Disapproving parents ‘deliberately’ try to split children up with boyfriends or girlfriends, finds study

ONE in three parents unhappy with their child’s choice of boyfriend or girlfriend has deliberately tried to split them up.

In a study of 2,000 parents, a third admitted causing arguments, banning them from seeing each other and not passing on phone messages.

Others admitted to listening in on phone conversations or hiding their mobile phones.

Of the parents who took part in the study, 15% even admitted to posing as a friend on Facebook or Twitter to see their profile.
