Secret accounts are extremely dangerous, and you should NEVER have one. When you have a secret account, you sign up for a website without telling anyone, especially not your parents. This website may be harmful and inappropriate for you, which is why your parents restricted you from it!
It's much better to ask. You won't get in trouble and you have a chance of getting a "Yes!". It's also easier because it takes the weight and stress off your shoulders. It's very stressful to know you've signed up for a website and you don't want your parents to find out.
There was a 10-year-old girl who signed up for Instagram and her mom never knew. Don't ever think that when you have something like a secret account, that it will stay secret. Word gets out. Either your parents find out or someone tells them. Ever heard the saying, the walls have ears? It means people are always listening, whether it's eavesdropping or just a passerby picking up on the conversation. Well, the walls have eyes too. Your parents are almost always watching. It's not easy and not good to keep secrets from them!
Also, when they do find out about your secret account, they will be angry. They have a right to be angry. They may not trust you with using social networks or gaming sites. You will loose their trust, and will have to build it back up. It easier to break a wall than to build it.
Your parents are there to guide and love you! If you aren't allowed to do a certain thing on the internet, it's for your own protection! Though, sometimes parents are a little overprotective. So, that doesn't mean to sneak around and think, Well they don't know what their talking about. I can set up an account and they'll never know. No one will. All you have to do is reason with them! Sometimes you can persuade and sometimes you can't.
