I hope this is easy to follow...

If you're not close to your mom, feel free to replace "mom" with someone that you're family-close to, just so all your answers aren't "No, I don't talk to my mom." ha.

1a. If you got a job interview, would you tell you mom about it before you got to the interview or would you wait until afterwards? Why or why not?

1b. If you didn't get the job, would you tell your mom that you had a job interview and didn't get it? Why or why not?

1c. If you did get the job, would you tell your mom that you had an interview and got the job? Why or why not?



2a. If you were planning a big vacation that wouldn't take place for another 6-12 months, would you tell your mom about it as soon as you started planning it? Why or why not?

2b. If your vacation was approaching, but you never told your mom you were planning it, and you suddenly had to cancel it, would you tell her that you were planning one and it got cancelled? Why or why not?

2c. If you still hadn't told your mom as the days were fast approaching, would you tell her that you were soon going on vacation? Why or why not?



3a. If you were/are a female and you got pregnant (as an adult), would you tell your mom as soon as you found out? Why or why not?

3b. If you were pregnant and decided to have an abortion before telling her about the pregnancy, would you tell her that you were pregnant but had an abortion? Why or why not?

3c. If you were pregnant but had a miscarriage before telling her about the pregnancy, would you still tell her that you were pregnant but miscarried? Why or why not?



4a. If you were/are a male and your girlfriend/wife got pregnant, would you tell your mom as soon as you found out? Why or why not?

4b. If she had a miscarriage or an abortion, would you tell your mom that she was pregnant but had a miscarriage/abortion? Why or why not?

4b. If she was still pregnant but you declined all parental rights, would you still tell your mom that she was pregnant but you are declinig all parental rights? Why or why not?





1a. No, because I don't want to jinx it.
1b. Yes, because I'd want to share my disappointment with someone close to me.
1c. Yes, because I'd want to share my excitement with someone close to me.

2a. Yes, because I'd want planning advice from her or my dad.
2b. Yes, because she'd wonder why I never went, haha.
2c. I would have already told her in the beginning.

3a. Yes, because I'd want her advice and support.
3b. Yes, because I think she has a right to know, and I would want somebody close to me to help with my decision.
3c. Yes, because I think she has a right to know, and I would want somebody close to me to comfort me during my loss.

4a. Yes, because I'd want to share the excitement or shock and I'd want her advice and support.
4b. Yes, because I think she has the right to know.
4c. Yes, because she still has the right to know that she has a grandchild and if she found out in the future, I think she would be hurt that she was never told before.
