Question Do your parents know you use TH? - November 22nd 2012, 12:50 AM

I'm just wondering, because mine don't (as far as I know) and I just like to keep it private. It's kinda like "my" thing.

Yes, my parents know and I talk about it openly. I do not tell them my Username or anything like that but I talk to them about how I volunteer here and what not.

When I was younger and first joined the site...I was about 17ish...I didn't talk to them about it at first. I knew my parents wouldn't mind if I used the site but like you it was my thing. Now that I am older I can still talk about it and not worry about my privacy be infringed upon.

Re: Do your parents know you use TH? - November 22nd 2012, 01:35 AM

Heeck no.

I told my guidance counselor once because I was going through a rough time and needed to get help for something but was scared to directly say it. So she had to call my mom in and stuff and read off a printout but didn't show my mom the site because she promised not to. My mom afterwards said she didn't want me on these sort of sites and such, and tried getting it out of me but I wouldn't tell.

I'd be royally screwed if my parents knew, since some of the stuff I say would upset them or make them put me in a psychiatric facility. This is my private space anyway.

My mother does and I live with her and she's not totally thrilled with the idea but hasn't made effort to keep me away from the site... If she knew how much I was on here she would probably be mad because it's consuming my life

Re: Do your parents know you use TH? - November 22nd 2012, 01:39 PM

My parents don't know, they don't like anything that has to do with my depression or history of self harm. They know about it obviously since they had me hospitalized when I was younger, but they don't like to talk about it and would prefer to pretend it didn't exist, so no way will I tell them about the site. My husband knows about it though and has no problem with it. I haven't let him read my post though as this is kinda my private space.

Yeah. I wrote it on my CV back when I was a Buddy/mod, my dad questioned it and I just told him. He doesn't know my username though, I don't think he really cares enough to look here

My mum also knows but she knows little about the internet so she doesn't really know what a forum is.

My sisters found out about it and it eventually spread to my dad. I'm kind of annoyed because now my dad is all noisy and I felt like he was invading my privacy. He thought I had an online boyfriend and got very mad for a while. But I don't mention it at all now, I made it seem like it's old news and stuff. I mostly go when I know im alone (at school, in my room with my door closed.) so hopefully he forgot about it

Oh gosh, no! My parents would have a fit if they found out. They don't know about any of the problems that I have and I'm pretty sure if they found out, they would disown me.

Mine know. Just about everyone knows to be honest. I talk about it openly but nobody knows my username, or at least i've never told them it.

They don't mind I'm on here. They just know I help people and they trust me to be safe. They've even met Lex, so they trust me to make friends with the right kind of people online.

Oh, God, no. My father couldn't care less - not in a bad way. My mother would make me all these questions about why I needed to go to a site like this and what kind of problems I was having and why I couldn't talk to her about it... so, no, better not to tell her
And I post really personal stuff in here, so I'm pretty paranoid about anyone finding out I use teenhelp or worse, finding out my username. Yeah, I'm using that Google's Anonymous tool (anonymous web surfing, something like that) right now

My parents and I haven't talked about the site, but I don't try to hide it. I'm on the computer in the living room right now, and it's totally fine. They know that I've had my issues, and I'm sure they'd be fine with it.

My parents do not know I use this site, I'd rather have them not know I use it because this is my private life. I talk about personal experiences that have happened here and I would rather have them not know of my existence on here.

Other than that I love this website! So helpful and fun to use!

I've told my mum, and she calls it 'that website' (she can never remember the name ) and I don't know if my dad knows, but my mum probably told him.

And my mum repects my privacy, so she wouldn't look on here. But my dad would look, so I'm glad my mum can't remember what this site it called! And neither of them know my username either.


And she turns up the music, to drown out her life.

22/12/2014 was the last date I self-harmed. The longest I have gone so far is 1 year, 2 months and 5 days. This time, I hope I can give up! New record: 1 year 6 months! Yay!!

No. Last time I used another forum site, my parents got really mad. They claimed I was out there to look for attention. In actuality, I'm need to know I'm not alone.

Yep they do know. I told them sometime around the start of this year. But I just tend to avoid conversations about the site with them.

I highly doubt it. When I was on the family computer a few years ago my mum may have briefly seen it on the screen, but never said anything about it. And my dad lives in Canada so I doubt that he knows either.

My Dad knows that I come on TeenHelp because I've met up with quite a few Members here and he knows that I volunteer for the site. I haven't really spoken to my Mum about the site, it's never really come up in conversation so I'm not actually sure if she knows I'm on here.

My parents are well aware of my activity on the site as a volunteer, and know I use it for some problems as well. They do not know about somethings, but they do know about the site, and they do know I am on it quite a lot.

Noooope. My parents generally warn me about going on sites that i'm not suppose to, so I don't think they'll know anytime soon either.

Well, I've only been here a couple of days so it's unlikely that they would.

I don't plan on telling them if I continue using the site anyway. I tend to be secretive about my Internet use, so my parents don't really know what sites I use. They'd probably have a fit if they found out about half of the stuff I do on the Internet haha.

Hell no, and I'm very happy. I'm keeping this to myself. I tried telling my parents that I had depression, needed professional help and my mom calls me crazy and is like "LOOK AT YOUR FUCKING LIFE AND BE HAPPY!" Be happy? How can I!?!?! I'm adopted and my dad hates that side of the family so he won't even let me have contact, I am even laughed at for having depression, so this site won't be known to my parents for a very long time...

This is my private life and my parents don't know half the stuff I do on here.

Everybody needs secrets from their mother's. This is one of mine.
She found my last one -facepalm- and changed my password somehow, so I lost that account. Luckily, I made two accounts though at the same time (purely accidental), but I changed the username and kept going on.

I bullshit a lot to my mum now concerning what I do.

Heck no..nobody at home knows anything regarding TH and I don't wanna tell them also I like some privacy and on TH I can share and express feelings which I don't want them to know.

Don't they know, nor probably care at this point.

My mum knows I use it (as I LH a fair bit, she wondered what I was doing, so I said), however I've blocked all but my user account on our home network from accessing any page other than /parents, because it's my private space to rant and express myself fully.

Several of my friends from school know I use it though, because they do too.

My dad found out about two years ago, when I was really upset about something that had happened and I was on TH all day long getting help with it and trying to keep myself busy. He was curious what I was doing all day long on the internet and I just told him about TH. He thought it was cool that all of us help support each other but was concerned that I would get triggered by so many people posting about the things we go through and the things we do. I talked to him about it one other time I think and other than that he hasn't asked about it.
