There are a few secrets that seem rather odd to keep hidden – this one is definitely not one of them. I think it is the right thing for the mother to hide the truth from her daughter, as it allows her to keep her innocence for a little bit longer. What’s your take? Should parents be more honest with their kids?
However, she’ll have to tell her daughter the truth one day – somehow! “Can you get me some milk on the way out? Oh, by the way, your father’s in prison because he killed my boyfriend and attempted to murder me too. Love you!” There’s no way easy way to break the news like this.
