Just Say It

Words can be wielded like weapons. On today’s episode, the Sugars hear from people who have something to confess but are afraid to hurt others with the power of their words. A mother finds naked photos on her 17-year-old daughter’s cellphone. Another mother has a secret about her daughter’s biological father. A daughter-in-law wants her mother-in-law to move out of her house. Should they speak up, or is it best to keep this kind of information to themselves? The Sugars discuss.

New episodes of Dear Sugars are released weekly. Do you have a question for the Sugars? Email
