Filling out W-9 when your under 18?

Hi! I’ve read many forum pages saying that you can sell and earn at a minimum age of 13. Anyway, I’m turning 14 in only a few days and decided I wanted to get started on Online business. Maybe I sound stupid, but when I was creating my first gig, I was asked to fill out a W-9 form. However, being only 13 years of age, I have no idea how I should fill this out. Is there a way to bypass this, to me it sounds like some pretty adult stuff. Or do I just have my parents sign it?

Edit: I am a US citizen, and checked the box identifying as such.

You do need to fill it out, yes, but you can have your parents help you do so.
