Why hide it from adult children?I haven't talked to my kids YOUR way, I don't think. I also have never used my communication with them to declare that my way is the only way or even the best way. And just because I don't talk about something personal about myself (to my kids or to anyone) doesn't mean I'm ashamed of it.
I believe the comments on this thread are a perfect example of why people choose to HIDE and don't want to share controversial opinions and/or life choices.
Just because I'm not ashamed of something doesn't mean I want to be attacked and snidely laughed at by others about it.
