Some of these conversations are really tough...
Most teens who find themselves moms- or dads-to-be couldn’t imagine a worse fate. But sometimes the hardest thing isn’t having to grow up extremely fast, or even raising a child or facing marriage — but facing the judgment of everyone once they find out about the pregnancy.
For the parents of teens facing pregnancy, it can seem like the end of the world. Even if they are understanding, it can be incredibly difficult to process, and heartbreaking to know that their son or daughter will have to become an adult prematurely. In the meantime, it’s understandable for parents to become emotional — sad, heartbroken, or even furious.
That’s why it’s extremely crucial for teens to decide how to break it to their parents that they will soon be grandparents. For these 20 teens, they broke it to their parents the best way they could — for better or for worse.
Admit and Split
My cousin was 19, he left a note that simply read, “Guess who are going to be grandparents.” and left for the weekend. They were not impressed. (noloco)

I told my teacher who promised he wouldn’t say anything until I had spoke to my parents… By the time I had got home from school both parents cars were on the drive (which was unusual as they finish at 5) so I knew what was coming… (dglover4)
My (17 year old) friend’s parents didn’t even know he had a girlfriend. When he found out she was pregnant, and that she wanted to keep it, he just kept it a secret from his parents. Nine months later she is having the baby and he just straight up says “I’m going to the hospital.” and leaves. Ofcourse his parents are all confused and follow him only to see this girl they don’t know squeez out their grandson. (Secretly-a-Unicorn)
