My 15 Year old cousin... UPDATE

My little cousin will be 15 next month and is already on birth control, she came to me today telling me she wants a baby... she is convinced it is so easy b/c I was a teen parent and I did so well with it and her sister was 18 when she had her first baby and she is doing great and blah blah blah. I tried telling her that yes i love my boys but i wish they would have came a hell of a lot later in life... how do i convince someone who is soooooo convinced that babies are easy and simple to handle that they arent and her momma and daddy need to beat her ass for asking about such things... im stuck here.. what do i do now

 

>>>I messaged my aunt about this situation, I feel like I let my cousin down but I dont want her to go through the hell I had to go through as a teen parent. I know its the pot calling the kettle black but in all honesty i wasnt trying to get pregnant and she is..

She's having some emotional problems. Her parents need to get her into therapy to get to the root of the problem.

Not so sure. Tell her parents?

She needs one of those babies that mimic real babies, like they would use in parenting classes. Give her one of those for a week.

Honestly, that's what it sounds like. It happens...I had mine at 17.

Let her watch an actual child birth video? First time i seen one i almost passed out lol Then explain to her all that you go through during pregnancy and after it. Maybe that will change her mind

Tell her she can make ALOT more money if she goes to college and then has a baby later.

Also remind her there's no guarantee the baby willl be healthy. It could have alot of special needs.

I agree, make her babysit. Is one of your children still a baby that wakes up through out the night? If so make her stay the night and wake her up every time the baby gets up. Make her feed and change the baby.
