A person's teen years are some of the most interesting and tumultuous of a lifetime. Thanks to hormones and a growing sense of independence, teens often seek to try things their parents might not approve of, such as opting for a goth lifestyle. But sometimes, for the sake of everyone, it's best to bend the truth about things they've done as a teen.
Even years later, as a fully grown adult, it can be hard for people to admit to parents the secrets they hid while growing up. The internet, however, offers an anonymous confession space. Some people holding on to teenage memories have revealed in Reddit forums the biggest secrets their parents never knew about - and still don't need to know.
