Today,I just found out that my 16 year old son's girlfriend is pregnant! I am falling apart! This is something I never thought would happen to my son. He is still going to school,and working 2 jobs,but could you tell me what I can do,other than support morally and help the best way i know how. Confused In U.C.
I think the best thing to do, like Ingi said, is to keep the lines of communication open with your son. Make sure you give him as much support as you can and that you'll love him & be there for him no matter what. Good luck!
Definitly support him so that he feels he can come to you for help at anytime. It must have been scary to tell you thats forsure. I couldn't imagine. Its tough. Just stand by him, and help him be the best dad he can be.
From a teenagers point of view i back up keeping communication open and suporting him no matter what he chooses and remember this is
your grandchild too. Both me and my partner were 15 when i got pregnant and 16 when i gave birth, this will be a tough time for him because he has to grow up overnight so just make sure he knows his mum is there for him
I know if this happened to me, I would want my mom to be supportive and not judgmental. I realize it's difficult not to worry since they are both so young and you have the experience to know what a difficult road they have ahead.
But, as the others said, being able to communicate with him and his gf is very important. I also hope you encouraged him to take responsibility for the situation.
im 17, and im facing the possibility of being pregnant. Its very important that you remember that this doesnt make him or her a bad person. Its SO important that you dont judge either of them and you keep communication open. My boyfriend is in the military and I know that i feel terrible, i feel alone and i know that if i really am pregnant my parents are going to flip. they're not going to be understanding, or nice, or communicate with me. They're going to kick me out and im going to have absolutely nowhere to go. So it seems to me like you're doing a great job so far, just make sure that BOTH of them know you're going to support them, because right now thats what i wish i had. SUPPORT and someone to talk to.
