How Do I Tell My Parents I’m Pregnant?


How do I tell my parents I’m pregnant?

It is safe to say there’s no easy way to tell your parents this news. It’s also safe to say they may not be happy about it—so be prepared.

First, find out if you’re actually pregnant. Discount stores like Walmart and the dollar store sell really affordable home pregnancy tests that work just as well as the expensive ones. You can also go to a health clinic to take a pregnancy test. Oftentimes, health care providers can have good ideas about how to talk about pregnancy with your parents and can also get you the health care you need if you are pregnant.

Your parents might be angry at first, or find it hard to believe, but they might be able to help you consider what to do.
