Nope.

the only part of her life she would need to change right away is her social life. She needs school to be a good parent, she needs to continue with as much normalcy as possible. Girls who finish school are less likely to get pregnant again, opposed to girls who drop out and end up pregnant within 2 years.

i have been a sahm most of my momma years, I wouldn't be opposed to helping while she is in school. I would do the same for my sons. Having a baby is not a good thing at such a young age, but it's not the end of life. My husband was a teen dad and he got a job and got them their own place just before graduation, he worked his as soft and is a great dad.

First off, every mom is a full time mother, you don't stop being a mother when you go to school or work. Second, no. She would be going to school, and if she did drop out, she would be working, she would not be living off of us and staying home all day. I had my son when I was 15 and my dad said that given the circumstances, what I chose to do with him, if I wanted to give him up, that was entirely up to me, but I would be continuing school and then going on to college, end of question. I graduated valedictorian and will be a senior in college next year. Education is important no matter what you do with the rest of your life. Being a stay at home mom doesn't mean you should be uneducated.

I wouldn't care what she did,  if she kept the baby she would no longer be living in my house!

No, she would need to complete high school by whatever means necessary, whether that be homeschooling, virtual school, a community ed dept, or traditional school. You don't get to just stay home and become a drain on society. You overcome and learn from your poor choices.

That depends on your state actually.

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

No I would not, she could continue with hs I had several friends who decided to finish their year because they where seniors, I've known several others about your daughters age, who went to the tech/sister school to our high school who had a program for young parents or soon to be parents and their children came to school with them and where part of the early education program where other students learned how to be certified for day care/ preschool or elementary teachers.

at the very least I would require home/online school if she. Decided he wanted to be a full time sahm but never drop out!
