61. If it's public then nothing should stop you except for your conscience.
You asked for age, I don't mind giving mine - 31. Oh, and male. But then that's available on my profile.

This is no different to you suddenly finding your daughter's diary left out on her desk, open, with the writing for all to see.

If it were me, you could tell your daughter that you found her LiveJournal via a web search (you were trying to see our of pure curiosity other people with family names on the 'net) and 'accidentally' found it. You could then ask to read, and if she says no, then respect that decision. Only problem is that now you know where her "diary" is, she can't now "move" it to another place easily.
