This is true. But teach them at the right time. The younger the kid, the more things they overlook. When either they're old enough to know or knowingly exposed, explain. But let them experience life. Guarding them against life will make them weak.

although you shouldn't hide things from curious children, there are somethings that they were not suppose to know for their own good

hiding things from them makes them more curious to know about that amd that is dangerous. its good to explain them in your own polite way

If you want a child to listen and do as you tell them, you should explain your reasoning. That way, children learn the lesson behind the rules and carry those lessons throughout life. "Because I said so" teaches nothing. Some things should be kept from children to maintain their innocence as long as possible. However, children are not stupid and are often more aware than they are given credit for. There should be a balance between what you tell and what you hide.

It’s better to let them know things from their parents than from their friends. Every child is unique. Sometimes, she needs privacy and she just needs you to listen. By being a good listener and giving her personal space, it may lead her to get closer to you. She wishes you would trust her as you give a personal space for her. The point is to believe what your child tells rather than what other people tell you about her.

This sort of depends. There are things about adulthood that would only unnecessarily burden a child if they knew about them.
