As a mother, I will now have to jump in on this. :maul LOL, j/k.
However, it is most important that discussion takes place between the parent and the child. If you go about this lifestyle, and then your parents stumble onto the knowledge that you now train as a Jedi, think how badly that could go. They will ask, “Why, if this is not harmful, did you hide this from me? Who are these “instructors”? What part of this training could be harmful? Did you not trust me enough to tell me you were interested in this?”
There are so many more questions and accusations that would come up. As a mother, I would rather have my child come to me and say, “Hey, Mom, look… I have found the path that I would like to follow in my life, but I would love to have your opinion on this matter, and would enjoy being able to share this experience with you. Would you mind taking a look and telling me what you think about this?”
In this way, trust is established, there are no secrets, and you have still made your parent feel needed, respected, and included. Trust me, that goes a long way with a parent.
Anyways, I would recommend open communication. Never hide anything from a mother. Our eyes are everywhere…muahahahahahahahaha…
