I'm not sure exactly where to put this question, but I have a concern about how to confess/repent a past action I have been involved with for a few years now.
Basically, back when dailup was installed, my parents would always have to enter a password to access the internet, and this was considered secure enough for them. When we updated to high speed, there was no more need for a password, and fearing that they would not react well to this, I created a program that takes a password and then opens the web browser. This made them believe that I was still unable to access the internet, and I would be "safe".
So for the past few years this has been the case. I use the internet at my leisure but never have told them. I don't do any horrible misdoings or anything with it, I just felt that their restrictions were unnecessary and inhibiting.
With a lot of anxiety building up in myself lately, I've began to view this as a wrongdoing, and I don't know how to resolve it. Is this something that can be resolved only with a confession, or is there some form of restitution, etc., needed to make things right. I don't really know how they would react if I told them, and while part of my wants to, another part wishes to not create a huge issue of this.
If anyone has suggestions for what to do next, I'll be very greatful! :)
