What can you and can't you not discuss with them? Are there any major secrets about you that your parents don't know?

No, I tell them enough to stop them prying into the things I don't want them to know.

I tell my mum most things except in relation to my private life. A while ago she made a remark along the lines of I better not go on the pill. Not sure of her reasons but I did it anyway and I'm pretty sure she knew. And now I just got the implant and I've been wearing long sleeves so she won't see lol. But apart from that not really.

I tell my parents about as much as i'd tell a work colleague. I very rarely see them and have no reason to share much with them tbh.

They do know quite a lot now... but not because I told them.

I tell them next to nothing. Nice to see I'm not the only one.

I tell my mum quite a lot. I even tell her a lot about TSR :giggle: I used to inform her every time I got a new usertitle or a gem

But secrets, nooo way. I don't tell her much really private stuff. Whenever I have in the past, I've always felt really vulnerable and annoyed with myself afterwards ... so I don't like to do that anymore.

I tell my parents nothing. I don't discuss exam results with them, because they would be disappointed no matter how well I do; I never told them about either of my previous boyfriends because they wouldn't approve; I don't talk to them about my social life because they won't like it. So yeah, we basically talk about nothing, apart from making boring small talk.

Wow this is exactly how I feel when I tell her personal things

Pretty much this. Although there are work colleagues I've actually told more to :lol:

Most, but not all and not everything to both of them. For example, my dad knows I've done drugs (just weed) but doesn't know that I've had sex and my mum knows the opposite (sex, no drugs).
