Men, Women, Children: Invasion of Privacy

This is a thought-provoking movie that talks about how people's lives are digitally connected and its consequences in everyone's behavior. I was surprised with some of the topics that have changed in society, and sincerely, it made me worried. I loved it. Adults only.

Work in pairs:

I. Decide if the following behaviors are PR - Parents' rights to do it or if it IP - Invasion of Privacy. Explain why you believe so.

1 - Reading their children's personal diary or journal.

2- Checking their children's cell phones for calls, messages and What's App.

3 - Setting filters to block certain websites on their computers.

4 - Searching for drugs in their children's backpack.

5 - Checking the "history" of not recommended visited websites.

6 - Asking about their adolescent children's sexual life.

7. Asking their children if they are doing drugs.

8. Reading their children facebook's posts and deleting some of them.

9. Choosing their children's friends.

10. Researching on the Internet about their children's boyfriends and girlfriends or their families.

II. Watch the movie segment and discuss the questions:

1. Describe the scene. How would you describe the mother x daughter relationship?

2. Do they trust each other? Explain it.

3. Is the mother invading her privacy or is it her right to act like that to protect her daughter? Why?

4. How would you react if you were the mother? And the teenager?

5. How should this situation be addressed? What is the right thing to do?
