Mom and Dad told me when I sold the condo in Scottsdale to help out with buying what is on the shopping list and buy my meds,insurance, phone,aand dr. bills and help out with the bill at the restaurants when we go out.
I send Mom and Dad email confirmations from Chase, and AX when I pay online. I show then receipts when I pay the car and secured loan with Sunwest.

I let Dad know when I buy and sell at Schwab.

I put 6% of my pay into a Roth 401k.

Good. I'm glad I was wrong. It just sounded so odd when you said you didn't want your parents to know you had extra money because they would demand that you spend it on them. But you may find it easier if you gave them a rent payment every month. It may be worth discussing this with them.
