A whole lot more than my mother did for me when I fell at 20. I would offer free accommodation, babysitting and childcare if I was able. I would be by her side as much as she'd allow, and encourage her to study/further her career.
I WAS 18 and pregnant. With my first so I know that whilst she needed support I would be furious at myself for leading her to follow my footsteps!
Even under the age of 18 you cannot force a child to adopt out their own baby! You'd make her adopt if she couldn't support it but wouldn't let her claim parenting payments or child support?? Wow. What an awful choice for a young person to be handed.
What happens if your daughter was 18/19/20 and was purposely pregnant (ie. TTC)? Would you still feel so disappointed? Or is t just unplanned pregnancies that ppl are against?
I was pregnant at 18 and basically abandoned by everyone I knew, so if my daughter ended up pregnant at 18 I'd support her, I'd help her in any way I could, for as long as I lived, not just the newborn stage when everyone wants cuddles.
