Just curious...have your parents ever been supportive of your interest in diapers?

I strongly suspect my guardians have a pretty good idea what I get up to, but the topics never come up over dinner to be made clear. I hope it stays that way.

They don't ask questions about the sizable parcels I get in the mail, or pry into why I regularly travel (sometimes great distances) to hang out with people I met on the internet. That's the best kind of support I could ever want/need. Anything more e.g. "need help organizing your stash, Marcus?" would make me very uncomfortable. Diapers are my thing and I've done a pretty good job of supporting myself living with this bizarre quirk, with a little help from the internet.

Some people aren't so lucky. I'm grateful for their lack of interest in this aspect of my life.

I sense that the real question is "Should I tell my parents?" If that's the case, the answer is no. You shouldn't. Your parents gain nothing from it, and their approval really shouldn't be needed at this point. Just keep it to yourself and be happy until you're out the door.

If I've guessed incorrectly and you're just asking for childhood experiences with being discovered: Yes, I suppose my parents were "supportive" from the standpoint that, although they surely knew about my diapers, they didn't intervene. We never discussed it, though, and certainly never will.

My father knows, and he has not disowned me. Although, he would like me to find a different (read:more mainstream) to meet my needs. If my mom ever finds out, it's only going to hurt her with no chance of helping anyone, so I'm not going to tell her.

Absolutely agree with this. The downside if they disapprove is much more substantial than the upside if they approve. Most of the "I told my parents and now they're buying me diapers!" stories are just wishful thinking.

As for my parents: I'm not 100% sure that they both know, but I'm almost certain that my mom does. She has never brought it up to me, I've never brought it up to her, and I'm okay with that. I have a good relationship with my parents and I'm glad that they wouldn't let something like that throw a wrench in the works.

After my mom found out she started washing my ab clothes and stuff. I asked her to stop though because it didn't feel right.

Really depends on your definition of supportive. My mom made it clear that she didn't want me doing it under her roof, but she didn't hate me or anything or make a huge deal about it. It really wasn't out of character for me anyway though, at that point.

Mine act supportive about it now but they don't participate nor buy them for me.

Short answer, no. My mom caught me wearing diapers numerous times since I was around 5. Despite many bowel and urinary accidents in regular underwear as a child, she did not see diapers as an alternative. She certainly has never understood (neither has my father) why I would want to wear them. To make things worse, she resorted to shaming me and my younger brother resorted to teasing me about it throughout my life. I love my family, but they were not supportive in the least, even later when I was diagnosed as medically incontinent about 10 years ago.

If your parents know and do not kick you out, then leave it be. I wouldn't expect anything special in terms of support. It sounds cynical, but in my defense, my family is conservative and tends to sweep abnormal things under the rug (out of sight, out of mind). Thank goodness I haven't had to live with them in over 20 years!

I'll repeat my story though many members know it. I got caught when I was in college. I came home from school for the weekend. My parents were having dinner with company, and during the dinner, I started crying and couldn't stop. After four years of college craziness, lots of pot and alcohol, depression and the stress of the late 60's, I was having a psychotic break.

When I went back to school, my mom searched my room, expecting to find drugs. What she found were my makeshift diapers and gay porn. The next week I was seeing a psychiatrist at a residential mental facility. Needless to say, she didn't approve of the diapers or my gay lifestyle. It was a terrible time in my life, and yet, one of the most exciting. Thank God my wife accepts me.

my parents were really unsupportive when first found out, but they thought I was wearing them so I wouldn't have to stop playing halo. After I told them the truth about it they still didn't support it rather they just didn't want to see me do it. My dad even said that a lot of families have skeleton in their closet and as far as he was concerned my wearing diapers was our family skeleton. I know that sounds harsh, but that's really the best you can hope for. The idea of having parents buy abdl stuff for you and be ok with you wearing diapers around the house with them is a pipe dream at best.

I never really knew that if they are supportive. I don't even know if they even knew about my AB/DL/IC. I don't really know. :dunno:

As many of you know I mad the decision to tell my mom because I knew I was going to live here for at least another 2 or 3 years and I rely wanted to get more into my lifestyle, get more diapers etc. I was a very sneaky child with my make shift diapers and even was able to convince my mom to get me footed pjs for the past 2 Christmases. ( that's before she knew) I knew some day she would find out and it would of been a lot worse if she did. I was able to get here at the right time and it went over pretty well. She still doesn't fully understand, but she said she loves me a lot and gave me a big hug at the end of our conversation. Now this isn't your normal response for many parents and I wouldn't suggest doing this, unless you know your family is very excepting. My mom also know knows from recent observation and conversation that I'm bisexual. She wants me more to find a nice girl, but guys for me are just a lot easier to be with. I have had bed relationships with girls in the past and my mom saw that. Now like what Kratox said applied to me to and for a bit my mom was washing my AB things, but It does feel weird. So I now have 3 cloth diapers so I am just starting to do one diaper load for my self after the 3 have been used. I never wear around her unless i'm in my footie pjs and going to bed.

My parents found out when I was in my teens and are very understanding of it

My father found out, but I only told him due to unusual pressing circumstances. I had been hiding my diapers and pacifiers for quite a while (though he knew about the toys), never intending to bring it up. However, my boyfriend had very recently passed away, and I was beyond upset, wouldn't stop crying, basically nothing mattered. So, when my dad kept asking "can I get you anything to help you feel better", I blurted it all out, asking for diapers, which I could rarely acquire on my own. He was a little shocked, but let me have them, didn't say anything negative. He knows I'm still into it, but I just don't really bring it up now. So I'd say it was neutral/positive.

I wouldn't recommend telling unless you feel you must though. I only told because I honestly didn't care what the reaction was considering what I was going through, so I thought I'd take a chance.

My Aunt is more excepting of that particular side of me than my Father though it is getting better with him. When my Aunt visits and it's just me and her I can pop my clothes off and be nappied in front of her - sometimes to the point of just nappied - and she doesn't bat an eyelid. She knows I do it to calm me down concerning some life stresses and she's not going to halt a good coping mechanism! My Father finds it hard to see me in DL mode but mainly because he worries what's going to happen to me in the future - F.I total social structure collapse and massive local and public humiliation - that said I was allowed to do an strictly in-house and strictly in-family DL side exposing project last summer and it really worked...in conclusion a recent result is my Father saying he no longer cares what I wear in front of him as long as I'm not naked - if you're wondering though I've not really tested this statement! I 'spose I should mention I have a slightly younger brother, a younger brother who is much cooler and more streetwise than me(also more normal). To him wearing nappies at the age of twenty (and using them for their intended purpose!) is mega mega uncool and it's quite clear that in his eyes my DL side to him...well basically to him I'm the deformed relative in the attic. I look on the positive and hope that one day I'll be able to bring even him round to viewing it positively. bringmesunshine p.s there is some sunshine out there so all you need to do now is make sure it hangs around for a while!

Only one of my parents has somewhat of an idea about me having diapers, and so far her reaction has been to *mostly* ignore it and avoid bringing it up. The only time she even alludes to knowing about it is when it interferes in any small way with others, eg:

"You might want to toss that big empty cardboard box sitting in your room, it's in the way and makes it hard to vacuum."

Other than that, it's as if she doesn't even know. I do have a cousin that is supportive, but we see each other on a far less regular basis than I'm around my parents.

Neither of my parents know about my diapers, but both are aware of my pacifiers/thumbsucking. My mother is pretty indifferent towards it; my father doesn't like it but mostly leaves me alone. I could tell you that if my dad found out about the diapers he wouldn't like it at all.

Thanks for responding. It appears that the best that can helped for is an attitude of tolerance rather than support. I understand.
