So my 16 year old daughters friend just confided in me to say thst she pregnant and dont know what to do. Her parents are seperated this year and she does not have a very close relationship with either of them. How do I deal with all this as I really want to help? #Anxious#Nervous#Confused

@ Shawnn-Thanks a mil. I ended up going over to their place last night and after chatting the mom up for abt 40min...eventually we unleashed the news! It was not easy though, but her mom was very supportive....not quite the reaction we expected....but thank God its all over....

well, if she's 16, she's going to need to tell her parents. If she feels that will endanger her, then she needs to talk to the school counselors. They'll be able to give her aid and direction to services that she can benefit from.
You can be supportive, and you can be a 'safe zone' for her, but you also need to encourage her to talk to her folks. Offer to go with her, if that will help.
