What would you do if your 16 y/o or younger daughter came to you and told you she was pregnant? How do you think you will be able to handle this news?

I'd be upset but getting mad won't help the situation. Getting her to the doctor for an exam and confirmation of the pregnancy would be my first step. Being supportive of her and her decisions would be my main goal.

I'm kinda freaking out about my own pregnancy - I can even imagine being that young and dealing with this!

OMG where is the $550 a month for day care going to come from???

I would try and be there for her the best I could. My sister got pregnant at 16 and my family almost fell apart. Mostly my dad he went through a lot that year. I was getting married, my 16 y.o sister was pregnant and my grandma lived with us while she was dying of cancer. It was a hard year. I would make sure she knew that i would support her decisions but it would take me a little bit to pull up my boot straps and put my big girl pants on. lol. I would also let her know this is her child but we are all pregnant the whole family not just her.
