This is a good practice, but one should never force a teenager to READ; that conversation might be the death of the possibility that the kid would even pick it up – or worse start hating it. But as a parent, it can be a really helpful read, since you’re mature enough to understand what the conveyed message is without getting hurt or feel objectified.
