Provide support - Teenage pregnancy is often a crisis for a young girl and her family, as well as the baby's father and his family. Common reactions include anger, guilt and denial. Your teen might also experience anxiety, fear, shock and depression. Talk to your daughter about what she's feeling and the choices ahead. She needs your love, guidance and support now more than ever.

Discuss the options A pregnant teen — along with her parents, the father of the baby and his parents — has a variety of options to consider, including keeping the baby, adoption or terminating the pregnancy.

There are many religious, cultural and values issues related to teen pregnancy, as well. Talking to professionals that you trust, and that have experience working with pregnant teens, is an important part of your discussion. As her support system, their feedback will enable all of you to gain a better understanding of the impact of her decisions and provide guidance and community resources that can help everyone involved.
