I think it's okay if you're suspicious about something and want to find out about it, but snooping just to be nosey to me is wrong. I have two children ages 11 and 15, I don't snoop through their rooms and personal items, because my kids are trustworthy.
I also think snooping through their phones, personal things, tablets and etc behind their backs for no good reason can lead to trust issues with your kids. I get that parents want to be in on everything that their kids are doing, but if they are doing anything questionable, it will eventually be exposed. I personally want to have great trust in my kids and them to have trust in me. We as parents, should trust our kids until they break our trust.
