  • In my opinion, it is too late to do anything....... at this point I think the best thing that you can do is to Love her, Support her and help her in the best way possible. I think that helping her find a way to finish school, find a job and raise her baby would be a gift that she would apprecaite. She may not see right away that what you are doing is wonderful, but trust me, years down the road she will Thank You for being such a supportive and helpful Mother.

  • Be there for her. Teach her its time to grow up. Help her get ready... don't do all the work for her though, just give her the support and guidance she will need... stress EDUCATION...

  • Love her, supprt her and guide her. My daughter had her first at 18 and I just stood by her an still support her and guide her when she ask for my advice. Just know that you have raised her the best you know how and Pray that she does the same with her child.

  • My mom had me when she ws 17. she did not have alot of help from her parents, but she did it. she always says that she wished her mom would have been there for answer question and not act so disintrested in her or her pregnancy! I would say that it would eb a huge shock and disappointment as a parent but as someone already said it is too late to do much of anything at this point. Tell her how you feel at the beginning and then love her and support her! stress stress the importance of education and help her to finish highschool and college!!!!
