i am 17 oldest of 4 soon 5 and...

my 16 year old sister wants to get pregnate and i want to find a way to help her realize that she needs to wait til she is ready. can you help? i have decide to right a book, from price of hospital bills to toddler years, to basically all about getting pregnate... and the pregnacy i want her to be able to read this and realize what it would take for her to become a mom, that can support her baby if she got pregnate. i just want to show her that its teen time. not mommy time, and how she will want to have have waited, and lived while she could. i don't know how that sounds but it seem's mean. a little bit. but she isn't ready she just turned 16 as of November 17th 08
Thanks for any help you may give, if you'd like with your answer leave a name or tell me you want to be in my book. i will have refrences thank you :)

  • There is a girl at my school who is 14. she got preg when she was 13. & her baby came out deformed where she was so tiny. There is a higher chance of deformities, and problems to the baby in a teen pregnancy than a adult pregnancy. Beleive me I heard all about it when I got pregnant at 16. lol. just keep giving excuses to her, and talk her out of it.

  • *Pregnant*

    I think there a lot of books out there to help without having to write one of your own, but good luck if you do!

  • Why does she want a baby? Is she trying to keep a guy or something? Because that sure as hell doesn't work!

  • Tell her that if she really has love in her heart for a baby, then she should be smart enough to realize that she would be causing harm to her baby, and love does not cause harm. There are many medical reasons why having a baby so young is dangerous. Google it, then show her.

  • i think teens that wnt a baby so bad dnt realize the baby grows up and kids are very hard to raise its not like playin with a doll her life will be over and its not fair to make a baby suffer like that she needs to wait my best friends daughter is 15 and had a baby and when she brought the baby hm frm the hosp she was livin w/ her boyfriend and her mom wud have to go get the baby in the middle of the night cuz she dndnt know what to do teenagers dont have the patience and have no business having babies telll her to wait she will be 20 in 4 yrs that will be her before she knows it and then maybe she can think about it, hses barely even old enough 2 get a job who will buy diapers and clothes?

  • Get her one of those new electronic "Babies" that will wake you up every 2 hours to be fed and cries everytime it needs it's diaper changed and stuff. Does she realize that she won't be able to sleep late or go out with her friends she want get more than 2 hours sleep at a time for the first few months, she will rarely ever have any time alone. She won't be able to afford new clothes or a nice new cellphone or computer! She won't even be able to go to the bathroom by herself most of the time for the first few years! Her babies needs will have to come first!

  • Is your mom having another baby? PERFECT! Make her "shadow" your mother! Make her get out of bed every time your mom does. Make her do EVERYTHING your mom does for the baby! Show her every DIME of money that is spent on supporting that baby! Make her change every diaper or a least be there for every diaper change make her clean up the baby barf! Make her do Ever bit of it!
