you should be fined, jailed or labeled for child abuse if you...
let your child get pregnant before they leave home!
i think if more parents were held accountable then teen pregnancies would decline.
there is no reason for it if parents are doing their jobs right.
either bring your child up right or be prepared to watch them 24/7 till they are on their own two feet!

EDIT: first i am not a troll. second i understand this statement is kind of extreme. my point is i really do think parents can do better with their kids if they try. i think too many parents use the whole "o kids will do it either way" as an excuse to be lazy. plus most parents do not have open communication with their kids which leads to secrets and lies.
i do not have teenagers yet. i do have young children and i homeschool. i plan to homeschool till they are older maybe even through highschool. my husband plans on having a security system installed so when a window or door open at all it will make a dinging noise. i plan on watching my kids very closely.
what i dont understand is most parents can't expect people to believe that they didnt know their own kids well enough to notice something was off or to notice changes in their child when they crossed that lined into haveing sex. if i suspected it i would jump in and find a way to keep it from happening again.(hopefully my kids will wait till they are self sufficiant)
to the person who said who will support the teen mom and baby if the grand parent is put in jail the answer is simple. the state or the father will support them. thats how it currently works anyways.
single moms do not go far. its so sad. they live in poverty and get no where.
for me this is something that really bothers me. when i was a teenager my own mother tried to get me to have sex and get pregnant from the age of 14. thankfully somehow i knew better and i did not end up geting pregnant until after i was married. my sister however was not so lucky. she was talked into having sex with a married man at 16 (yes by our mother afte i left home) then my mother black mailed him for money and electronics. then we she was 18 my mother talked her into having a baby. (which she was not ready for) after having the baby she got into drugs and now has 3 babies with 3 different guys. she will probably never be ok. and will always struggle. its not fair. for this is why i feel parents need to be held more accountable.
