You need to know what they're doing in terms of "in their room (hopefully doing homework, but you know better than that)" or "out with friends" (and when they're not at home you'll never know what they're actually doing for certain).
Most importantly, "not burning stuff to the ground" or "not stealing a brand new tv", but you raised them well so they won't do that.
You don't need to know the level of detail of "browsing pr0n" or "drinking different beers and getting sick" (that's a good life's lesson!).
Sorry to say this, but you sound like all children are out to get their parents arrested for stupid stuff they did.
You did stupid stuff when you were young, I did stupid stuff when I was young and your children will do stupid stuff too, it's called growing up.
Luckily, it's mostly getting drunk and throwing up or skipping class and getting detention kind of dumb stuff.
I say, unless you raised an irresponsible little brat, give them a little credit and don't secretly spy on them.
And if you did, they probably won't let you spy on them without a big fight in the first place.

None of our parents spied on us (I presume) and we all turned out fine.
Anyway, I think super's wife handled it pretty well as can be read in his latest post[^] Smile | :)
It's keeping an eye out, but not flat out spying.
