I will support her if imy daughter was pregnant

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

If my daughter (soon to be a teen) came home at age 15-16 and told me she was pregnant. i wouldn't kick her out but inform her of all her options. If she decides to keep the baby i would ensure she finishes school and has at least a part time job. School's here have daycare for teen mother's which is free. she will step up and do the right thing for her child. I could never throw my daughter or grandchild out on their asses. I don't understand how some of you ladies can say you would...Love shouldn't stop just because your child didn't grow up the way YOU planned. Shit happens you learn to deal with it or your going to miss out on something amazing.

This, exactly. I don't understand it either :/

Quoting EvilAsh:

I don't understand why schools should have daycares. That's just sad. It's like they're condoning teen pregnancy! 

I also don't understand those parents that abandon their kids because of a poor choice. I would be there for my kids too no matter what happened.

I couldn't say how I would act with any sort of certainty. I would not put her out though.

They aren't condoning it. Just more and more teens are having babies and the school's would Rather see these kids finish school then drop out and live off the system

I would support my son and his pregnant girlfriend too if that situation ever arises.

Agree! It was hard for my parents to accept it but they have supported me 100%. And now they LOVE seeing their grandson and will take him for the afternoon just because they want to. Without my parents I would probably be going nowhere.

I would feel the same way, but I would be making it clear to her that getting pregnant is not what we want to happen in this house. I would be getting her on birth control the second I even thought she was sexually active, hell maybe even before that. 

I will never understand the parents that turn their back on their child when they need them the most.

Because young moms living off welfare have a huge effect on the econom. Better for them to finish school and make something of themselves so they can become a contributing member of society.

I completely agree. It would break my heart if it happened but that is still my daughter and granddaughter. I would want to make sure they had the best chance in life.
