15His Son Had Cancer
When it comes to parents not wanting their kids to find something out, not everything is a mistake. Sometimes it can be an experience that the parent feels portrays them in a moment of weakness. This first Reddit confession is from a parent whose young son had stage 4
cancer. But don’t worry, it has a happy ending!
The user Come_along_quietly says, “I’d sleep in his bed crying all night thinking about how I was going to explain to him what death was, and how to explain he was going to die.” That's some heavy stuff. A person cannot help feeling very sorry for this parent, an understanding why he hopes his son never finds out that his parent thought he was going to die. Luckily this boy did not end up dying of his cancer, for those that might have been wondering which is excellent news indeed!
