Well, welcome to all four of you, it is good to have you aboard.

It is, although you're doing pretty good if you're out to your close friends and family. Hopefully Polyamory.com can be a sort of support system for you. Are you out to anyone at your places of work?

Whatever support would be the most helpful. If you're looking for ideas about how to frame the conversation, you might tell him that the four of you are very close friends, and you just want to answer any questions he might have. It's not automatic that you would tell your 11-year-old about your sex life, but it's up to you, especially if he comes out and asks. As the parents, you have the prerogative about what you'll say and how you'll say it.

Anyway, I hope you won't hesitate to post any thoughts, questions, or concerns that you may have.

With wishing you well,
Kevin T.
