Going off of the future thread I started thinking about what my reaction would be if Edie came home pregnant as a teen/young adult. I think I'd be shocked and disappointed but I'd still support her in whatever decision she made. Hopefully this won't happen and she'll be 25 and married and own a home before having kids but it's interesting/terrifying to think about.
What do you think you'd do/what would your reaction be if your daughter came home and told you she was pregnant as a teen? or what if your son got someone else pregnant young?
I would be disappointed in her at first like my mom was with me but I would be there for Gracelynn no matter what she decided to do. I would want her child's father to be there for them but if he decided to run i would stand behind her even more. I wouldn't let her do it all alone. If my parents kicked me out or whatever I don't know what I would have done. They have been my rock and without them I would have been lost.
I'd support her, struggle to see how any parent wouldn't support their own child, whether it's what you wanted for them or not. At the end of the day it's not about what you want as a parent, sometimes there will be times when I guess we have to bite our tongue and just be there for them
If they weren't in a position to support the child themselves I'd be disappointed in that more than anything .
Try to hide any shock or disappointment so that he didn't feel alienated and support him and his GF in everything and make sure he supported her equally. If it was possible I'd also support them financially until they'd finished their education if that's what they wanted to do. I can't see it happening though as I've always assumed he'll be gay.
