Telling my parents
Posted on: 05/02/2007
how do i tell my parents im pregnant?
There is no easy way, so I suggest that you ask them in the morning if the three of you can sit down and talk that evening. When it is time, tell them that you love them and need their support, and then, that you are pregnant. There may be some tears or yelling, depending on how your family deals with stuff, but hopefully, they will calm down and remember that you need them. If this does not go well, have another adult in mind who will be able to help - teacher, priest, counselor, aunt, grandparent, someone you can go to. I am sorry and good luck.
