First of all, I'm a 14 year old girl. By my parents I mean my mum and stepdad as I don't know my dad. Recently, they took my phone off me and forced me to give me the password by saying "if you don't give me the password you'll never have the phone back." After this they then read through ALL my messages between me, my friends and my boyfriend. They then looked through my internet search history and saw id been looking at relationship advice and that stuff. Also, my phone has a small virus including pop ups and that. They saw on my history, which I hadn't searched at all, a porn website. They had a huge "talk" with me about this. I tried to tell them it was the virus but they aren't having any trust in me. They have been acting very weird with me lately and it's making me feel very low. I feel I cannot tell my parents anything now. All the things I order off amazon (online shopping site) they go through all my packages. I have a bra coming soon and I'm so scared they'll act weird with me over that too, although they shouldn't. I feel I have no privacy anymore. When I am feeling depressed I write things down on paper, it helps me to feel better. Well my mum reads all those pieces of paper. Any advice?
