Our daughter has been testing us for many years now and earlier this year run away from home to live with her boyfriend and family that she had only known for 2 weeks. I was angry and hurt at first and it took me a long time to be able to talk to her however I knew that I needed to be the adult and slowly managed to open up the communication between us and had hoped that this would help. She has moved back hm now only because she had too not because she wanted to and has told us she and her boyfriend want a baby. i have talked to her until blue in the face about the reality of what she is saying. Neither of them has a job or education she dropped out when she ran away and he has not come from a very supportive home so never has had too much disciplin or guidence. I feel that she knows that know matter what she has done or does that we are not going to abandon her and she will just do what she likes however I know that she is making a very difficult path for herself and need advice on how I might be able to get her to see this. I have done counselling, docotrs visits got her contraeption which she won't use and have talked to them both about the consequences of the decision. Being that neither of them has been able to stick at anything for more than a couple of months a baby is certainly not something that they will end up being able to cope with.
