I was just thinking, i'm reading alot of posts today (snow day) but i was wondering how alot of pregnant teens would be able to tell their parents, i'm not pregnant and don't plan to be, but i was wondering how any of you would beable to face your parents at young ages, oh yeah i'm 14, 15 in 3 months, but i still would never beable to tell them if somethin glike taht ever happened...so how do you tell them w/ out themgetting mad at you..isn't it weird, and if they do get mad what do that do?

Telling them was scary....i told them a week after i went to planned parenthood and got a pregnancy test that came back positive..I told Ryan that day and then waited a week to tell my parents...They were watching the TV with my brother and i just went in the living room said daddy, mom Im pregnant and walked out...i was pursued by my brother to my room he then made me talk in a little more detail..like what i planned to do..and then shortly my parents came up knocked on my door and my brother told them to wait a little he wanted to talk to me alone and my mom said ok send her down when you two are done..and we talked he let me cry and then i went downstairs to talk with my parents...my parents were none too pleased but not angry...my mom made me sit down and told me to call the doctor...and so on and so forth....it was very nerve wracking to get the courage up to tell them

sorry that was my story......you cant gaurentee that they will not be mad by any means of telling them...what advice i would give is just be flat out honest dont wait until you are 5 mos prgnt to tell them...but you cant control the reaction of any body even if you are completely honest......
