How would you feel if your child's teacher were pregnant and not married? Or an unwed mother?

This is in regards to a more urban public school with no religious affiliation. Middle school grades 6-8. The teacher is in a relationship with the father but they are not married yet. Teacher is 24 years old. When asked about her situation, the teacher only responds to students, faculty, and parents by saying 'yes I am pregnant and engaged' so that parents can decide how to handle talking to their kids about an unwed mother. What are your thoughts and concerns as parents?

  • Who freakin cares!? Just because they aren't married doesn't make them bad people.

  • It wouldnt' bother me. Everywhere we turn there are people pregnant and unwed. Even family members. So I would have to explain it to my children one way or another.

  • I wouldn't have any concerns. Honestly, the fact that some women get pregnant out of wedlock is not a secret from anyone I don't think, and by middle school most kids have already picked up on that fact.

  • I wouldn't be concerned. My kids know that some people aren't married, but still have babies together. I tell them that they should be married when they have kids, but I don't want them to judge others also.
