Skipper Coates, a high school teacher in the US state of Utah, asked 85 of her year nine students to finish the sentence “What my parents don’t know about social media is…” in anonymous notes.
In an effort to educate parents, the mum and teacher, who has been concerned about the “mental health, bullying, and social media use” of her students, shared 13 of the responses on Facebook.
And oh boy, there are some pretty big secrets these kids are keeping from their parents.
"What my parents don't know about social media is that I have a secret rant account. I talk about my mental health. I also have internet friends," wrote one student.
"I talk to people I'm not supposed to and I have an Instagram account when I'm not supposed to," shared another.
One of the most alarming responses was also the one Coates made sure to point out was not unique.
"What my parents don't know about social media is... I swear so much and I talk shit on everyone," that student wrote. "I get nudes from boys I don't even know. I expose and make fun of everyone and I love catfishing. But there's lit things."
