Teenage Problems/Coming out

Question
for a while, I wanted to come out to my parents...but I don't know how and I'm afraid of the consequences...I'm a bi boy and I even have a boyfriend...but I'm just afraid of what may happen if I do come out...should I do it? And how can I do it?

Answer
Well you can try to tell them straight up many parents will be understanding and loving and if not then that's their fault for not understanding. It's also a good idea to try to tell them when your moving out or when they can't really have any say in your life as you are an adult. Another thing you can try Is to first come out to several trusted friends and or adults like cousins or relatives then have them with you when you come out that way you have that support there for you if things go bad.

Experience

I know exactly what it is like to go through high school. I am a Christian who wants to be a scientist so my views on religion are not one sided. I enjoy helping anyone in need and will try to the best of my abilities to make you feel better in any way I can. I have two loving parents but we have our issues. I have ADHD that has made me struggle to get to where I am today but it was worth it.

Organizations
I am a member if my local chapters of Golden Key and Sigma Alpha Pi both of which are honor societies who select students in the top ten percent of their class to join.

Education/Credentials
I am attending college full time and will be focusing my studies towards becoming a chemist. I have extensive knowledge of teen life, since I am still a teen. I love to help people no matter what the situation is so please feel free to ask me anything. However I am best at answering questions dealing with life as a teen including sex, puberty and your body.
