I telll my parents things including whether im in a relationship or not. I kinda of like the fact that they are not as strict as some other parents would be because my freinds parents basically want to take control of their lifes.

Of course not. I keep some secrets to myself also. I'm not sure if it's a good idea to share EVERYTHING with your parents...that's my opinion.

yup.. i do tell my parents everything i did!!! hahaha.. i'm kinda a family kid... its really hard to hide things from them.. my frens, my school, my problems, my homework.. blah blah blah...

hmm... i';ve never actually started a relationship with anyone cos i am still young.. but i once liked a guy and i told my parents... heehee... they reacted quite normally... cos they think it's normal for teens to fall in like/love during this age... my dad once said :If u dont even know a guy, i'm taking u to the coounsellor...

Drinking - she already knows.
Smoking - again, she already knows from my clothes and breath smelling like cigarettes.
Sex life - definately no, we don't discuss it in any way but she knows I've been taking girls home.
Relationships - Yes, generally me and my mum are very open and often talk about the relationships i have with friends and family and work mates etc.
Criminal act - no, i dont do crime and wouldnt let her know if i did.
Drugs - Yes, i confessed to using ecstacy.

I don't think I will be able to talk or tell my parents of the followings, since I don't think they will understand me anyway. Since I think they can be very oldfashioned in many ways therefore I always kept things in herat rather than telling anyone the problems.

I remember my mother speaking to me about sex, it was so awkward and traumatizing I decided I wasn't doing anything else on the list to avoid the conversation with her.

my mother suddenly one day a few years ago brought up the question of making friends with me,
I was hesitant at first.
Then I really messed my life up, I normally wouldn't consult with my mum anything, let alone things I would be in trouble for.
Well one day I told her Mum I'm ruined I took a substance a shouldn't of taken, she help my through these things, and I have never regret open my mouth.
I went through times and yet I'm still not very open, I'm happy I let her know.
We're I can surely admit is closer *smiles all around*

My mom is kind of talkative and she usually releases it to me and my siblings. She keeps asking about our, school, friends and other stuff. She won't stop badgering you until you give in. I somehow thought that she has super powers or something. My mom is pretty open to us too, she told us her younger years, her mistakes made in her youth, about alcohol, smoking and stuff. She always tells us about it and then after that, she will lay down the rule on it. Whenever there are school activities, she is there and she even knows more about stuff going at school because she calls the school and asks about our progress. Though, she is like this, we love her and I guess we can talk to her up to a point I guess.

^^ I think you have a wonderful mom! My mother badgered me in the same manner so much so I'm known as the "favorite" in my family although I'm the middle child. Everyone says I'm spoiled but my mom comes to me because I'm the reliable, responsible one. (her words not mine) I'm happy you realize already how much of a treasure you're mom is, even though my mother and I clashed at times I always knew she only wanted the best for me...I wish my mother told me about her younger dayz but she won't LOL So I KNOW there's some juicy stories there. lol

I have few secrets and I am a fairly transparent person, so my parents have a pretty accurate and insightful impression of who I am as an adult.

Honestly, I would choose not to tell my parents everything but I am not good at keeping things to myself because by nature I am an "over-sharer". I like to talk about and dwell on my feelings to other people. So....by default my parents (esp Mom) is my confidante because she on my side 95% of the time. My other bff is my brother.

I am easily coaxed (suckered) into sharing and sometimes it doesn't occur to me that I shouldn't answer someone's question truthfully.

Oh, to be clear, I am neither perfect or innocent.

Really, this is a matter of trust between the parents and the child. My brother is different from me lol he's very private and secretive.

I am pretty much like you, and I agree with you;) I also is a really open person, my mom also very understandable, so I can tell her almost everything, off course there will be something I don't tell, but for the most then it is easy to talk to her. I even think that when I get married and getting pregnant, my mom and dad will be the first one to know lol

i am prety close with my mom and i tell her a lot of stuff but not everything. maybe because my mom is pretty laidback and undersanding (she is an asian mom) she knows times are different now compare to when she grew up so i guess thats why i can tell her stuff and feel comfortable
