Older children are often exquisitely sensitive to the emotional reactions of each parent and may seek to protect a parent from pain or disappointment. When they have an especially wonderful weekend with their father, Kevin's sister asks her brother not to tell their mother. He is unable to keep his adventures secret, kindling an embarrassing situation for everyone. The commentary focuses on the problems caused when children are asked to keep secrets from either parent. It examines the distrust that ensues and the conflict children feel when their own happiness causes adult resentment or serves to incite further parental hostility.
