Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and Father’s Day comes not long after. Such days honoring parents are often filled with a storm of emotions, gratitude, and grievances alike. For SixContext #151, we’d like you to tell your parents something you can’t say aloud.

What six words have been itching at your subconscious all these years? Have you never found the words to tell them how much you love them? Resent them? Do you want to share a childhood memory you’re sure they’ve forgotten? Or finally ready to confess your darkest secret? Whatever it is you need to say to those who brought you into the world, say it in six!

If you'd like to share a backstory (we love reading them!), be sure to submit your entry as a Six and include the link to the Backstory in the comments below. Share as many stories as you like, but do post only one entry per comment.

Remember to tag us and include #ParentsInSix when posting your Six Words to Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
