  • iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- According to a study of 2,000 American parents commissioned by the tech company ParentWise, 6 in 10 parents say their kids have no right to privacy in their digital lives.The study notes that of that 60%, 84% say they have the rights to snoop over their kids' online activity -- as well as their smartphones, computers, tablets, and other devices -- in an effort to ensure their safety in a connected world.The survey revealed that while nearly all parents polled say they're concerned about what their kids are exposed to online, 64% were focused on talking to strangers online. But just 39% apparently were uneasy at their kids posting videos and pictures online. Two-thirds of those polled say their child's cellphone has a negative impact on them, and an overwhelming majority -- some 63% -- say their kid's cellphone "actively hinders" their ability to raise their child properly.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
