I have not actually experienced this but was asked the question a few weeks ago and I interested in other peoples take on the matter........
I was asked if my child (I have 3 boys 9, 4 and a half and 10 and a half months) when he was older got his teenage girlfriend pregnant what would I do???
Now this sounded stupid to me, as far as I am concerned It would be as much his doing as it was hers so I would want to help out were I could.
I understand that in the long run the weather to 'keep' the baby or not would be her her choice (although I am against abortion in most cases),
but if the decission was made to keep that child I would want to be a part of his or her life!
(I fell pregnant for my first child at 18 and I feelI am very lucky that the babies father (now my husband) and his family supported me all the way!)
After giving this answer I was then asked "why would you even worry"unless they were in a steady relationship? it is not your child that is pregnant!"
At this point I absolutely flew of the handle!!!! Not only would my son be a part of that child, but that young girl would be scared out of her mind! not to mention the repurcussions from her family!!!
Any way, I am rambling now!!!!!!
What does every one else think???
