Your daughter is pregnant. Impossible? No. Despite your guidance and support, your teen may make choices that lead her down this path.
Your son is pregnant. Impossible? No. A young man bears equal responsibility for an unplanned pregnancy.
What do you do?
- Find your own strength and a sense of calm. Pregnancy is not an ending, but the beginning of a difficult path. Your child needs your wisdom, support, and resources.
- Discuss the options. Provide your teen with information and resources on parenting, adoption, and abortion. Allow the two teens involved to make a decision, and then support them.
Did you know?
If your daughter has had unprotected intercourse within the past 72 hours and does not wish to become pregnant, “morning-after” or emergency contraception pills are available over-the-counter from a pharmacy.
