I don't have a 16 year old daughter.
But I have 16 year old mothers living near me.
And I've watched all the dramas that have ensued relating to issues such as custody, relationship, accommodation, maturity etc.
If I had a 16 year old daughter I wouldn't kick her out of home. If I was living in SA or Tassie, the first thing I would do would be to have her boyfriend charged with sexual offences.
If we were still in Qld, I would have him investigated for sexual offences with the possibility of him being charged if it was found that the two were engaging in sex prior to her 16th birthday.
Am I being harsh? Or just being a parent?
By doing this, it would mean that the child would be subject to formal scrutiny and potentially protected from the inevitable PITA issues such as those relating to custody and the child's welfare and would also provide me with more jurisdiction as to my grandchild's safety which, to me, would be paramount.
