use to yes they would stay and do the right things etc but as time has gone by those ways of thinking are not part of society anymore really. most of the time they will not stick around you may be lucky and they might at first. or they may leave but help out or they will split and you cant find them. the thing is though they may stay and things maybe great but as life goes on and you grow you grow in different directions and your thoughts and dreams change and usally they are not the same so in the end it doesnt work cause you were to young and not ready for that lasting marriage. in that case it is no ones fault it is just life. in most cases though it doesnt even get that far. usally the guy splits and the parents are left holding the bag of broken heart pieces and helping take care of that little one that had no say in the matter. you may get lucky and the guys parents are willing to help but usally you are on your own. even if the guy stays though just think ok i am young now i have a kid. who is going to watch the kid and pay for that person to watch the kid so i can go to the mall, go to school, oh theres a dance i want to go to. who is going to wake up every few hours for a year to rock the baby to sleep and still get up and go to work and school? there are so many things to think about other then will he stay. even if he does who is going to stay and care for the child while you are able to still be a kid yourself.

Been there done that! Tell you daughter that most guys her age are not ready for commitment or parenthood. I got pregnant as a teen, when I told my boyfriend the first words out of his mouth were, "It's not mine". And bye-bye he went...leaving me to deal with all the consequences. Am I bitter, a little. Did I learn a lesson? Most definitly. While have a baby seems like it will be all fun and like playing house, it isn't. It is tough, especially when you are alone and struggling to figure out where you are going to get the money to buy the next bag of diapers. You friends will also eventually leave you behind, because while you have to be mommy and daddy to a baby, they want to party and hang out. Ok, sorry, I got on a rant there. Just ask her wait until the time is right. God Bless you for being a good mom.
