If my daughter (soon to be a teen) came home at age 15-16 and told me she was pregnant. i wouldn't kick her out but inform her of all her options. If she decides to keep the baby i would ensure she finishes school and has at least a part time job. School's here have daycare for teen mother's which is free. she will step up and do the right thing for her child. I could never throw my daughter or grandchild out on their asses. I don't understand how some of you ladies can say you would...Love shouldn't stop just because your child didn't grow up the way YOU planned. Shit happens you learn to deal with it or your going to miss out on something amazing.
I don't have a daughter right now, but if my son were to get someone pregnant, I'd support them both. My son WOULD be working to help at least some financially. My son WOULD step up and help out with the child, no if ands or buts. Takes 2 to have a baby, he will be helping in raising the child. I'm a single mom, my son's dad hasn't helped with anything and has never seen him. I won't allow him to have a child and not do his part as a father if he's still living under my roof
I don't really know. I don't think I will ever know unless I am in that unfortunate situation... but I do hope I would stand by my child. I know I would probably be upset. I hope I wouldn't say things I don't mean that would hurt her, but I wouldn't be nice about it. It's just something you don't really know until you're there. I like to think I wouldn't kick her out, but at the same time I wouldn't cushion the situation. She would have to take care of her baby.
I agree. When I got pregnant at 15 I went to a "homeschool" type thing, and took care of DD. I worked for a few weeks, but my Dad died and we started getting SS, so I quit.
What my Mom did for me, would be exactly what I'd do for my child.

I don't get how parents would just be so quick to throw their child and grandchild on the streets. I was a teen mother and thank god my mother was there for me. She wasn't happy and didn't talk to me for a few months but she was there for the birth and cut the cord of her granddaughter.
