Sit down with your mother not your father since he will take it the worst. Just tell her you made a horrible mistake and how sorry you are. Tell her what it is and reassure her that it was not her fault and she's not to blame just you and the baby's father.

Make sure you tell them very early. Never wait! This will give them more time to get used to the fact that there baby is going to have one of her own. No matter how you tell them they are going to react harshly. believe me, but soon they will come to their senses. JUST BE BRAVE!!!!!!!!!!

I am 17 years old, and my parents are also strict, so I know where you are coming from with this question. Right now in my mind I don't know if I am pregnant, but I do know that having sex with my boyfriend whom I love very much was not a mistake. If I was you, I would let my mother know first. I would sit her down and let her know you need to talk to her and you want to speak before she gets upset, ( you want to get out what you need to before she yells). Tell her it is a little bit late to talk about birth control or abstinance. Let her know that you are or you think you are pregnant. Make sure you tell her how you feel about the situation and if you know what you plan on doing with the pregnancy. After you two have had a long talk and you both calm down, talk about telling your father. Make sure you approach him together.

It's going to be very hard, but remember you have to tell them. If you don't and hide the pregnancy, then if the baby is born with something wrong, you will be in trouble for that. If you lose the courage have someone you trust tell them for you. First tell the parent you are closest to, whether that's your father or mother. Hopefully that parent will want to be with you when you tell the other parent. I had to go through this because I was a teen parent. I was 17, granted, but it's still as hard when you are living under their roof.

As a mature parent that I am of a 16 girl, there is no easy way to do it. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be. You must include them in your world now. They're going to go through all of the emotions, but the one emotion they will not have is related to waiting too long to tell them. You also need to make sure the young man's parents are informed at the same time.

Tell them the truth - including that you might have to leave their home if they feel you "embarrassed" the family.

No, This is because her parents are really strict and keep her under a lot of supervision. To her it's like she is the term "Under a microscope" and she most likely would never do that.

it really depend on the age. If the pregnant teen is under 18 then the father can be put in jail for stat rape if the parents of the girl choose to.

you don't have to tell them. you can write it. i was in the exact same situation once when i was in 6th grade. i have really strict parents. like REALLY STRICT PARENTS. so i just went on my computer and and just typed up what i was planning on saying to them. i printed it out when i was done and i just slipped it under there door. then they read it and they talked to each other before they were going to talk to me and they came up with my punishment i just got grounded and that's it. it was so much easier than letting them scream at me. Good luck on what your gonna do with your parents.

No, if you are pregnant and under the age of 18 you are not leagally emancipated from your parents at all until you are 18 then you can be on your own. Just because you have a baby doesn't mean your an adult.
