    Just be honest, make sure it's in a relaxed environment and don't let them interupt.

    Expect them to be annoyed/angry/upset/disappointed.

    Good luck

    I'd just sit them down, tell them that you've been seeing someone for a while and one thing led to another in your relationship and you've just found out that you're pregnant.
    I'd think about and plan what you're gonna say if I were you. good luck.

    She might be doing that, she hasn't said.

    Either way, she's telling her parents..

    Good luck to her. Though, if she is cunning enough, she could claim "I got virgin Mary'd!" and pretend she woke up 6 weeks pregnant.

    Oh great, a cradle snatcher for a father. To be honest, there is only way to sort this out. Sit your parents down and tell them straight. Let the **** hit the fan and just pray, pray like you've never prayed before. Pray so hard til your palms bleed.

    My prayers are with you.

    as others have said probably the best way is to tell them you need to talk to them about something important and explain things through- if you have a brother or sister you could confide in first that may help as all parents are different and they may also have ideas about what you could say. if you really can't face telling them in person you could consider writing them a letter?

    Hopefully, your parents concern for you will outweigh any anger they might feel. I don' think there's anything you can do but tell them straight. I'm sure they'll stick with you- you are their daughter. The main concern is probably the age difference between you and your boyfriend... good luck, and try not to worry so much, which is probably not the easiest thing to do... but try...

    i wish i did have an older brother or sister i could confide in cos at least then i would have some support, but unfortunetly i am the oldest child within the whole family,
    other ideas i have though of are writing a letter (wouldnt know what to say within it) and also confiding in a college tutor and asking her to call my mum in so we could chat

    its basically her fault, she should just tell her parents. no one forced her to have sex with her bf, if you are having sex you should be mature enough to deal with the consequences.

    stop wasting thread space with this rubbish.

    guys if you not gonna answer appropriately dont bother!

    i just try and find a correct moment.

    maybe if you feel more confortable tell one at a time.

    my friends been through this (although she was 16)

    she approached her mum first because she thought she'd be more undertsanding.


    good look and everything will be fine.

    they love you, it might be a shock at first, and if they act upset/suggest abortion at first its only becuase they really care for you.

    they will come around.

    its best to tell them soon though, becuase you'll probably need all the support you can get.

    good luck x
