No. Just because the horse got out of the barn is no reason to leave the door open. She's still a minor, so no on boyfriend sleepovers.
Not in my house. At 17, she is still a minor, pregnant or not. There will be no sleepovers in this house until she at least 18 and even that is iffy. I am not against sex before marriage, but IMO, if my daughter is old enough to have sex, she's old enough to find her own place to have it in.
I'm an older Mom. I'm 41 and my youngest are 2 yo twins. I've even said that if one of them messes up and gets pregnant (or if my older kid gets someone pregnant) a little too soon, I'm not gonna be mad because if they wait to have kids like me, then my grandparenting years are gonna be limited.
That said, however, no. If one of them did get knocked up at a young age, it would not just become a free for all. If they got married, they would be allowed to live in our home if necessary - especially if finishing school. But jacking up and getting pregnant doesn't automatically allow you the adult card. In fact, my pregnant teenage daughter would be grounded until she learned to use her head better than her heart. She'll need that raising a kid from a young age. Same with my son.
Sleepover? Lol, he would be moving in with us. :)(I come from a VERY family-oriented family.)
I don't know. I guess it would depend on the guy. I mean honestly, I would not condone a teen pregnancy and I would want to stress that by NOT letting boyfriend sleep over.
But at the same time, when I was 17/18, my boyfriends parents let me sleep over at him house even though I was not pregnant.
