  • I'm not a teen mom, but I can say to just be up front and honest about it. They will find out eventually so you might as well just tell them. Who knows, maybe they already know and are waiting for you to tell them. Chances are they will be disappointed that you weren't careful.

  • There is no easy way to tell them, you are at the point where you are starting to show or will start to show so you should just sit down and talk with them. If you expect to live with them and want their help financialy and emotionally they need to know and prepare for that! It's time tell them!

  • You should have told them long before now. The best thing to do is be straight. Tell them you're pregnant, how far along you are, when you are due, who the dad is. Good Luck.

  • parents are the best resource for you right now, your mom knows more about pregnancy than you think at this point, and hon you're almost five months pregnant, you could have spent this time getting things together, saving up money and getting clothes, diapers and everything you need. the baby is coming, you need to step up and tell them for yourself and for your baby.

  • I am 25 and i had a really hard time telling my dad. I am still a dsaddys girl and i was so scared he would say something hurtful like he said about my sister when she got preg and wasnt married. But when i told him i started crying (couldnt help it i was so scared what his reaction would be) and all he said was Oh my go then herealized i was crying and i guess that made him realize that there was nothing to do except be supportive but he doesnt like the idea.

  • I'll be 19 in a hand full of days and I just found out a week ago that I'm pregnant. It was hard for my fiancee and I to tell our parents but they've gotten over it and are helping us w/ everything. Just tell them. I hope everything goes ok :)
