Yes. Until they violate that trust. Example, I never went through my kids rooms. I expected them to keep their rooms clean. Then, I found out one of my sons was smoking pot in his room. He broke a rule, no illegal drugs in our home. He lost his right to privacy, by breaking a rule. His room was moved from downstairs, to right across from my room. No door. He earned this door back after two months. He never got the downstiars room back though.

I wouldn't say children have a right to privacy, but more like a reasonable expectation of certain kinds of privacy under normal circumstances. Where the precise line is drawn will vary from family to family.

I agree... not a right... a privilege.

Children? like under 15?
In general no they do not....

Should they be able to close the door during a shower, of course... lock their bed room door? NOPE. Go on the internet in their room? NO Have a password on their ipod/ipad/cellphone that you don't know? NO NO NO!!

I don't think they have a right to privacy. But I do think that parents should allow kids a measure of privacy until they violate the trust put in them.
