Me and my daughter are very close but for the last 6 weeks she has been in New Mexico with her father, but is due home tomorrow. I got a call yesterday off her to tell me that she thinks she's pregnant and she's taken a test. I mean what the hell? I've talked to her every evening. I just don't understand. And I feel as if I've failed as a mother. She's 13. I wanted a good life for her. What should I advise her to do? She's just a baby...Please. The only details she gives me are the fact that the boy is 14 and he's her new boyfriend. We've talked about sex. Talked about not doing it until you're ready/contraception etc. I guess now I have to deal with this though. Advice please.Answer Question

It's so hard for teens these days. So many kids are having sex at such a young age. There is pressure from boys, & girls. and a lot of the times kids will just do what all the other kids are doing because it seems normal since everyone else is doing it too. Did her test come out positive for sure? Man, your in a tight spot. I personally would have my daughter get an abortion, but i know that a lot of people are against that. Maybe talking to her EVERY night, made it hard for her to come to you when she became sexually active. Maybe she felt as if she was disappointing you, so she didn't want to come to you about it. How is she getting alone time w/ her boyfriend? This is also something to worry about, 13 year olds have no business being alone w/ a boy. And not just any boy, a boy that wants to get in her pants. My daughter is not aloud to date until she is 17, that is out house rule. She CANNOT be alone w/ boys.
