A recent poll of 2,000 British parents found 55 per cent check up on their children online, mainly by logging on to their social networking sites, such as Facebook.
Four out of 10 parents admit to logging on to their children's social networks, and 39 per cent use Facebook to see who sends messages to them.
Eleven per cent of parents also admit they have even set up a Facebook account just for snooping on their children.
And if you've ever tried to become 'friends' with your child on Facebook and sadly had the request rejected, you're not alone. A massive thirty per cent of parents say their children have ignored their friend request online!
Do you spy on your children online?
