Would attending a friends daughter's baby shower (who is 15) be supporting the friend or supporting teen pregnancy?

  • I guess, first and foremost, it would be supporting your friend during a hard time.

  • I think it would be supporting the baby that is about to come into this world :)

  • I don't think so! It's something that is already done so what can you do about it. Go and support your friend!! ;o) I think once the daughter has her child, it will teach her a lesson.

  • I think what is done is done. I would support my friend & go & bring a nice gift for the baby. BUT, if I had a daughter around the same age, I would NOT attend with her, I feel that would be promoting negative behavior to my daughter.

  • It would be supporting a friend at that time. The deed is already done. There's a helpless baby involved now and the baby shower is for THE BABY. Not the mom.

  • I would go! That teen needs all the support she can get right now. I am pretty sure she knows the mistakes she has made but she cannot go back in time and change that. She has to take responsiblity of her actions, and may need help doing so. Whats wrong with showing her love and support eventhough she made a bad choice in having sex at a young age.

  • I feel like if I went I would showing my support for my friend, her child and her future grandchild. It's got to be a trying time for your friend and her daughter and I'm sure they would appreciate you attending the shower.
