Question As an adult, did you tell your parents things you did wrong as a teen?

When my two sisters and I became adults, we told our mother a few things we did as teens that we weren't supposed to do. For instance, I told my mother that I hooked school for three days in a row when my parents were out of town.

Another time, I "borrowed" my mother's car at about midnight, picked up two friends and took a long drive to New Hampshire. We didn't do anything wrong; just went for breakfast and goofed around. I had my license. I dropped my friends off, and was in bed by 8am, with nobody in the house even awake.

My sisters told our parents a few stories. We didn't tell them anything that would flip them out, just normal teen stuff.

I didn't have to. They already knew everything.

I did tell them things, but not everything. I told them about my past drug abuse as a teen. My parents knew about it though.

Some, but not all.

I think my folks pretty much knew everything I did. I was a homebody anyway, and when I did do things socially, they knew who I was with and trusted/liked them.

I was always a good kid, got good grades, etc; so my mother was surprised when I told her about occasionally hooking school or "borrowing" her car in the middle of the night. Still, I guess she knew that not many kids are perfect and most break a few rules here and there to have fun.

I was just the opposite, when I was a teen, I did poorly in school.As a matter of fact, I went to 4 different high schools in 4 years. I had two suspensions from two different schools inthe same year. With that said, I was kicked out of my parents house. The military was a way out to save me. So when I graduated high school (thankfully) I immediately enrolled in the Navy. Best move for me.

I told some, not all. The passage of time has a way of mitigating the impact of those actions somehow, even to the point of being able to laugh at some of them now. But if my parents knew those happenings when they occurred, well to paraphrase Col. Jessup in A Few Good Men, they wouldn't have been able to handle the truth, and I might not have survived to being able to tell you about it in this post!

Did you tell her about making out with that dude in the church parking lot?

I never did anything seriously wrong besides for underage drinking. However, my dad did the same thing as a kid and I'm pretty sure he knew I was drinking long before 21. I never skipped school though or did drugs.

I never left home as a teen. I didn’t really do anything that I would have had to hide from them in the first place.

No, I never told them. My Mom was quite "square" and my dad very strict in some ways which was a good thing because they saved me from getting into any serious trouble. My dad was cool. He liked The Beatles and understood my passion.
