Parents are supposed to protect their children from the dangers of the world, but sometimes it's not strangers or bullies parents need to shield their kids from: it's secrets.
On Reddit, parents revealed what secrets they have never told their children. Some secrets are understandable, like why one parent never takes their child to see their grandfather. Others, like the reason why a child's dad doesn't live at home, feel like a secret time will inevitably reveal. Unlike secrets teens kept from their parents, these hidden pieces of information aren't lighthearted - they could seriously mess up their kids.
