  • Not an option. This will make your child feel like crap the rest of her life. You are mom. You have to figure out how YOU need to change.

  • eh she is at a confusing age I was crazy at that time in my life....there is going to be rough patches but you just need to work through them. Shes your daughter and she needs you the more than anyone.

  • You can bring her to your local police department or information needed.

  • You don't have any help? Like a close friend of family member? What's wrong?

  • Why wouldn't you want your daughter again? Sounds rude, not meant to be. When you gave birth you earned a permanent role: Mother! Whether you like it or not you'll always be her momma. Try to work things out. Easier said than done!

  • If you are overwhelmed,seek help. As Moms,we are responsible for our children until they are old enough to take care of themselves. How old is your daughter? If you are feeling that overwhelmed,you need to find someone to talk to about it before you do something harmful. Not saying you would do anything on purpose,but sometimes we dont think before we act. There are alternatives for help. Start by discussing your mood and attitude with your personal physician.

    To the person who made this comment: 'you were woman enough to lie on your back'. Now that is a very intelligent sensible response to someone who obviously is looking for guidance. Im sure that helped.

  • How old is your child? Do you have any help or support? Is there someone who can watch her for you so you can get a break?

  • Is your child a teen or are you a teen parent? If you are a teen parent, contact social services and see what you need to do to place your child up for adoption. If you are the parent of a teen and are overwhelmed, I would say it's too late. If your child is out of contrrol, get counseling.

  • As a poster above me said, if you are a mom with a teen or adult child, it's probably too late! Get some counseling. If you are a teen parent with an infant, you may have post-partum depression. You also need to build a network! There are usually groups for teen parents to attend... they are usually free, and it will connect you to other teen parents (it isn't a parenting class, it's a support group). If you really just don't want your baby anymore, contact social services. Maybe look into an open adoption? Good luck and hang in there!
