If I think my parents must know about something, I would gladly share it to them but in instances when I know that it might cause them anxiety or stress, I try to solve things first and make the narrating a little bit funny. They might be anxious but they have the right to know so either it was said too soon or later, it doesn't matter as long as you tell them yourself.

I stopped telling my mother about things that worry me when I was pretty young. Not that she's a bad parent or person, but I just realized very young that she wasn't the best at fixing problems or my worries. My mom tends to be very anxious herself, on the occasions I did tell her something was concerning me she'd be apt to agree with me that something was about to go wrong rather than comfort my (irrational) concerns.

I too same, but tell to a good friend that who knows you & your family very well, he/she can give you a good advice and always any problem tell to that person only.
