Jane and her partner have a rule when it comes to what their two girls get up to on the phone and computer. Does it seem like snooping?

Do you ever worry about who your kids are talking to on their cellphones and what’s being said? Well Glee star and stepmother of two girls Jane Lynch has one major rule: “My partner and I let the girls know that we absolutely reserve the right to review texts, e-mails, address books and content at any given time,” she says in an interview with Prevention magazine. Do you have the same rule with your kids?

“It’s a good idea to discuss this with your children in advance so it’s not seen as ‘snooping’ otherwise you lose their trust,” Jane suggests. “It’s also a good idea and extra safety precaution to have access to all of your child’s passwords and lock-codes.”

“Having a Facebook page is also a great way to show your kids that you have stepped out of the stone age and that you are down with the latest technological advancements,” she also recommends. “And of course now it’s easier to see what they are up to on the site as well.”

HollyMoms — what do you think of Jane’s rule? Do you have any similar ones in your households?
