Should You Let It All Hang Out With Your Family?

In a 1994 lecture on Gen. 50, Dennis Prager said: “It is a rare parent who wants to know all the details and it is a foolish child who tells all the details even though they know it is not necessary the parent knows it and it might hurt them, such as about their sex life. Kids who don’t follow in the exact religious ways of their parents. Do they have to announce to them, ‘I run my home differently than you do’ and hurt their feelings. There might be certain acts you put on to make them happy. With a family, ‘Let it all out!’ is a ludicrous principle. It is foolish to live an act but you don’t need to announce who you slept with last night.”
