesn't trust its adult citizens enough to refrain from being Mommy and Daddy and violating our constitutional rights while at it.
