I was afraid they would say something to embarrass me

Hi everyone,

I'm writing about how I had to interview my parents in front of a large audience.

I'd like to say:

"Before I asked these questions I was afraid my parents would say something to embarrass me."

How is:

"Prima di fare queste domande avevo paura che i miei genitori dicessero qualcosa per imbarrazzarmi"

Any help would be great. Thank you. :D

    Prima di fare (better: porre) queste domande avevo paura che i miei genitori dicessero qualcosa che potesse imbarazzarmi (mind the spelling, just one r).

    ...qualcosa per imbarazzarmi would be: something with the purpose of embarrassing
