How do I convince my mom to stop reading my diary

How do I convince my mom to stop reading my diary?

There's is no reason to trust her ever again.
Such temptation is irrestistible, if she once breached your privacy, she'll probably do it again, just more carefully, no matter how much of a bad conscience you make her.
You'll be writhing in fear and agony each time when you're not home and have panic attacs about what she might find.
Maybe she would stop for a few weeks but some day she will grow weak and do it again.
This is why you have to hide your diary from her if you want to keep writing.
How?
Some tips on how to create a good cipher:
It might look like that:
(don't you dare copying my design)
2.
Create an e-mail account
No one but you can access this account.
There you can open mail sketches and write in to them what you'd else write into the diary and save it as a w.
i.
p.
.
The good thing is that you can log into the account from your phone and write from whereever you are.
3.
Hollow out a book.

Get a very boring and useless book.
A book your mother would never touch, something like I dunno…
(Unless she likes this type of books)
Or a very boring science book (Unless she is interested in science).
You get what I am up to.
Next, hollow out the book like that:
Buy a diary in a fitting format and hide it inside.
If you are too much of a bibliophile and cannot bring yourself to cruelly kill and cripple a book like that there is a less safe method: take off the cover from a book with a loose cover and wrap it around the diary (it must again be of a believable size)
The uncovered book should be placed on another shelf, as far away from the hidden diary as possible so there will be no suspicion as to why you posses two copies of the same book.
This is only a reasonable method if you have at least 100+ books in your room.
Place a thin layer of dust in front of the shelf.
If the dust is gone, you'll know you've been exposed.
4.
Hide the diary in your school locker
Of course only if you're sure that no one searches these lockers (some schools do so I heard, others don't), and your parents do not know the code/have a key.
It is safest to get an empty school notebook, in which you'll write, so no students will have a reason to assume you're writing a diary, something like that:
On the top you write “Maths Notes” (or similar) as to ward off any suspicion.
! Do not keep this booklet in your room, as your parents might search it for grades etc.
!
Additionally:
It is useful to have a diary decoy which you can hide in a semi obvious place (such as under a matress), so she will not get the idea you're hiding the real thing somewhere else and start searching more eagerly.
Don't write anything very personal into it, just things she can read, but keep it realistic.
Also, don't use a locked diary.
They can be opened with a hairpin within 2 minutes.
I've tried it.
And there are no traces!

#2: Write an obviously fake over-the-top entry.
Make sure all the names you use are made-up, too.
The occult ritual part is even better if your parents are religious.
May 14th, 2019
Dear Diary,
Today was pretty great, actually.
The first thing I did when I got to school was go to my locker.
As usual there was a bundle of marijuana from my secret boyfriend, Paul.
There was also a sweet little mote attached to it talking about how wonderful last night’s secret sex had been.
He said he’s so glad that Mom never checks on me at night so that we can make love all night, every night.
I love him.
<3
I decided to not be a total thug and go to homeroom just because I was in a good mood from reading Paul’s note.
It was mainly boring as fuck.
Luckily, after that, I skipped math class and went into the school basement with my besties, Ava and Dan, and Paul.
We had fun smoking crack drugs, and then we had a totally hot BDSM orgy with some other kids and the school janitor, who brought some whiskey & vodka for us.
He’s such a dear.
:)
After that, we had an occult ritual honoring Satan and his demons while we sold him our souls and hearts and stripped naked for the greatest evil forces to see.
It was so sexy & evil.
I love my life!!!
~ Hallah
#3: If all else fails, hide it somewhere nice.
You can cut out fake book jackets that look credible and paste them onto your diary or hide it, say, in your pillow case or behind older books or stuffed animals in your closet.
#4: If you want to be a sweetheart, just talk to your mom about it.
Personally, I used the methods above because they were fun, but you do you.
If you want, just sit down with your mom and talk about your privacy and stuff.

I just attached a lock to mine.
(attached two cardboard flaps to the cover, and punched holes.
I put a tiny lock on it.
)
This, I keep in my drawer, which has a few traps on it.
Actually, it's kinda easy to tear, but then I'll know if anyone's touched it.
And my ma is REALLY afraid of that.
She's basically fearful of disturbing anything in my room because of how many little traps I have laid out literally everywhere.
And I don't really need to worry that much, because my ma has basically stopped already.
It's just a precaution.
I keep my old ones in a small cupboard which has a lock on it too.
The key is hung on a nail hammered to the inside of my drawer.
It's literally invisible, but very convenient to reach.
(I had to make it reachable because if it takes long to get the key out, I get lazy and don't write.
)
The spare key is in an old coffee can, that I have shoved in my cupboard.
It has thermocol balls in it, so if anyone opens it, everything will fly out, and no way anyone can get rid of that proof in MY room.

First of all, it is a good habit to maintain a diary.
Some write diaries for maintaining their daily activities and some write about their personal affairs.
.
.
Whatever.
.
Frankly speaking, I maintain a diary for writing my relationship stuffs.
And I have kept it in a place where my mom has no idea about it.
It is a place where I keep all my old books.
And personally my mom feels lazy to clean up my bookshelf .
So she won't be coming to that side.
.
And I took advantage of that.
.
.
Coming to the question,
But understand one thing, if you start hiding something from your mom, that means you are doing some mistake.
It is better to say your mom what you have written on your diary and I hope she is the one person who Understands everything.

Maintain 2 diaries.
One for her, suitably edited and censored for her reading pleasure or displeasure and one for you hidden where she won’t ever find it.
Or you could learn a new language and write it in that medium so she cannot understand it.
You could write something along theses lines for her to read:
Dear Mom,
I know you are reading my diary behind my back because you seem to know a lot of things I never told you.
Please respect my privacy and stop reading my diary.
If there’s anything you want to know about me and my life, please ask.
Of course, I reserve the right not to tell you everything you want to know.
How would you feel, if your mother read your private thoughts and secrets, without your knowledge and permission, when you were 12/14/16 years old?
You’d feel horrified, exposed and vulnerable, right? That’s how I feel when you do this.
Please stop.
Your sad and disappointed but still loving Daughter.

Some people suggest to write outrageous things in the diary, make up stuff, or fake a real diary…
But I would suggest you write about how your mom reading your diary made you feel:
Betrayed, isolated, feeling like you can't express yourself without someone looking over your shoulder.
That it makes you feel like you have no privacy, like you're in a cage, or a prison, where your mom has turned into a warden that can reach into your head and can read your thoughts and your most private feelings.
Thought police.
Don't think this.
Don't think that.
It doesn't help.
Just makes you feel terrible about yourself.
It takes away the feeling of home and makes you want to run away, to escape, to anywhere.
You can't live like that, and you don't want to anymore, and if she keeps doing it she's going to lose you.
And it will have been her decision.
Good luck.

Here are some suggestions.
Spreading the rumor suggested about seeing them having sex is useless.
All that’s going to do is upset them and possibly start disciplinary action for you or a retaliation war where they retailate and then you retaliate and it keeps going on making all of you miserable and hating each other.
They need to trust you and respect your privacy as far as your diary and mail.
They don’t have to stay out of your room.
Don’t ask they stay out of your room ask them to respect your private diary.

Write something like this:
Dear Diary,
so recently my mum has been reading my diary, so mum if your reading this now I would really respect some privacy,
Still love u the same tho
-xox ellie
If you've done this and you wanna make sure to catch her if shes snooping again, write something extreme in your diary, example:
Dear Diary,
I went down to Tonis yesterday and he lost the crack that he promised me last week! But I will get on to that later, Ryan came round yesterday.
It was AMAZING.
I'm honestly so glad my mum doesn’t check on me anymore, otherwise she'd have been in for a shock, lmao.
We smoked weed and made out for 2 hours while Netflix and Chilling 😉 , but today at school, James started hitting on me and ngl i want him so bad.
So, I invited him over tonight.
I told him to sneak into the window at 12am.
Hopefully ryan doesnt find out.
Then, wait :)

You probably wont convince her just by asking her to respect your privacy since she has already shown that she has none for you.
Respect usually has to be earned so might I suggest you booby trap it and leave it out for her to read.
You know her expectations of you and her fears and how she reacts to things probably better than her.
I would write something in that diary that would set her up to be humiliated in front of other people to teach her a lesson about respecting peoples privacy.
I wont tell you exactly how to do this because that is something that should come from you and I dont want to get into trouble helping a minor to get even with their parents.
Just remember that your not trying to physicaly hurt her, you just want to embarrass her enough that she will find that respect that you will now deserve.
Its respect that your asking for and respect is something that needs to be earned.
Embarrass her infront of other people and you will have earned her respect and she wont be reading your diary anymore.
Good Luck

I quit writing in a diary, only to have my Mom tear my room apart looking for it.
The one that no longer existed.
She said it was the only way she could know what was going on in my life.
Not that she hadn’t already made herself buddy-buddy with all of my friends who told her EVERYTHING about me already.
I’d tried talking to her about it, but she felt entitled as my mom to read it.
Nothing I was going to say was going to change her mind.
So I stopped writing in one.
For a few years I’d always get a nice new blank diary every birthday, but ended up just drawing in them or giving them away to friends who didn’t have the same invasion of privacy I had going on at home.
She never once felt guilty.
I love her to death, but to this day I have a hard time maintaining a diary for any longer than a couple of weeks.
Sometimes I only last a day or two.
C’est la vie.

You want your mom to stop reading your Diary? Well, you have come to the right answer! (Get it?)
Anyway, let’s suppose you have a diary and your mom reads it.
Well I have some hopefully helpful tips for you.
Tip 1.
Always.
Always keep your diary with you.
Now if you have a tiger mom and she demands you to keep your diary in your room, I have a another option for you.
Tip 2.
If you have some sort of computer then make sure to download this extension called My Diary.
It is only available for chrome but it works just like a Dairy.
Tip 3.
Do you have a language that your mom does not know of but you do? Then start writing in that language.
Make sure to use a very rare one like Japanese or Korean etc etc.
Tip 4.
Just like someone said in one of these answers, use code language.
Make up different characters and use them for the alphabet.
Also keep in mind to have a chart with you just in case you forget.
These are some tips that I hope are helpful! Good luck!
Thanks for reading!

Well, if you know she’s reading it, either don’t keep one or keep it on you at all times so she can’t gain access to it.
But the bigger question here is: why is she violating your privacy by invading it like this?
She might be your mum, but that doesn’t mean she’s allowed to take away your right to privacy.
Call her out on it, tell her she’s being controlling and invasive, and that you have the right to write whatever you want in your diary.
This is a toxic form of parenting.
Parents might be responsible for their children, but it doesn’t hand them the right to every aspect of their child’s life, and certainly not to read the contents of something so personal.
If she invades your privacy in other ways, perhaps you should consider reaching out to a teacher or counsellor, or someone who’s there to speak on your behalf, and have them tell your mum how she should and shouldn’t be violating you in such a manner, because something’s not right there.

Dear Diary or Mom, since you’re reading my Diary, I hope you know that I got some requests of you number one I know your reading it because your not busy watching TV or doing anything else occupied with your time besides peeping up on my privacy so since your reading my Diary, I got some requests number 1 put my Diary back, Number 2.
Stop reading what I’m doing and start writing your own Diaries.
number 3.
if you’re gonna read it, don’t make it obvious you leave the Diary open each time you leave it and number 4.
I appreciate it you Buy me my favorite kind of Candy.
if you thought you were gonna find anything interesting in here well, you were wrong.
So Mom? Are you tired of reading this since your not finding anything Juicy or that Scoop feature The Adults say on Entertainment Tonight?
Smartass Yes lol.

I have a secret diary which I’ve been keeping for a year and a half now, my parents are cery intruisive I’ve had 2 diaries before this but I only wrote down bland and boring things in then because I knew that my parents would peek and peek they did, they read everything laughed at my writing and some spelling mistakes and made fun of me for days.
I didn’t write a diary for years after but the next time I began I made sure it was secret, I wrote everything in it and I hid it, for a while in between I even lost it and got a mini heart attack but later on I found it so the best advice I can give you is
Keep the diary secret
Write when your parents are asleep/gone outside
KEEP THE DIARY WELL HIDDEN, preferably close to you

Get rid of it, switch to a flash drive, and stash it in a place only you’ll be able to find.
Only create/edit files on this flash drive on your computer and don’t let anyone else find out about it buy you.
If it keeps happening, then use Google Drive/Docs and write on there, making sure to never reveal your google password to anyone.
Make sure you list your password as NEVER saved on your computer.
Don’t let it remember it, even if it’s convenient.
Your mind is the most secure lockbox of this information.
Finally, make sure to log off after every session.

I just take my diary with me wherever I go, but if that's not an option for you and keeping a written journal is therapeutic, order her to stop and be adamant that, if she doesn't stop, you stop talking to her and you stop doing chores and you stop acknowledging everything she says.
If she continues to invade your privacy after demanding that she stop and reminding her that it's unacceptable and means you can't trust her, then you simply pretend that she doesn't exist when she's around.
But if you can fit your journal in your handbag, take it with you wherever you go and, even at home, don't leave it unattended.
If all else fails, insist on reading her diary or email or text messages to make things fair.
She'll hate that idea and hopefully get the point.

You should write in your diary how violated and upset you feel.
act like you don’t know that she’s doing it.
Then once she reads it she’ll be faced with how she’s hurt you.
You can express how angry you are with her completely unfiltered.
She can’t confront you about it or she’ll have to admit to reading your diary.
And she won’t keep reading it because she knows you’ll know.
The reason someone would read another person’s diary is to find out things that they won’t say out loud.
If she knows you don’t like her reading your diary she’ll deduce that you don’t want her to know your secrets and thus, won’t write them in the diary.
Get a new diary and hide it well, maybe get one with a lock too.
Then she gets the message and won’t mess with with your privacy and even if she does she can’t get it anymore.

I wish I knew.
When I was 15 I went with my church youth group to another state to meet up with their church youth group.
I didn't have a boyfriend from 7th grade till I was 18.
Went to a small private school.
I was super awkward and way to clingy.
Anyways I met this nice guy who was a couple years older and we exchanged addresses.
My Mother would open and read my letters before I got home from school! She also read my return letters.
I told her many times I didn't care if she read them after I did but they were mine! I wanted to read them first!
She said she needed to be able to keep on eye on what was going on.
That I understood and still do.
She also read my dairy the time I kept one.
Nothing was safe!

You can’t, but you can create a personal cypher.
A cypher is when you use a symbol (or letter) to stand in for a letter.
A cypher you don’t make up yourself (such as Elfish, Klingon, Runic, Morse, Wingdings, or Arabic) can be copied and looked up online, and you don’t want that.
To foul people good at cracking cyphers, you want to be careful to mix it up a bit.
Consider having multiples of some letters, such as “e,” dummy cyphers, and merge small words with others, especially “a” and “I.
” You might use frequent abbreviations (“lol,” for example), code words you don’t explain to anyone (such as “Hal” for your phone or computer), and eliminating punctuation, too.

How do I convince my mom to stop reading my diary?

There's is no reason to trust her ever again.
Such temptation is irrestistible, if she once breached your privacy, she'll probably do it again, just more carefully, no matter how much of a bad conscience you make her.
You'll be writhing in fear and agony each time when you're not home and have panic attacs about what she might find.
Maybe she would stop for a few weeks but some day she will grow weak and do it again.
This is why you have to hide your diary from her if you want to keep writing.

She might be your mum, but that doesn’t mean she’s allowed to take away your right to privacy.
Call her out on it, tell her she’s being controlling and invasive, and that you have the right to write whatever you want in your diary.
This is a toxic form of parenting.
Parents might be responsible for their children, but it doesn’t hand them the right to every aspect of their child’s life, and certainly not to read the contents of something so personal.
If she invades your privacy in other ways, perhaps you should consider reaching out to a teacher or counsellor, or someone who’s there to speak on your behalf, and have them tell your mum how she should and shouldn’t be violating you in such a manner, because something’s not right there.

Dear Diary or Mom, since you’re reading my Diary, I hope you know that I got some requests of you number one I know your reading it because your not busy watching TV or doing anything else occupied with your time besides peeping up on my privacy so since your reading my Diary, I got some requests number 1 put my Diary back, Number 2.
Stop reading what I’m doing and start writing your own Diaries.

Smartass Yes lol.

I have a secret diary which I’ve been keeping for a year and a half now, my parents are cery intruisive I’ve had 2 diaries before this but I only wrote down bland and boring things in then because I knew that my parents would peek and peek they did, they read everything laughed at my writing and some spelling mistakes and made fun of me for days.
I didn’t write a diary for years after but the next time I began I made sure it was secret, I wrote everything in it and I hid it, for a while in between I even lost it and got a mini heart attack but later on I found it so the best advice I can give you is
Keep the diary secret
Write when your parents are asleep/gone outside
KEEP THE DIARY WELL HIDDEN, preferably close to you

Get rid of it, switch to a flash drive, and stash it in a place only you’ll be able to find.
Only create/edit files on this flash drive on your computer and don’t let anyone else find out about it buy you.
If it keeps happening, then use Google Drive/Docs and write on there, making sure to never reveal your google password to anyone.
Make sure you list your password as NEVER saved on your computer.
Don’t let it remember it, even if it’s convenient.
Your mind is the most secure lockbox of this information.
Finally, make sure to log off after every session.

I just take my diary with me wherever I go, but if that's not an option for you and keeping a written journal is therapeutic, order her to stop and be adamant that, if she doesn't stop, you stop talking to her and you stop doing chores and you stop acknowledging everything she says.
If she continues to invade your privacy after demanding that she stop and reminding her that it's unacceptable and means you can't trust her, then you simply pretend that she doesn't exist when she's around.
But if you can fit your journal in your handbag, take it with you wherever you go and, even at home, don't leave it unattended.
If all else fails, insist on reading her diary or email or text messages to make things fair.
She'll hate that idea and hopefully get the point.

You should write in your diary how violated and upset you feel.
act like you don’t know that she’s doing it.
Then once she reads it she’ll be faced with how she’s hurt you.
You can express how angry you are with her completely unfiltered.
She can’t confront you about it or she’ll have to admit to reading your diary.
And she won’t keep reading it because she knows you’ll know.
The reason someone would read another person’s diary is to find out things that they won’t say out loud.
If she knows you don’t like her reading your diary she’ll deduce that you don’t want her to know your secrets and thus, won’t write them in the diary.
Get a new diary and hide it well, maybe get one with a lock too.
Then she gets the message and won’t mess with with your privacy and even if she does she can’t get it anymore.

I wish I knew.
When I was 15 I went with my church youth group to another state to meet up with their church youth group.
I didn't have a boyfriend from 7th grade till I was 18.
Went to a small private school.
I was super awkward and way to clingy.
Anyways I met this nice guy who was a couple years older and we exchanged addresses.
My Mother would open and read my letters before I got home from school! She also read my return letters.
I told her many times I didn't care if she read them after I did but they were mine! I wanted to read them first!
She said she needed to be able to keep on eye on what was going on.
That I understood and still do.
She also read my dairy the time I kept one.
Nothing was safe!

You can’t, but you can create a personal cypher.
A cypher is when you use a symbol (or letter) to stand in for a letter.
A cypher you don’t make up yourself (such as Elfish, Klingon, Runic, Morse, Wingdings, or Arabic) can be copied and looked up online, and you don’t want that.
To foul people good at cracking cyphers, you want to be careful to mix it up a bit.
Consider having multiples of some letters, such as “e,” dummy cyphers, and merge small words with others, especially “a” and “I.
” You might use frequent abbreviations (“lol,” for example), code words you don’t explain to anyone (such as “Hal” for your phone or computer), and eliminating punctuation, too.
