Everyone has a different opinion on pregnancy.
And when I say pregnancy, I mean what to do when you’re pregnant as a teenager. Some people think that even a fetus is a living human being, while others think that it should be the person’s choice. However, whatever your thoughts may be on the matter, everyone can agree on one thing, that parenting can be very hard especially when you are young and don’t know what you are getting yourself into.
So it is no surprise that whenever a teenager becomes pregnant, their parents usually have a lot to say about it. The parents know how hard it can be and just want the best for their children but it doesn’t always work out. That is what is happening in this particular story. So the mother of the pregnant teen decided to ask Reddit for advice on whether she was wrong for setting rules and not wanting another kid to take care of.

Right from the start, the boyfriend did not want the baby at all.
He was never interested in the baby at all.
However, the daughter has decided to keep the baby.
And she has a plan in mind as well.
She clearly thinks that her parents should take care of the baby whenever she is not able to.
There is nothing wrong with not taking care of a child.
The parents are retiring soon and this is not how they want to spend that time.
So they told her that she needs to find a new place to live.
Her husband isn’t fully onboard with this but she thinks he should be.
She also posted an update that expanded upon some of her earlier points.
While I don’t think anyone should force the teen to choose between adoption, abortion, or keeping the baby, telling her about all the choices isn’t wrong. And it is clear that she does not know what goes into being a parent and needs some help. Some people might call out the woman for not helping her daughter but it was the daughter’s decision so why should the mother be held accountable as well?
People in the comments were usually on her side.
They had talked about adoption as well but she isn’t budging.
There were also some people who thought that everyone is a weird position and nobody is in the complete wrong.
And there is nothing wrong with this statement.
It is her decision and she needs to handle all the responsibilities that come with it.
It is not as if the daughter isn’t getting any help either.
The daughter should know that it is not her parent’s responsibility to raise her child.
She clearly hasn’t thought through any of this.
This is actually an ingenious way of letting someone have a taste of parenting.
Her daughter needs to grow up and realize this.
