    I can pretty much guarantee you that neither of your parents will be remotly awkward about the situation. Think about it as telling your parents about a stomach ache or similar, they will be there to help you and support you. So just go and tell either of them right away. They will just be happy that you told them.

    I myself told my dad first, only because he was the first one available =) It was a very big releif having someone to talk to, so its is STRONGLY suggested!

    Good luck with everything!
    All the best,

      Why don't you just tell which ever parent you see next?

        Ditto. Either one will be glad to help, so whoever you see first, let him or her know.
