Make sure you disclose it first hand to your kid that you are doing it. As long as you do then you are within your right to do so. This part of the law is not black and white. If you treat is a provision in order for you to pay for that service where they can use it then it is within your right. I forget which state had a similar case where the kids won, and some kid was able to get out of jail free card because of it. The judge ruled that it was inadmissible in court due to neither the child nor the person in question did not know they were monitored.
