She's 2 months pregnant and in final year of high school. She wants to finish school - she's due after main exams so thats ok.
This relationship with the father of her child was her first but she was fully educated about using protection etc. I had taken her for the injection to prevent pregnancy when I first noticed them to comfortable with each other ie: they'd already had sex, but was too late.
The father is still very young himself (17) and manipulates my daughter emotionally and lies about small things as well. She had had enough of this and she said they need time to decide on their own futures, etc. He gave her the weekend alone and then pushed for an answer last night. She is having a bad pregnancy - nausea, vomitting, etc and is battling to deal with the pressure from the pushy father and the pregnancy at the same time. She said she needed space and broke up with him last night.
He went back to his place and sent messages out to everyone saying goodbye and took an overdose of headache tablets, then left a message on my phone saying he wanted to see my daughter before she went to school as it was very important. She went and he was still alert and saying how he can't live without her etc. His mom came round and found out about the pills and got him to vomit most of them up etc. His mom now wants my daughter to move in with him...
My daughter does not want to cut him out of his baby's life but really needs distance at the moment to focus on school and getting through the first trimester of pregnancy.
Plus I am very wary about her being involved with a person who is that manipulative and destructive.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this matter. I know this is only my view of things and that there are 3 sides to every story so I have tried to be as unbiased as possible but the pain for my daughter's sake is very strong. Edit: Oh yes and I'm a single mom as well for the last 11 years.
