I have been with my boyfriend for almost 3 months and I am pregnant with his child. We are excited, but also scared because we don't know how my father is going to react to us telling him. How do we tell him, should we be at home or in a public place and when is the best time?

I would do it at home, where he would be more comfortable talking about sensitive issues. But if you're afraid of him reacting violently, then do it in a public place where you still have some distance from people who might overhear your conversation. Do it soon, and quick like removing a Band-Aid.

First off are you getting prenatal care? That is a must! To gage how your father will react, how does he get along with your boyfriend? Does your boyfriend have a job? I'm sure you are overwhelmed right now. Just breathe.

Little Missy, my boyfriend had already told his parents that I am and I told my father that I am last night and he is a little upset, but proud of me for telling him soon.

I told him and he did not react violently, he reacted calmly. It took a lot of confidence to tell him.

How about you get your boyfriends parents and your father together and tell everyone at once? Your father is gonna be mad. I don't blame him. You are 17 years old, sleeping with your boyfriend and you guys got pregnant after only being together for 3 months. The reality is, you and your boyfriend barely know eachother (regardless of what you think) after only 3 months....he has no job...and you want to move in together to raise your little family. Any parents reaction would be to freak out.

My boyfriend and I have decided for me to tell my father. I will be doing so tonight. I just pray he does not hit me or try and tell me that I have to have an abortion.

Then you should definatly tell him in a public place since you are scared he might get violent. I hope it goes well and that your father does not react violantly. And maybe he will be exited..who knows,he might support you! I wish you good luck and a healthy pregnancy.

Raye, I'm afraid that he will act violently at home, even if he doesn't do it towards my boyfriend, I'm afraid he will try and hurt me when him and I get home. I have already been looking for a friend that will let me stay with them, until my boyfriend and I can get an apartment together for him and I to be able to take care of the baby together as a family...

Stephanie, I am not getting prenatal care yet, but I will be soon. He is looking to get a job and my father and my boyfriend gets along like they are father and son, but I don't know what my father's outlook on him will be after this.
