Most of us discuss issues like teenage pregnancy with a matter of great concern, but at the same time, we take it as just another social issue, which could never happen to our own teenaged daughter. But, what if you suddenly come to know that your 16 year old high school daughter is pregnant and in no time she’ll be a mother?
It will be shocking initially followed with grief, disappointment together with anxiety for her future. Feeling like this is quite natural for a parent. But, amid all this, just think once about the mental trauma that the little girl is going through. She too is going through a great emotional roller coaster. Mixed feelings of guilt of doing something wrong, together with the fear of carrying a life within you and the feeling of responsibility of being a mother keep flooding her mind.
And at this very moment, she needs her mother. It’s just you who can give her the maximum support and comfort during this time, keeping aside all her mistakes and harsh feelings.
So what’s expected out of you at this hour is to let bygone be bygone and think about your daughter and the new member that’s soon going to enter your family. Cherish the fact that soon you’ll be a grand mother rather than brooding over the act. Pour all your love and affection on your child and take care of all her special needs physical and emotional to help her sail smooth through this all together new experience.
