I think she should ease into telling her parents, and we've suggested ways to do it. Buuut... we keep being met with "It's not time yet" and "I'll do it when I'm ready."
If she keeps up with this, it'll never be time.
Know what I mean? But if we tell them, they might be angry at her, and she'll feel hurt and betrayed.
She keeps telling her parents she's hanging out with one of her friends. The other night, while she was hanging out with him and his family, I had to have actual verbal conversations with two people who were asking if she had come back to my house yet and if I'd heard from her. I'm surprised no one noticed something was up from how nervous I was!
Sometimes keeping a friend's secret can be really hard.
