Mom is Angry at Her Son for Sharing a Family Secret

One parent on Reddit tried to withhold something crucial from her 10-year-old daughter and was outraged when her 16-year-old son spilled the beans.

“Things have been incredibly hard for our family since he went away two years ago (three years remained on his sentence),” she added.

“My son (16) is aware of what’s going on, but my daughter (10) is not. She thinks he’s working in another state.”

Wait, what? Yes, she has been lying to her kid for years about where her husband is.

She doesn’t indicate if her husband is the kids’ father, but either way, he seems to be a key part of their life.

So, it’s rather unusual she would keep this a secret. Apparently, the youngster thought so too, and he recently told his sister.
