Sooo, yeah well I'm 16 and I might be pregnant. I need advice on how to break the news to my parents. We do not have a good relationship and I am terrified that they'll hate me and my child. My boyfriend of 9 1/2 months, also the baby's father, and I have gotten in trouble for having sex before and they forbid me from seeing him for 3 months and I'm afraid that they'll forbid us from being together and from seeing his child. How should I tell my parents that I might be pregnant? If you can give me any advice I will be appreciated.

Well, they can't forbid him from seeing his child nor can they tell you what to do after the baby is born because having a baby emancipates you as far as I understand.

Just come up with a plan and have it ready when you tell them. If they kick you out go to a police station and report it so you can't be charged as a runaway (and the people you stay with from being charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor). They may force your parents to take you back in though. But it's worth the risk.

My best advice is, if you plan to have the baby, get your plan together. Where are you going to live, with the dad or no? Will you finish school or just study for your GED? Will you go to college (since you will get a full ride plus some living expenses in your situation I STRONGLY suggest this).

Also get a job to buy baby's things.

Most important: no matter how much the dad assures you he'll be there and take care of you, and no matter what promises people make you, have a backup plan to go it alone because that baby is DEPENDING on you to be there and support it. You're done with the part of your life where you're the supported, now you are the supporter.

Best of luck.

Honey, you're going to be a mom now and have to grow up much faster than you can imagine. This is your chance to prove that you can be mature. Your parents will be hurt and worried about you, but that's because they love you.

I have no clue how to tell them because every time I go to say it I freeze up because I've had a pregnancy scare before and my mother had reacted not badly, but she said she'd kick my ass if I ever had sex again. I don't have a job and I don't have my license. I have absolutely no money and I'm scared that I'll be a horrible mother because of my family (they can be VERY harsh and my grandparents are the worse)

I would sit your mom down and tell her first nd let her tell your dad since she didn't take the scare to badly but she can't put her hands on you cuz your pregnant

I have no idea what to say though. I just cannot seem to get the word 'pregnant' out of my mouth.

I just feel bad for bringing a child into this whole mess. I don't feel like I could be a good mother because i'm so young and immature
