They ask me what I'm typing, and I just say I'm writing a book on a Word document. Hehe I've been using the same excuse for the past few months and they said they are so proud I've started writing again. Oh mom and dad...

Also this could apply to anyone you know: co-workers, friends, etc.


v Haha lucky. I don't think they have any idea yet. i swear by now they probably think I'm writing a Harry Potter book or something. When they walk by me now they smile at me with so much pride.....geez am I letting them down lol.


Wait....you're 20, why do you have to lie to your parents? When I was 18, as long as I worked or went to school (college) or both and lived under their roof, the only thing they could tell me to do is to keep my room clean & help out around the house once in awhile. Where I went, what I did, and who I did it with was my own d@mn business. I did however, get my own P.O. box.....my parents were too nosy and kept opening my mail....what p*ssed me off the most was them opening my bank statements.

I don't see why they would be concerned in the slightest. I'm a staff writer and game reviewer for another site, so having a presence on various gaming fora naturally comes with the territory.

my dad lives in another state and doesn't care what I do when he's around at my house. My mom doesn't care, either. They trust me with what I say on here. Heck, they don't know what I do on the computer.

Whats wrong with forums? Good way to share mutual interests and at the same time get experience in debating. Most parents just dont understand because they didnt grow up with it. Anyways its none of their business, but if they ask i will answer truthfully.

While I suppose my parents could voice their opinions as to whether or not they want me on forums, I don't think they would care. When I was younger I would remind them that they raised me to be the way they wanted, so if they don't trust me, that only means they did a poor job. 7 times out 10 they would give me room to live my life. The perks of being overly mature and responsible at a young age. The downside, I never did anything fun. :/

Haha I might have needed to explain more, but the only reason I lie to my parents about it isn't because I would be 'punished' or they would tell me to stop. I would lie to anyone about it because like anime it is kind of like my little secret. Everyone in this thread has been posting: "OMG wut's So BAd aBoUt BEING ON ForUmS?!?!?!" I didn't say anything was bad about it (to the people that have posted that in this thread). It's just for me - in regard to the area I live in - everyone around here isn't just dying to register a username, type in a password, and join websites. Besides, I like having some things people don't know about me. It makes watching anime and posting more fun in a weird way lol.

They only warned me about online predators, after watching too much To Catch a Predator with Chris Hansen.
I don't think they really cared what I did, as long as I didn't go meet up with someone.

That was when I was under 13, now, I'm the predator.

They have no right to decide and they don't care either.
