    If your teenage daughter reported “Mom, I’m pregnant” what would you do?

    Mothers have to contend with this often. How do parents handle daughters with unplanned pregnancies in the family?

    I'd tell her that no matter what she decided to do, I'd be there for her. Going through a pregnancy is hard enough without being forced to marry someone you don't love, or to abort a child you want.

    Love is much more important than honor.

      Yours seems to be a "I'll be here with you no matter what" stand.

      Yes, it is. I'd get a granchild to love! I've already had to say it to my oldest, but she turned out not to be pregnant.

      I agree, especially since I got pregnant at 18 and I see what a blessing my son was for my family. I could never force my child into a bad marriage or to kill my grandchild because they feel pressured.

      I totally agree. I hope that I would be like this too, supporting her in whatever she decided to do. Tbh I would probably find it hardest if she chose to have an abortion which she might regret later, but I do believe in "your body, your choice".

    I'd support her, and then I'd want the father to support that baby. too many teens don't understand the LIFE CHANGING consequences of sex.
    Especially teenage boys....

      Boys seem to mature slowly compared to girls

    Many teenage pregnancies occur because of unprotected sex. In many households, there is no thorough and complete discussion regarding sex. Many parents stress the prohibitive aspects of sex. They are extremely loathe to mention any type of safe sex... read more

    Support and love her. She is going to be a mom the best thing you can do is be hers. She needs you now more than ever and your role in her life and pregnancy is crucial in determining how she will deal with it. You don't have to be proud of her decision but she is your daughter and you need to be there for her. Not only that, but that child is your grandkid. If nothing else step up and be supportive for him/her. It would be hard but together you could get through it and make it into a beautiful life for yourselves, your daughter and your grandchild.
