  • I think it depends on the guy. Is he otherwise a good guy? Does he now know how to use a condom?? If yes and yes, give him the benefit of the doubt. What can you really do to stop her, anyway? If you say no, she'll likely do it behind your back instead of with your knowledge, which is even worse. It's not like she's going to marry the guy. Just make sure she knows about birth control and safe sex!!

  • Hell no. Now if he was 19 with no baby I wouldn't have an issue. But I don't want my daughter playing "mommy" to a baby and thinking she will like to be a real mommy or deal with that baby mama drama.

  • I would not be ok with it. I would express that but I would not over push it the more you say no, the more you push them towards the unwanted item or person. I would be truthful with her in all things involving sex

  • I wouldn't want my daughter to start out her life with a ready made family, but there is really not much I could do to prevent it, if she wanted the relationship she would find a way to have it anyway. I would advice her against it and ultimately it would be her decision.
