Children and Privacy

The Washington State Supreme Court has taken another step towards creating a pedocracy. My opinion on this is the following: a child under the age of 18 has no presumptive expectation of privacy in his or her parent's home. I make sure of that in my house by explicitly telling my children now (at ages 8, 7 and 5) that I consider it not only my right, but my obligation as a parent, to know what they are doing and saying in my house. Does that mean that they have no privacy? No, because I don't abuse the privilege.
