    This has been a sad experience for a family friend when their eldest daughter got pregnant without warning. Parents usually have their dreams for their children and getting pregnant is not one of the dreams. The advice of psychologists is to get closer to your teenage children regardless of the time constraints so that early pregnancy will be avoided.

    That is so unfortunate, especially for the girl who is saddled with such a responsibility at an age where she should be focused on her education and wellbeing. I guess, the onus lies on the parents here who failed in their duties to make their child responsible enough to understand the consequences of such things. For that, I agree with you that there should be more open communication of parents and their children.

    That's heart breaking for the parents and also the girl when the boy doesn't accept his mistake.
