So despite having her on birth control for 2 years, my 17 year old daughter is pregnant. She will b 18 in January and will be moving in with her boyfriend who is also 17 and his Mom. What I need help with is this. She is in her senior year in high school and I would like to see her graduate. (the baby is due in April) My husband (her step-dad) and her use to be really close and since we found out she is pregnant the two of them won't even talk to each other. And I am stuck right in the middle of the two of them being angry at one another all the time and it hurts my feelings. She wants to move out now, because we won't bend our rules so that she can spend all of her time with the baby's father. She has curfew still and if her grades get below a c she can't go out during the week, and she says hateful things to me about not wanting to live here and how we suck as parents. I don't know what to do. Should I let her go and live with her boyfriend at his mother's house and give up on my daughter? Or do I stick to my guns and keep her home until she is 18 and try my hardest to prepare her for motherhood the best I can and ignore all the hateful words and feelings going on? I realize being pregnant brings out lots of emotions. I went through it obviously. But I am having such a hard time being to middle person between her and my husband. And None of this is fair to my 12 year old son who has to also listen to all the negativity going on. HELP!!! I am at my wits end!!!!!
