A counselor from school referred me to a local support group at a nearby highschool, you may want to try that. There's a lot more girls out there in your situation than you may think!
I don't know if there is a support group for parents with pregnant teenagers, but if not, there needs to be, because this is a epidemic, and these girls seems to be totally clueless as to what they're getting themselves into.
Hi, I don't know of a forum dedicated to pregnant teens. But I just started a forum this week for parents period. And speaking as a woman that got pregnant at 16 and then 18, I can tell you that it's not the end of the world for these teens. Having parents and/or friends and family around is the best thing for them right now. They need support and to be told that it won't be easy but that everyone will help them so that they can finish school and get careers.

If the teens are living with their parents, then their parents provide for them. The level of support is going to depend on the parents' financial decisions and there is not any specific requirement besides what is needed for the child to live and go to school. If the teen moves out, they should expect to meet expenses on their own.
no. but many teens do get pregnant, sadly
About 60% of teens are parents in the u.s
Yes, you can. One of the women in my adoptive parent support group is adopting a 17 year old girl. We have several families in that group who are open to adopting teens, even older teens. I've run into quite a few people who understand that parents aren't something that you stop needing at 18.

Education. Parents sharing their moral view of premarital sex. An ability to openly discuss views and feeling from both teens and parents. Access to birth control when needed.
The first time to many teens have the sex talk with their parents, is when telling them that they are pregnant. Parents, if the teens have a sex queston with their parents, don't assume they are doing it. And teens, if your parents aren't talking to you about sex, don't assume they don't care. Teenage pregnancy is 100% preventable. Start talking. For more information, please visit, stayteen.org or abcfamily.com

Yes, continuation schools frequently have either a) programs for pregnant teens to help them out or b) day care and such on the campus.

We have about 30 parents with children and 200 students (male and female, who were behind on credits) total.
When you chose to have intercourse there is always a risk of getting pregnant even if you are on birth control. Many times teens feel like having intercourse makes them "grown up" but yet they are not able to independently take care of themselves let alone a baby.

Typically teens end up staying with their parents and the parents help raise the child and due to society not wanting the innocent baby to suffer the teens do get benefits.
