There’s this website called ‘7 Cups of Tea’. Where teens and adults can go and vent on problems for depression, anxiety, and breakups, and so forth.
There is a teen section to the website and an adult section, and there is also a place on the website called a ‘waiting room’ where you can chat (again, I would be going on the teen side of the website) while you are waiting to get connected to a listener (you being the venter) and talk with people about anything really.
I’ve seen some people talk about things from cupcakes to bad breakups.
I’m not sure if my mother would approve of me chatting on the waiting room section. That is my dilemma here; but at the same time, I trust myself enough to *never* give out personal info, not even my name, and when you enter the chat, they give you a random username so you don’t fill out your first or last name in the username.
If I chatted on the waiting room section for teens, even if I’m not sure my mother would approve, and play it safe, would I be sinning?

Some said no; I’m just talking to people and reaching out. But then if I ask, and she says no, she might wonder if I do bad things, or go on bad websites, and I don’t want her on my case about that.
I honestly just want to chat with some teens about life, hobbies, and passions. If I don’t ask and just go on the website, am I sinning?

It’s important to obey your parents and know that they’re telling you to do things that you don’t want to do for a very important reason. There’s things that go on the internet that can be worse than just giving out your information or name. People can send you links to inappropriate websites and even illegal ones! Not fun at all. People can hurt you through chat rooms and manipulate you to do things.

The bible says that the devil can disguise himself as an angel dressed in white. If this looks harmless, maybe he’s making it look that way? Your mom is there to protect you as well as God. Pray about it once or twice. What’s your gut telling you? If it feels wrong, don’t do it! Just listen to your mom. She has reasons behind what she tells you to do and not to do, I advise that you listen to her! 🙂

Keep your eyes open and your ears listening. Don’t let the devil get to you!

I would say you should probably tell your mom if you feel like you’re hiding something from her. It’s definitely up to you, but it’s good to be open with your parents. They can give you advice once you’ve told them. Maybe take some time before going on the website again so you can think some more. I agree that you are being responsible, and that’s a good thing. I did something similar a couple of years ago, and I eventually did tell my mom. She wasn’t angry at all and I felt better afterward, but it took me months to talk about it, even though I quit going on the website long before that. If I were you, I’d take a break and talk to trusted friends and family about things you’re anxious about. PS: I like reading your posts on here. You sound like me sometimes and I like knowing that someone else feels the way I do sometimes.

I would recommend that you talk to your mother about it. Honesty goes a long way, and I think your mother will recognize that you are trying to do the right thing by asking her whether it’s wrong or not. And definitely pray about it. If you’re having doubts, it may be time to examine your heart.
