    I was a little older than 18 (20) I can't imagine how I'd feel if my parents tried to encouraged me to terminate.

    And what's two years in the scheme of things really.

    We are talking about a life - I'm 100% pro choice - But in terms of someone else's baby, particularly someone who is an adult, whether they are your child or not, I can't think of too many things more offensive than suggesting they end the life of their "baby". (Not wanting to open the whole when does a baby become a baby etc etc etc but for me, within my body, life starts at conception. So if my parents suggested, not even encouraged, just suggested termination... I would hear it at as them suggested I K-word my baby)

    If my DD was to fall preg at 18 id support her no matter what!!! as I had my DS when I was 15 and my mother kicked out of home when told her I was preg had to rent my own house (can legally rent at 14) and struggled financially my mother actually took my DS off me for 6 months using my age against me as I wasn't fit to be a mum and I blo0dy well proved to her and docs that I was. Did everything they asked and more. Not all young parents are craPpy parents I now hVe my babies and I'm studying and have worked on and off aswel as being single sahm for the last 6 years. And if my DD said she was preg at 18 I'd be over the moon if my DS told me he'd gotten a girl preg I'd make sure he stepped up n accepted responsibility for his actions and be a parent as I would with my daughter that's what I did. I knew I had screwed up but I accepted responsibility for my actions and never regret a thing

    I wanted to add...i don't think young = crappy parent at all.

    My worry is for my child's life and them getting their own life before giving it away to their child.

    A child is a wonderful thing, but so is being free and having a a wonderful time in youth. To me, this is an important time in growing up....the time to be independent and free of responsibility.

    I will always support my kids, no matter what....but, it doesn't change that i feel they would be missing out and that is why i would be sad/disappointed for them. The flip side is that I would be a grandma (eeekkk) and be fabulously excited after the initial sadness had passed.

    Lol yeah if jasper makes me a grandma when he's 18... I'd be a 39 year old grandma! Eek!

    Though I met a 36 year old grandma-to-be a while ago. She was asking me about my strider plus because she had a 2 year old and a 16 year old who was having a baby and from the brief convo she was planning to take on the baby so her daughter could finish highschool. I can't imagine how bizarre that would be having a 2 year old child and baby grandchild. The 2 year old is the babies "auntie". Lol.

    I would arrange and pay for birth control before 16 if there was need. Birth control is not alway a ticket or ok for sexual activity. It has multiple purposes and protection against pregnancy is one of them.

    I think it depends on what my daughter is like at that age as to how exactly I would support her choices.

    I fell pregnant at 18, lived with my bf (now DH) we both worked full time, had cars, we're about as stable as you could get at 18. My parents were very disappointed in me luckily for them I miscarried and the problem was solved. I was petrified of telling them and cried myself sick at the prospect of telling. My dad didn't talk to me for a week and my mum was angry and disappointed and was not compassionate about my awful, messy, painful miscarriage.

    It was an awful time that I would never inflict on my own dd, I know that.

    I was 1 week of being 17 when I fell pregnant and my mum didn't support me at all, told me to have an abortion and was completely horrible about it (in her eyes she saw that it wasn't going to work as she didn't like my ex). I'm 23 now and I still remember how she treated me about it, she'd tell me not to go out in public as someone may see me pregnant etc. If my child was pregnant at 18 I would go about it completely different knowing how the negativity affected me in saying that it's all about communication and seeing what she wants and talking about the future and options. Just because your s young mum it doesn't mean you can't have a career, it may just start later. It didn't take me long and I was back at work supporting my child but everyone is different and has different opinions.
