My suggestion is to take it one step at a time. First deal with finding out if she is or is not....then go from there. At 13 yrs periods can often times be irregular or late as their bodies are just started to adjust to the hormones. So a late period does not mean she is pregnant, but it is also good to make sure. So a pregnancy test would be in order....but you do also want to approach this in a way that still keeps communication open. You also need to reassure her that you are there for her no matter what. If she is fearing that she might be pregnant she is also fearing your response. Letting her know that you love her and care about her no matter what and allow her a soft place to fall allows her to open up to you. That does not mean you are OK with the idea of her being pregnant or even having sex and that there are consequences for that.....just that is a conversation after we get passed this moment.

Well if you have an open line of communication with her, talking to her about it further should go ok. Get a pregnancy test, and tell her if she feels she should take it, that she should use it with the first pee in the morning because it is the most potent with pregnancy hormones. Also tell her that if it ends up positive, you hope she will sit down and talk with you about it.

We have a really open line of communication, but yesterday she mention that she was late 12 days, she has been tired eating more than usual but she told me when I ask her about having sex, "no, mom" but she has lie in other issues so I'm not quite convince that she is telling me the truth. She has been sneaking around, smoking, and with an attitude, not wanting to answer any question and things like that. I'm speechless.

Why do you think she is pregnant? Has she come and talked with you? Have you talked with her about sex and protecting herself? Has she taken a pregnancy test yet or been to the doctors? Plenty of suggestions, we just don't have any information.
