My son has just turned 14 and came home today looking really sheepish and then broke down, turns out he got a girl pregnant and she's also 14. I don't know how to react to him. And he said that she's refusing to tell her parents. I didn't even know that he'd got a girlfriend or anything along those lines. Should I tell her parents or just talk to her and encourage her to? And how should I reprimand my son, or should I do otherwise? Thanks.Answer Question

My son got his g/f pregnant. They weren't 14...but I've been there. Talk to them both. Confirm the pregnancy. Tell them they must tell her parents. Offer to accompany them if that is something you could do. If they refuse let them know they MUST know and you will tell them if need be. There are a lot of big decisions to be made in the near future. In some states a 14 yr old can't even consent /or refuse to anything regarding a pregnancy, including a pelvic exam. Do a search for the laws of your state and pregnant minors. Punishing them is pointless. It is done and their lives are altered regardless of what they choose to do at this point. Good Luck. If you need to talk PM me.
