  • Support her, and I would think that I didn't do something right along the way. Whats done is done and she would still be my child (same if my boys got someone pregnant).

  • I would never kick my child out period. I would have her make a choice as to what she is going to do with the baby abortion/adoption/keep it. After she has made her option on her own its hers to make then we will stand by her in that choice & help her along. She opts to abort I will attend the appointment (although I wouldnt personally want this), adoption we will find a good faimly along with her, keep it we will help with the baby while making sure she is a good mom to that child as well.

  • I've jsut been watching alot of teen mom, 16 and pregnant and I can't believe how some of the parents treat their daughter because her only crime was getting pregnant. I understand how irresponsible that may seem, but that doesn't make a teenager a criminal for doing what we all did at that age, which was have sex and they pay the price for it by getting pregnant. So I don't understand why parents get so up in arms when their child gets pregnant. It isn't a reflection on their parenting skills. Raging hormones in teenagers is common, it's THEIR responsibility to know about safety sex and pregnancy prevention. THat's not something you can coach them through as they do it.
