Expressing yourself is essential to being authentic, and where better to express yourself than on social media? From posing in fashionable clothes to show off your exotic house plants, social media is there for people to share who they are and how they live. Some users will even share personal information that they wouldn’t dare tell their parents! It’s a safe space, where people feel like they can open up to strangers, without judgment, and without consequences. From discussing how much they make to sharing deep personal information, these people opened up on Reddit, and shared some personal facts they keep from their parents.
You always aim to make your parents proud. You want to make enough money, be a great parent, and live in a way that they can brag about you and take pride in you. So, naturally, when you get into trouble, your parents are the last people you want to tell. What they don’t know won’t hurt them, right?
The last thing anyone wants is to get in trouble with the law. However, in some cases, it’s unavoidable. Luckily if you get in trouble as an adult, you don’t have to tell your mom — especially if one of your incidents involved getting arrested with your dad, who’s on your side. Definitely don’t want to let mom in on that incident.
