Re: Do your parents know who you are? - June 29th 2009, 05:05 PM

My dad: No. NoNoNoNoNo. Hah. I haven't really spoken to him for two years, and even then we didn't cover much ground.

My mom: Sort of. She sees what she wants to see, and judges me based on that. If I have a problem she can't deal with, she pretends it doesn't exist, she pawns it off on someone else, or (my personal favorite) she gets mad at me for not smiling enough.

I don't think my parents know. If they do know, it would be my mom with a slight, very small idea. I prefer they not know right now.
I think my mom MAY have noticed a few things, but never about my suicidal thoughts or what I really feel.

Re: Do your parents know who you are? - June 30th 2009, 01:16 AM

Yes, they do. My relationship with my mom and dad is different though. My mom is the one who really helps me with my problems, while my dad is great at keeping me distracted and such. He knows my problems too, but he's not great at helping. But overall I'd say they both know me.

But judging from the replies, I guess I'm lucky to have parents willing to understand me...

Re: Do your parents know who you are? - June 30th 2009, 02:37 AM

My parents know one side of me, the side that most of my friends see etc. but the only person I've really been completely open with is my boyfriend. I try not to let him worry though and sometimes feel guilty about lying about whether I'm ok or not (generally when I'm a bit pmsy or he's said something that hit a nerve, we talk things through afterwards though).
I don't think I truly know my self anyway.

Re: Do your parents know who you are? - June 30th 2009, 03:39 AM

Nope, I don't think they know me at all. I mean, my Dad. NO CLUE. I barely speak to him these days, he's never really known me at all. And my mum, well, I think she thinks she knows me, and thinks I'm honest with her about my life. But I'm not. She knows what I want her to know, which is nothing. And she only thinks she knows me because I keep her informed on a couple of my friends lives, just so she doesn't pry into my life too much. But there is part of me that thinks they don't actually want to know me, I mean, sometimes I think my mum might get a slight idea that something is seriously off with me, but doesn't question it, because she doesn't care anymore. And my Dad, well. He stopped caring a long time ago. So basically, I just throw on a smile, and act like everything is okay. And that makes life easier for everyone, they think they know me, and that they have a normal teenage daughter, and I get left alone.

They know I'm depressed to some extent but they choose to ignore it which is an advantage on my part because they don't seem to fully understand the help that I try and get. They don't know I'm suicidal or that I've SH'd but I think that might tear them apart if they found out.

Re: Do your parents know who you are? - June 30th 2009, 09:58 AM

My parents know most of me. They know enough about me. But I'd have to say that my father has no idea I'm deep into the BDSM lifestyle and have an 'owner'. My mother has a slight idea, but even she doesn't know exactly how devoted to it I am. They don't need to know that I find it sexually exciting to crawl on my knees for men and beg to please them...my owner is a very important part of my life now, and I have no problem introducing him to my family as a boyfriend, but they just don't need to know the real dynamic of our relationship.

Everything else, I'd say they know me well. They know who my friends are, know what kinds of things I do for fun, and know about my mental health issues.


Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

My mother understands me more than anyone, and knows what I want, who I am, and knows everything bar like one fact about me.
My dad, well, he is more like a cool dad, I don't share lots with him, cause I like him to be my cool dad that takes me to concerts .
My mother knows I work on here, and I'm glad she does, cause it makes her proud, that she brought me up to help people. Dang I'm cheesy today

I can answer this with a definite no...
But at the same time my friends also don’t know me fully because I never mention anything that goes on at home.

My mum thinks we're all buddy buddy and close, she's decided she knows everything about me. . . but she doesn't, I've emotionaly cut myself off from my parents, I don't wan them to know me, and I don't want to know them, I don't like the kind of close minded people they are.

Short answer: No, they don't, they wouldn't be able to tell you my favorite food, colour, or who my bestfriend is

Kind of.. My mum knows about my past SH and difficulties and school, but they're not even a quarter of the story.

She doesn't know beyond that, like why or what I feel like.

This probably sounds weird, but I don't even know everything about myself, so I can't see how I could possibly know. I don't think that anyone knows you better than you know yourself though, so I'd probably have to say no. But my mom knows a lot of things about me, a lot of times the things that I often forget about myself. But sometimes I think she knows more about who I was in the past than who I am now, if that makes any sense. I don't think she understands everything about me completely.

Hmmm. Well, my parents think they know who I am. But they really have no clue. I'm not dead on the inside, just numb. I laugh with them and joke with them. And smile, genuine smiles, sometimes. And even when I'm upset I smile, so I don't think they can tell. But hey, I've told them everything that I want them to know, just not everything they need to know. lol.

My dad knows absolutely nothing.
My mom knows a few but not entirely everything. She knows about my SH before, one of my ex and my troubles in school but that's not all of it. Sometimes, I try to open up to her but a part of me pulls back. *sigh* Oh well...

Re: Do your parents know who you are? - July 15th 2009, 04:14 PM

i thought my parents didn't know, but they knew more than i could guess at. they knew about the pressure at school and my arguments with my brother -- and most importantly, they knew what the elastic band perpetually around my wrist meant.
i was on the verge of telling them everything one night when my mum knocked on the door and asked if everything was okay. she meant this on a wider scale than that moment, and i pretty much broke down into tears in seconds.
now i keep mum updated on most things, everything i want to talk about. she doesn't ask, she trusts me to tell. but she does, i think, keep an eye on my account here, and i have a suspicion she looks through my laptop internet history when i'm out. but i don't see that as a violation of privacy, i let her, because i have learnt that i do need looking after.
besides, i can delete anything i don't want her to find.

They know the bare minimum of all that is going on with me, but nothing detailed.

They don't even know what my personality is like half of the time. So if anything at all were to surprise them, it'd just be knowing that I enjoy going on TeenHelp and other boards like this to hear out what other people are going through.

Since I come off very insensitive in real life and never talk to them about my problems, it would be something new to them they've never seen in me.

Meh, they know me in regards to trivial matters. How long I shower, What I like to eat. Stupid trivialities. They like to think they know me, but it's quite easy to sway them and make them think whatever you want. Saying that, I now realize what a manipulating little twat I am when it comes to my parents. Whatever.

I have yet to really post anything on here that would even remotely shock my parents.

That being said, no, I don't feel like I know them either though. When we moved, I found a whole bunch of old letters my dad wrote to his grandparents and mother - he was literally nomadic in the '70's, and it was like a completely different person I have never met before. Working so much has changed him, I think.

And my parents don't know the half of it. I've been struggling for almost five years now to tell them about a sexually abusive teacher - but I can't even articulate it to my therapist. I want to tell them, but I feel like we're all strangers living in one house - we barely see each other in person to begin with, and we don't function like a family - I feel awkward even hugging my parents - much less telling them something like that.

I don't think they have a clue who I am - and I don't think I have a clue who they are, or who they once were, at least.

I can make this simple.

My Mom -> Knows basics, plus extra little details about my life. She knows me 60%, but not really.

My Dad-> He knows basics, if that. I would say he knows me 25%. Very clueless...Does not know my favourite color, what my rat's name is, or who my best friend is.


I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without.

Post Re: Do your parents know who you are? - August 3rd 2009, 03:29 AM

my parents definatly dont know who i am.
its weird though because i consider my mom one of my best friends.
but she has no idea who i am or about how i feel or anything.
no one knows about me. NO ONE. the part of me that logs on to TH is a secret. and i do a good job of keeping it that way.

Nope. Not a thing.

They don't know much about it but i'm totally fine with it. They only just speak the same language, so it would be difficult to talk about it anyways.

No. My mother sees me as being sensible, and this is true now. She sees me as being weird as a teenager for not drinking or smoking etc, but she never knew I was drinking at the age of 12. Bad times. She's right on that, but I hide all emotions from her, and we talked about stuff a while ago, but only a little and I got uncomfortable really quickly. My dad I never see, so no as well.

my parents think they know me,and i let them think they know me,but really they dont have a clue. they know im going out with a girl and know that girls name and that its a long distace relatonship(but they just recently found out about it because my older sister told them). they dont know who my friends are,where my friends live,they dont even know that i have 2 exs. they dont know about TH eitheri keep it a secret from them,same with my aim. they dont even know i used to have a drinking problem,but my grandma does. my parents dont even know that sometimes i smoke still,i used to smoke all the time(they didnt notice). my parents dont know me,they choose not to and i choose not to let them get to know me,i dont need or want them trying to control my life.

For the most part my parents know me, I'm the good kid they think and know I am. We have an open line of communication and we talk daily but not about REAL personal stuff, but I'll vent to my parents, and I can relate more to my dad then my mom, since I'm practically a replica of my dad. They know what drives me to succeed and things that make me mad. They know I use adult language even tho I do not use it in front of them. There are two things that they do not know about me (well maybe they do) but other than that I am the shy quiet, but yet loud kid they know and love.

I don't think my parents know me that well...my mum told me today that she didn't think I was eating regular meals...it only took her 3 years to notice.


Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
