15 yr old daughter 3 months pregnant by 16 yr old boy. I let the boy move in because his grandparents kicked him out. Trying to teach a little responsibility I told them that they would have to pay a hundred dollars a month in rent and get jobs. So now they both want to move out. My thinks that now she is pregnant that she doesn't have to listen to are rules. She saids that she pregnant and that means we can't tell her what to do. What should I do? It's hard to just let her go. And is that the right and or best thing to do just let her go.

Yep sometimes the best thing is to let them fail so they can figure out how to succeed. Easier said then done...I know! She is still a minor and still living under your roof she needs to obey your rules. If she wants to move out then allow her....do it lovingly. Help her look at apartments figuring out what she can afford and what she needs to do to do so.
