Luna Lovegod, I do agree although in this situation it's tricky because this boy 'apparantly' wants to play the father role (according to his parents anyway!) I think if he chooses to be father, he should be given that right and I do think the baby would be better off with his family. This is why I think *in the meantime* his family should prove they are trying to do the right thing by paying the small amount of child support.
Do I think adults should prey on teens, have children with them, the victim chooses to not want to be a parent, and then the perp claim child support - ABSOLUTELY NOT. But this case is slightly different as he's chosen to play father role, just as share a book has chosen mother role and has taken on the financial burden.
