There is personal information that I don't want people to know. Like the code to our garage door, I don' want them telling the neighbor kids how to get into our house so I tell them it's personal and a secrete code just for us. However I don't like using the word secrete because I want them to know they need to tell if something bad was happening to them.

No! It doesn't matter what the secret is. It could be something as simple as mom is a different religion from gmom to as drastic as the woman you call aunt is actually your baby brother's mother, but shhhh don't tell anyone. It's ridiculous to ask a child to keep secrets. They don't understand why it needs to be done in the first place. And just the encouragement to keep secrets is going to cause problems, way beyond the whole molestation argument. Can you see it now, you lo getting involved in a bad group of friends and your lo keeping those secrets from you and everyone else? How are you supposed to re-teach lo that some secrets are not and should not ever be kept? Teach honest first, teach no keeping of secrets and eventually teach discernment.
But if you have a family secret, keep it that way and don't spill the beans to you child!!
