  1. There are some things it is better for a father not to know.
  2. There are some things it is better never to know.

I can't understand how the sentences are grammatical. Isn't "that are" better suited than "it is"?

Note: First sentence is from a TV show. Second sentence is from Google Books.

    Does "It is better for a father not to know [this]." make sense to you? We can reverse the sentence "{This] is something [which] it is better for a father not to know." – Kate Bunting Jan 14 at 13:14
  • @KateBunting Ah, yes, that does make sense. – Vincent Y Jan 14 at 13:33
