Best friend is 17 and pregnant


Hi, my best friend of 6 years just told be that she is pregnant. It's only been a few days since she found out. I'm in utter shock and a little disappointed... We come from Chinese background so having non-marital sex is no no, let alone a BABY. Feelings aside, I really need help on how I should support her in the time to come. If you have any advises, please please please share them with me. I will be more than grateful to you.

That's so sweet of you to care for her like that. Basically, the best thing you can do for her is be her support and shoulder to lean on. Pregnancy isn't easy, so she'll be needing the support.

Well you are doing the right thing by being supportive and not judgmental. If her parents are from China originally and not well adjusted to American culture in this regard, perhaps talking to them along with your friend would help?

She is lucky to have a friend like you. She definitely needs emotional support. I think you should talk to her parents regarding this. But I don't know how her parents would take it.
