I've read many posts in different forums about telling your parents about being AB/DL. And I think the main recommendation from users is to NOT tell your parents about it. I kinda disagree with that.
I am not a psychologist, but when users write "HELP, should I tell my parent?" or "Please help, how to tell my parents" or "I'm freaking out, does my mom know?" seems like you are a little bit stressed out about the whole situation, and over the years (lets say from age 12-17) I think it may increase the chances of having difficulty functioning socially (ok, I may exaggerate a little bit). Not only the "does my parents know" part, but also from hiding your stash ("did I hide them well enough?"), how to buy without anyone knowing, thinking about if anyone will notice your diaper under your jeans and etc.
You may ask, "does my parents really need to know?". No, they don't. But do you really need to hide your stash every time, and being afraid of them finding it out by themself? Isn't it better if your parents know and you don't need to hide it every time? Of course it is.
Keep in mind that I only recommend telling your parents if you are freaking out about them finding your secret little truth If you have just tried being in diaper once or twice a year, or don't see any problems having this fetish, your parents don't really need to know.
I must says that I've never been in a situation where I told my parents about it, since I just experimented with diapers when I was 12 years old (very few times), and I needed them when I was 20 because of my incontinence. So I don't really have any experience with telling my parents, is just my opinion of the topic
But whats the worst thing that can happen if you tell your parents about it? Let's think you are 15 years old.
1. They tell your or their friends.
Well, why should they do that? It must be embarrassing for them if they tell everyone that their kid is still using diapers.
2. They get angry and make an appointment to a psychologist.
Fine, then you can finally talk to a person who supports you, and that can tell your parents that this is normal/puberty/experimenting/part of being teenager or something like that.
3. They get mad and throw your stash.T
ry talking to them about what AB/DL means. Give them a link or two to websites where they can read more about the topic (Wikipedia for example).
But keep in mind that if they accept you being AB/DL, you don't need to show your diaper or stash to your parents. Keep the stash away and don't go around with only a shirt and a diaper, unless you know your parents are OK with it.
And since "I don't know what I'm talking about", this is just my opinion about the topic. I'm sure people disagree with me, or have experienced the opposite of what I just wrote
What is your opinion?
