A: As long as they are not violating any laws, it is perfectly legal for anyone to observe your public actions and report that to another person - there is nothing legal you can do to prevent it except stay in an enclosed private place 100% of the time. More likely than not, if this is something your father is having done, then he probably needs proof of certain behaviors he believes you are doing for some sort of legal action. As to getting him out of your life, you likely can't do anything about that until you are 18.
