Being open with your family can be difficult depending on your individual family. Some parents are easy to talk to and others are more difficult.
A tip to make it easier could be to write them a letter and leave it sitting in their room. Or you can send a long text and say I don’t know how to say this to your face but I really want to tell you. I want you to know. Can we have a conversation
about this? Once you get the conversation going, hopefully your parent will reciprocate and they will help you out with it.
Another suggestion is talking to your parents in the car. You don’t need to make eye contact and it takes off pressure when you’re not looking at each other.
On the other hand, if you have parents who are not the type you can talk to or go to for support, then you need to find support somewhere else. This is common. A good place to go looking for it is your guidance counselor at school or somebody from your church or even one of your good friend’s parents. They may be open to talking with you about what’s going on. But it’s important that you try to help yourself by finding another adult who can help you.
