hey ug,

well at the moment im a bit pissed off at my dad because he always goes through my chatlogs and through my internet history and i tell him that i strongly disagree with it and i think i should be allowed to have some privacy and he tells me that the government says he has to look after me until a suitable age.. which he says is 18.. and he says that means looking at my chatlogs



well last night he asked me for my personal laptop's password and i refused to give it to him and one thing lead to another and we had an argument about him thinking that i have somethine to hide (which i dont have anything to hide) and i tell him i dont want to give it to him because he goes through my chatlogs

it leads on to me telling him i dont agree with what hes been doing, going behind my back and looking at all my chat logs and **** and this is what he said ' bryton i dont give a **** what you agree with as long as youre living in my house you do what i ****ing say!



i honestly and whole-heartedly dont agree with what hes been doing but dont get me wrong.. what can i do? i make it so it doesnt save my chatlogs or history but he just logs onto my user and changes it back... he also goes through my phone whenever he can.. i feel like i cant do anything.. next thing you know he'll be tracking my ****n myspace aswell

sorry for the long rant i just had to get it out somewhere.. and no dont worry im at my mums place he cant look at this lol

Son, get the fuck off the internet.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

damn that sucks. I'm sorry.

My parents didn't give a **** about what I did so I don't know what it feels like but I know I would hate it.

You're dad sounds like a douche. I'm sorry but I can't think of anything you could do since you already tried to reasonably explain to him that thats an invasion of your property.

set up your browser to not save history/cookies/etc... and set up your IM program to not log you conversations = problem solved


edit: use a different IM program like pidgin and get a portable version of firefox and run it off a USB memory stick

if i were you i'd try to talk to him, act as mature as you can and raise some valid points, like privacy etc, just don't say "it's not fair!" coz that makes you look bad
#7
Put a password on everything, don't let him do it. He's being a dick.
#8
The government tells him to read your chatlogs? That's bull, don't give in to him, it's your private conversations.
#9
he can be a douche at times.. but he can be cool at other times.. he tells me that theres plenty other parents that look at their kids chatlogs.. i disagree.. seljer ive tried doing what you suggested but he always changes them back.. and yes im called bryton lol..

Don't keep chat logs. I heard it's really weird if you keep them for 2/3+ years though and go back and read what you were saying at those times.

I'm very nostalgic as it is, so I wouldn't do it.
#11
Well at least you won't turn out like one of those kids that go and meet a friend on the internet and they turn out to be a 50yr old paedo.

Just talk to him (politely) and say you'd like a bit more privacy. Tell him your friends can't trust you anymore becuase they know that wat they say won't be in confidence and it's not fair on you etc.

just remember, shouting never solves anything.

well when I was a minor I just set my browser to delete history and cookies every time I closed out, and didn't record chatlogs.

If you do the first suggestion everyone is gonna think you look at porn, though.

Though, I delete my history quite a bit because I find it annoying, etc.

Edit - the USB suggestions good though.

Tell him that he's contradicting himself. If he truly needs to monitor your every action to be a good parent (including all conversations) then he should really follow you around everywhere. He's got to accept that he can't have full control over you. Besides, if he thinks he's doing you a favour, he's wrong, because when you're finally free of his presence you'll either be incapable of independance or you'll test the limits of your freedom too far.

Also, give him a copy of 1984.

I feel really sorry for you - there's nothing you can really do and it's ridiculous to say a child has no right to privacy.

personally i reckon he could monitor your activity depending on you age to an extent.
he's probably just being a worried father there's some scary stuff on the internet etc.

like was mentioned above just sit him down and discuss it in a adult manner and try to come to some sort of compromise.
#19
i can see why your parents live in separate houses.

honestly, i'd just forgo the internet at your dad's place. it's not worth the stress and douchebagery.

easiest thing to do is to get rid of the chatlogs, I cant believe your dad looks through them though, thats really mean.

Yeah, but what are the chances that ALL of them were paedophiles?

or how about just not recording the chatlogs in the first place, is there some IM client that records chatlogs without you telling it to?

They can't. Everything on my computer is password protected and I made myself admin. I can check on there though.

Damn that's the worst age for this sort of bollocks. So your father actually CHANGES settings you have made to your own tastes and knows your online and messenger passwords?

Who does he think he is, Stalin? Ridiculous.

At least I can vote.


But, i suppose you could try to reason with your father like someone else said. Otherwise it seems to just be a losing situation. Realy nothing you can do, to be honest.
