I just found out today that my teen son (17) had sex with his girlfriend (16) who now might be pregnant. Apparently she went to a clinic and took a test that came back negative. However, she's been experiencing symptoms- but has also had cramping and light bleeding. She's going to see a doctor for blood tests, etc... But this is freaking me out and I know that I can't freak out in front of my son, who has no idea that I have found out.
I plan to sit down with him and have a talk, but I am having so much trouble accepting all of this. This is not the life that I wanted for him. He is so smart and has such a bright future and I just feel like this is going to make things SO hard for him. It breaks my heart.
How do I keep it together and help him, without showing him how angry and disappointed I feel inside? I know that it's critical for me to be there for him, to support him and love him. It's just so hard to contain the urge to scream at him.
I need advice- how did others handle this?
