UNTOLD: Teenagers Chop It Up About Secrets
This story is a part of Lit Mag: The UNTOLD Issue.
Some teens tell their parents everything. Maybe they don’t care about their parent’s reaction. Some don’t tell their parents things because they may feel that they are too old to run to their parents, or they just simply don’t care. I don’t tell my mom things because of her temper and her overreactions to things. Whatever the case may be, these stories go untold.
In the studio with me, I have Aayala, Ben, and Dakota who shared with me who shared with me some personal experiences they may or may not have told their parents. We definitely shared the experience of stealing and hiding that from our parents as kids. What parent wouldn’t be upset about that? But as some of us have gotten older, relationships changed.
