How will they handle it. The grandparents will take care of the child. they aren`t even old enough to get jobs. So they can`t. In terms of the future, Well if he hasn`t learned to put a hat on his jimmy he needs his azz whoop. If I were his dad I buy him a lawn mower and tell him to get to it. he wanted to act like a man so now it`s time to be a man. Tough love.He needs to learn that every action has a reaction.

Well that is very young to become a parent but I also know from my own life that I became a mother at 16 years old. I have no regrets, I mean I realize there might be somethings that I might have missed out on but in the end to bring up a child to me is a blessing. It is hard and is not easy but with help of family and learning to trust others and work on ourselfs things can be accomplished. It is very young at only 13 but hey if they are old enough to produce than let them be responiable for their child. Like I said it could be a blessing in diguse. happy mylotting and have a good day!

Things like this happen all the time. I dont think that their is a way to stop it. These to young parents are going to have to give up alot of their life right now and buckle down and take care of their baby. and ill bet grandma, and grandpa is going to be a big part in helping to raise this new baby. My kids were not aloud to date, or be alone with a boy, or girl...until they were 16.

no matter how hard you try to warn them about these kind of things, at the end ignorant kids tend to ignore everything they've been taught and do whatever they please without looking ahead at the possible consequences, and that is the result. but honestly, I just can't imagine an actual thirteen year old even thinking about these kind of things. I remember when I was thirteen all that ran through my mind was caring for my studies and playing sports and games and whatever, nothing of these sorts -w- the moment they turn into actual teens they start doing that kind of things?! Jeez, the world really is going on a downhill fall for sure

well i would blame the parents of both the kids... i do not understand how kids can even show interest in physical intimacy at such a young age... kids of this age are supposed to be more interested in playing sports and many other activities... Well, they can either give the child up for adoption or the parentns of either child can take up the child as one of their own... I cannot think of any other solution.. And to avoid such future situations, be good parents... know to control your kid properly...

the juvenile parents would have to step up to the plate and do what needs to be done to raise their child the right way. It would mean more sacrifices and effort on their part. It would also mean getting as much help as they could get and I'm sure the parents of the juvenile parents would be more than willing to help their children and their new grand child. This would mean a lot of hard work for the new parents and their respective families but it's certainly not impossible to raise the child well despite the adverse and difficult conditions. The only way to avoid the same thing from happening again is to instill correct and proper values to our children and to learn from the mistakes of others. Sounds cliche but it's the only way. goodluck to them and have a good one.

I think this young couple need some helps from therapist and get educated of their responsibility of wanting to be a parent at such a young age, they are just boy and girl not adults. I am sure their parent will probably going to provide helps and financial aids most of the time, if not, then they must be responsible for the baby.

i know, it is very alarming to know that children are having children now. almost all of the parents are struggling to provide the needs of their children. but in this case, how are they going to provide for their own child. maybe, the campaign is not effective. parents should be the one to explain carefully and explain really4x carefully. i hope, this will serve as a lesson to every parents and kids out there.

Hi dio, I saw that news on Tv and this is something bizzare. R these guys insane? I mean @ 13 i was so innocent.. well iam still innocent but to do somtthing like that was out of my brain totally. We certainly living in 21st century where anthing is possible. I remember few months back a guy got pregnant that was in the news and now a 13 yr old dad, lol i wonder what next?? Yes i also believe that their grand ma and grand papa has to take care of them. They have to think that they have one more baby and have to reaise them or u never know these days as he is getting famous he may get a sponsor from some where! Cheers, Tutul
