Do you have a good relationship with your parents? If you do rely on it. First, let them know that you need their help. Say something like, “ I really need your help figuring some stuff out.” Second, make sure that you do it at a good time. Ask, “Is there some time that you could talk to me about it?” Prepare them for a big shock. Say something like, “It’s really hard for me to talk about this. I’m feeling nervous. I don’t know how to start. I’m worried about what you will think.” Now they’re listening. Tell them you are pregnant by telling it in a story of what happened. Your reaction to their first reaction is very important. Remember, your parents care deeply for you. The information you are giving them is going to hurt them. No matter how they react, be understanding. Say something like, “You’re right.” or “I agree.” Keep it short, and don’t make excuses. Be sure to listen, and not interrupt or argue. It is important to not make them more upset. Ask for advice when they have gotten used to the idea. If you want to talk to me about it, I can talk to you on MSN, or by email [email protected] Hope this helps. Let me know how everything is going. Love, Shelly
