I have an hypothetical topic. I like to see what others may say on this situation I brainstormed at home in my head. So let's suppose this situation.
There was a single woman working 5 days a week, 8 hours a day and she has a 12 year old daughter.
Personally, this is a hypothetical question that's too far out to even give an answer~simply by the fact that the child is twelve years old and the other child is only sixteen. I have lived for 72 plus years and have seen a lot, but not one like this one.
Now, if you say the girl is fifteen and the boy is seventeen or eighteen then I can give my view on such a question.
One day her daughter (fifteen, or sixteen) told her mother that about 3 months ago she slept with a boy eighteen years old. And now she found out she is pregnant by him and has not since then slept with anyone else.
The mother has the right to either keep the child and allow her daughter to raise it with her mother's help and the young man, or just let them get marry and let them fulfill their responsibility as the parents of the child~but it is the parent's decisions that should rule in such a case.
The mother is single because she also dated some guy for a few months. He left before she had her baby. Now she is going to a non-denominational church and her daughter goes sometimes.
Has no authority in what to do in the daughter's situation.
In this situation the girl is pregnant what is the mother to do with her? Like does the girl stay in school or does she have to take a break not to promote the idea of being pregnant at school? She can you know be embarrassed maybe. .
No problem....home school, there's a lot of ways of doing this.
If the mother is single and working how can she help her daughter?
Well, now, so far she has failed her daughter by not being wise as to monitor her as she should have done to not allow her with a boy one on one without some supervision of an adult~mainly her as her mother. There are ways this could have been done. I had daughters and took my responsibility very seriously as their father and so did their mother. There have been single mothers who raised girls and KNEW the danger of allowing their daughters along with a male unsupervised.
Does she equally raise this child or does she have her daughter to put in adoption? Which seems to be better to do?
No brainer~raised the child IT IS YOUR CHILD and YOUR responsibility to do so.
Does this girl need to go to classes to learn to have a baby, especially at her age?
She already HAS ONE, no need to learn how to have one, and as far as learning how to care for them~no problem, mother instinct will provide the learning, maybe not as wise as some being so young, but they will learn~the lack of knowledge is the results of having a child out of wedlock at a young age~but God is merciful if one puts their heart to do the best they can seeking his mercy.
As far as the 17, or 18-year-old boy what should happen to him?. How much responsibility will be on his part?. Is he supposed to in anyway or his parents support this girls child or there is no law of that age to do so?
As I said above, it is the parent of the pregnant girl that makes this call, yet as far as I'm concern, I would judge the character of the young man and make that decisions more in favor of making it HIS RESPONSIBILITY, but it all depends on his character.
