What would you say to ?
« on: February 01, 2022, 05:28:53 PM »
Well what would you say to Your teenaged daughter who has just said, " Dad, Mum, I'm pregnant ! "

I'm thankful that my daughter never had to say this, but I'm challenged as to how I would advise anyone facing this.

As the post in the link says, Acceptance, reassurance of being loved is important, as is sorting out the basic medical facts.

Red the post, written by a girl who had to say this:-

A subsquent question.

How does your church prepare teenaged boys and girls for the facts of life, Christianity and the emotional rollercoaster of dating?

Hi John
The only thing I can say is to love and support her I would try to persuade her to not have an abortion and to keep the child and would help her as best I could to rear my grandchild.
I consider abortion as murder if youngsters get pregnant they should take responsibility for their actions.
Of course prevention is the best option easy access to contraption might be a better option.

Love and Peace
Dave

Thank you Dave for replying.

                                      in general I agre with you, where I disagree is about contraceptives.
I agree prevention is the best course, but that is education through the church youth group, general teaching in sermons and from parents.
Specificly that Children do best when raised by both their parrents, that the more sexual partners someone has the more emunity they build up to the hormones that help couples bond, that studies show that couples who wait to have sex untill married report better and happier sex lives ( I suspect this is due to not being able to compare with other partners! ) Stats show that the most dangerous place to raise a child is, in single parent families.
Look at natural history programs, how often do they report that mothers with young avoid other males because those male will kill their young!

Today people are indoctrinated into believing they are animals and they behave as animals do.


Christianity is not a faith only belief, but is faith and facts belief, God created the world so the world can only be understood through the lens of Christianity.
