Honesty is the best policy, but that doesn't make it the easiest or most accepted policy. Much of the time, there's an unspoken understanding that when someone asks for your opinion, you give them the censored version that they want to hear.

But occasionally the gloves have to come off, so the truth can come out.

In a recent post on the Am I The A*shole subreddit, a woman asked if she was too harsh on her mother when she got honest about her parenting skills.

AITA for telling my mom that I don't think she should have another baby because she wasn't a good mom to me?

OP wrote that her parents split up last year, and her mom has been hinting at the possibility of trying for a kid with her current partner.

My parents split last year. My mom is now dating a new guy and she's hinted for a while that they might have a baby together. Last week she told me that they were thinking of starting to try soon and asked me how I felt about it. She asked it in a way that made me feel like she was looking for a response like "oh that's great you should definitely have a baby." I couldn't think of a good way to express how I felt without hurting her feelings so I said I wasn't sure. I didn't expect her to ask me again, but yesterday she asked me the same question.
