Default Parents and kids do you feel about home drug/alcohol screening?

This is something me and a friend were talking about after seeing some news article relating to the subject.

Think it's an invasion of privacy? Think it violates trust? Would you be upset with your parents if they wanted that kind of reassurance from you instead of just accepting your word? I know it's hard to believe, but some kids DO LIE about things like that.......even what most people and society call "good kids" are good at hiding that stuff

My thoughts:

As a parent, if I asked my kids to let me screen them and they were like "Ok......whatever makes you happy" that would probably put my mind at ease and I probably wouldn't bother with the test.

On the other hand, if they flipped out and started yelling about not trusting them blah blah would probably make me think they had something to hide and would make me do the test immediately! *shrugs* Human nature I guess, LOL

As a kid (back when I was one) I would have probably rolled my eyes but peed in the cup and let my mom have her way. I don't think it would have made me feel all warm and fuzzy knowing she wanted to, but I also had nothing to hide so it would get done and over with, relieve her mind and I could get on with my life, LOL

So, what do you think?
