What if she got pregnant...again?

Posted by   + Show Post

 Scenario:

Your daughter gets pregnant at 15 and decides to keep the baby. You support her and let her know that you expect her to be more careful next time and to raise her baby.

She gets pregnant again six months later. She is still in school, but still having unprotected sex and wants to keep the baby. Do you decide to keep on supporting her?

And for those who do decide to support her, would you support her again if she got pregnant a third time before her 18th birthday?

How far does your support system go in terms of teen pregnancy? How many pregnancies until enough is enough, and you decide to not keep on supporthing her? Keep in mind that as the parent, you will be bearing the majority of the financial burden.

I would still support her, but I would be demanding an IUD or some sort of birth control other than the pill.

Her hard headed, hot between the legs, wouldn't be hanging out, no more. I would be applying for, all type of financial assistance for her. And housing.

I would HELP, not SUPPORT. She would be working and helping financially. I would do what I could to make sure the babies were taken care of though, it isn't their fault.

One is fine, two is taking advantage and definitely pushing it. I was 15 when I had dd and I'm grateful for my dads support but I never took advantage of him. I did everything I could to care for my child. And I'm finally pregnant with my second after 7 long years! Living on my own since I was 19. So yes, two and up is definitely a problem.
