If your teen told you they were pregnant??

If your teenager came home tommorow and told you she was pregnant how would you react? I would give her lots of love and support. No one wants this to happen to their child but once it happens you can’t undo it. It will be a very emotional time for your teen and they need you to be there for them. Of course, the thing to REALLY do is to try to keep it from happening in the first place. But sometimes it happens despite the parents best efforts.

If I were in the situation, most probably I would drop unconscious LOL!! or if I were to able to carry the situation, I might go out and hunt for the man and demand that they get married or that he gives support. My daughter will surely get a mouthful of scolding from me. I really can't imagine it. Actually, I happened to see youngsters acting so physically intimate with each other in our neighborhood and I can't help but go near them and tell them to stop or else I'm going to see their parents about what I saw them doing.

My daugther is only two years old... so it would be years before that sort of situation becomes possible... but i think i would probably be angry at her at first... it might come to a point that i will not talk to her during the duration of her pregnancy... or i might be slightly happy at the thought of having a grand daughter... i just do not know...

I'd probably react the way parents would react. Get angry at first and be disappointed. In a way, I should be blamed why it happened to her. Since it already happened, then there's nothing else to do but support her pregnancy. The child has no fault in this. I will not tell her to get married to the father if she doesn't want (specially if she's too young) because it's not the solution to the problem. We would focus on the child that will be brought to this world. I still believe every child is a blessing. I would also encourage my daughter to still finish her studies despite having the baby. It would ensure a better future for the child anyway.
