I would certainly hope so, they did give me life. Maybe everybody doesn't tell their parents everything, but parents always know their kids. I don't really hide anything, they can go through my stuff whenever they gosh darn feel like it, I wouldn't care. They just choose not to.

Re: Do your parents know who you are? - August 10th 2009, 03:37 AM

hmm...me mum knows the happy go luck me that i put on for close family and few friends. or the shy, nice and quiet me that i do for adults. but they don't know the....other me. the inner me.
I'm kind of a imgainative disaster.
I think if i shared my thoughts with my parents or let them have my mind for a day, that they would try to send me off somewhere.
so no. they just know the...outter me, not the inner me?

Re: Do your parents know who you are? - August 12th 2009, 08:34 PM

Hey
Well... they know more now than they ever did.

I started self harming when I was eight, they found out when I was twelve. Then it took them until I was thirteen/fourteen to figure out it's serious, and not just attention seeking.

I figured out I was bisexual/pansexual when I was eleven. They only believed me recently.

ETC ETC....

Basically, my parents never understood me, still don't. They catch on really slowly. And they don't understand how I feel at all. Ever. But they're there for me so it's okay.
And they got me help (CAMHS) so... I guess they understand A BIT.

No. My mom has no clue about this site. She knows some of my self harm and eating disorder. Although I quit those. She knows nothing of my current slight drug use. She doesn't really know how low my social status is at school. She kinda gets my grades. She doesn't know my religion.

Re: Do your parents know who you are? - August 18th 2009, 08:00 AM

I think they know quite a lot about me; in fact, I'm certain they know most of the stuff about me that there is to know.
I used to think that they were completely uninterested in who I was because they really didn't know. I figured out soon enough, however, that the problem was simply that I wasn't telling them anything! After I learned to be more open with my parents, it felt great (I might add), and now we're pretty close.
There are still some things, though, that I haven't told them. I fail to mention my true sexual orientation around them, for example. Someday, though, they shall know!

Re: Do your parents know who you are? - August 19th 2009, 03:37 AM

No. They never will know either.

My mum tries, she invades my privacy and goes through my PC history and msn logs (which I no longer keep saved and go to lengths to make sure no one ever can see them) Reads my journals, reads pieces of papers I leave around, goes through any poems or word documents with suspicious titles... she just kind of stalks me.

My dad is a bit more respectful but he asks questions and always is angry if I don't answer completely honestly or specifically.

I just, don't have that kind of relationship with them that I feel comfortable talking about stuff with them. That's what my psychologist and my boyfriend are for.

No, they don't. In my family it's just "if you're hurt, don't let anybody else know that"...I've learned that's not a healthy family motto.

No, I wish they did, I'm supposed to have all this wonderful family therapy so that they do but it doesn't work because I don't want them to know me really.

My parents know about my history with self harm, but they do not know anything recent. They also know OF teen help sites (I was on this other one called TTL a long while back but it's since shut down to my understanding) but they as far as I know don't know much if any about TH. They know what they find out. My dad saves my message history on msn and reads it if they think I'm up to no good. Sometimes I want them to know more about me and how I feel, but they can't be bothered to listen so it's their loss. I think Kids Help Phone knows more about me than my parents do because they *gasp* listen.

Haha, my parents know parts of me. They don't know all of me. I don't think they will ever understand all of me. And I think we're both okay with that. They are aware that there are things I need to keep to myself, and I know my boundaries of what I hide, and what I don't. That's something I think is very important. Knowing what to share, and what not to share. They know about my self harm, they know about my eating disorders, they know about my friends, and they know about most of my problems. But some things, I keep in. And we both know it's better this way.


When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.
