I'm curious how others feel about mail. We order a lot of things online—the vast majority of shopping is in fact through online purchases—so we get a lot of mail and packages. Obviously I like to be the one to open my packages, but...eh, no biggie if my husband does. Same for him. Many times we don't know what's in the box so that's going to happen. As for a paper mail, I open it all because I handle bills and that sort of thing. I know others, however, would NEVER consider opening their significant other's mail and who would be upset it someone opened their items. So I'm just curious, how "protective" or not are you? The reason I bring this up is because it was an issue with the family recently. To make it short and sweet, my parents opened my kid sister's mail regarding school and she flipped out because it was "her" mail. I would say her reaction was to take the spotlight off of the contents of the letter (not great) and not so much that she felt violated. But that brings me to another question: Do you and would you read your children's mail and if so under what circumstances?
