Well since you can't legally drop out until you are 16 no I wouldn't.

He'll no. I would do what I could to help her out, offer her babysitting, etc., but she would be finishing school on time. She is far less likely to complete school if she waits.

no I don't think that it would pay off for either of them in the long term. I would support her if she were capable and dedicated enough to do an online highshool.

Wow. Why? So she can continue to pave the road to her horrible future with stupid decisions?  If you have not done the preparing and planning to make it possible to be a sahm, it is bad parenting to be one just because you want to be a full time 'mommy'.  Just ugh. The whole idea of this is just... Ugh.

Why can't she just finish school? Or at least get a GED 

And encourage her to get higher education to better her and the child's life in the long run

No. She is welcome to stay in home as long as she is working and attend school. If she is mature enough to drop out and be a full time mom then she can gave her own home to. Bring a SAHM is a privilege for working hard and being able to afford it.

Quoting OwlNuggets:

There's other options besides dropping out.

Online virtual academies are life-savers for teenager moms.

I know ALL about that.



I agree!
