Why or why not?
I absolutely would not, if she is younger than 18. And her friends would be informed that a shower is not welcomed or condoned. I will not support my child ruining her life, and if she wants to have a baby, then she is going to learn the hard way. All baby items will be purchased second hand. She will not use name brand diapers, she will not have the newest greatest stroller, and she will breast feed. Period.
There is a light being cast on teen pregnancy these days that makes it look so easy. My daughter will know what it is like to struggle, and she will learn to make the best of the cards she has been dealt.
**ETA-- I would be supportive, to a point. But I would also make damn sure that SHE takes care of her child, not me. She would be responsible for making sure she has childcare, and that she finishes school, and works. If she is 18 thats a different thing. She is an adult, and the US government deems it fit for her to make her own decisions. As long as she graduates high school, what she does with her life after that is on her.
Quoting lanceandhailey: Yes, what's done is done. Now she needs family support.

No. I would not.
yup- means less i have to buy!
Quoting SevysMomma:Yes, of course! Who cares how old she is - every mother to be deserves something as great as a baby shower. Just because she is young doesn't mean the child should not be welcomed.
