I’m 16 and I’m pregnant how do I tell my parents because I’m scared they will kick me out or say I’m a disgusting and disgraceful I’m really scared someone please help
Take a few deep breaths to calm yourself down - I understand this may have came as a colossal shock to you but you need to think logically in a calm state of mind. Ask yourself what your current relationship with your parents is like, think about your household situation (finances, space to accommodate a baby), and most importantly think about what you want.
Life can throw curve balls, such as this, but it's important to take one step at a time. Don't feel the need to rush into things and do something you may later regret. If you do decide to tell your parents, perhaps it may be more useful to tell the parent your more comfortable telling in a private setting.
I hope it works out for you.
Not knowing your parents its hard to say but given this isnt the 70s anymore its unlikely theyll throw you out, if being incredibly angry/upset at it.
More importantly you probably need to decide what to do with the bump, keep it, adopt it away, terminate etc.
Personally id bite the bullet and tell the parents though, youre young and this is going to be a damn stressful time either way so youll want/need their support and after their initial shock theyll likely be there to help you/be with you through the various appointments/procedures.
As i said as well though, if you havcent already, find out what the dads p[osition is - aside from being the morally right thing to do and get his thoughts onboard - knowing if hell help or ditch and run will be fairly important for you
