  • Kick his/her a$$ No, seriously. i certainly wouldn't be raising the kid. If they did the deed, they can take responsibility or give the child up for adoption. I would be all up in his/her butt to grow up and care for their baby. If he/she was living in my house, I would MAKE them.

  • Well... I would take care of the baby! Yes, it's not my job but it's still my grandchild and if she wants to be irresponsible then let her. She will be missing out... Now, if she is living in my house, then she WILL own up to the responsibility of this life she created. I would always help though... If it was my son, I would kick his butt. He needs to be a man!

  • I would take care of the baby but I would also work hard at teaching my Child responsibility. It is very common for this to happen. As Foster Parents we have gotten many placements that have been taken by the Grandparents. There are so many GP raising their GC in Today's Society. We need to do better at teaching our children that there are consequences for every action and they have to own up to that. If it was my Daugther we would have a lot of heart to heart talks and I would be making her live with me. She would be waking up when I wake up and etc. If she didn't take responsbility then she would not be living with me. If it were my Son, I would kick his tail.

  • Going through this right now. I have had my granddaughter since she was 2 weeks old. Mother & Father turned their backs and they were even married (for 1 year). Parents separated and went their separate ways. Daughter and baby moved in with me and hubby and refused to take care of baby. Stayed out late, sometimes overnight with different guys, etc.....After 8 months of that, we kicked her out, but not without giving her options first. Options that she refused. We now have guardianship and are raising a beautiful baby. She will be 1 yr old this month. So the answer to your question is that I would take the baby and raise it. The baby is family and didn't ask to be born. My hubby and I are 50 years old. I work a full time job and he does not work, which makes it great, he is the mom and I am the dad....LOL.

  • If that happened I would get legal custody so the child would have a responsible parent.

  • I am praying I never have to be in this situation but I would be supportive in either situation. Good luck.

  • I would care for the child, but i am confident that that wont happen, the best tool to prevent is giving them a good relationship with God...IMHO

  • Never would happen! But just for grins, I would take care of the child and ride their ass from here to next easter until they did what they should do!
