    no i couldn't and wouldn't! i was a young mum pregnant at 16 and was disowned there is no way i could do that to my children. i would be upset disappointed maybe even mad but i would be there and support them, dh would be very mad maybe even tell them to leave (out of anger but not meaning it) but he would still love them and support them

    Depends, really. I mean if we're just talking about a pregnant otherwise "normal" 16 year old girl then of course I wouldn't. I'd do anything and everything I could to help her and my grandchild and the father.

    But...if my hypothetical pregnant 16 year old daughter was posing as a danger to my other child or myself (as in drug induced violence, or psychotic violence etc) then yes, I'd make other arrangements for her to live elsewhere and would try to get her the help she needed. I obviously wouldn't kick her out on to the street with no where to go.

    Nope. Would not even think about it. That is my child and grandchild I would do everything I could to help out. DF would probably want to ummm have a stern talking to fob though. But all said and done we would be supportive in every way possible.

    My life would've been a whole lot different (and cr@ppier) if my Nana had done that to my Mum...

    And I grew up knowing that if I *did* fall pregnant as a teen, my mum would support me 100%....I broke that cycle in our family though.

    I'd be there for my child and although I'd be disappointed, I'd certainly never kick them out. I never understood what that sort of thinking was meant to achieve....

    My response was to do with a "normal" teen (If there is such a thing lol)

    But if she was to put my kids or myself in danger / I'd find other arrangements.

    No way Parenting doesn't stop when they do things you don't want them to do. Infact a 16 yo would really need her parents, especially her mum.

    If that was a factor, especially if she was pregnant, I would be calling the CATT team, getting her assessed and pushing for an admission until whatever illness was affecting her was controlled.

    They told me not to cone back unless i got an abortion I was homeless for a while staying at friends places or in the park every night until my uncle let me live with him.i had no money as I wasn't old enough for youth allowance and didn't have anything for my DS until 2 weeks before he was born when my real dad loaned me $500 to buy essentials and my cousin gave me a cot for him.
    I was 15 turning 16 when I had him i wouldn't have it any other way and don't regret a thing and if either my DS or my DD happen to become teen parents I will support them no matter what it's my job as their mother to always be there for them love and support them
