Q: Allana, I accidentally found out that my 16 year old daughter is pregnant. I’m so disappointed. I couldn’t find my phone so I used hers to call while she was in the shower and one of her friends sent a text that said “You’re pregnant?! Holy shit!” We’ve always had a close relationship and I don’t want to break that bond but I also want to confront her and ask her about what’s happened.
A: You own it! Simply apologize for using her phone, let her know you were just trying to find yours, but be honest and truthful that you saw something you shouldn’t have but that you love her and want to know what is going on with her. There are times that we want to keep these great relationships with our kids but we are their parents and we are here to protect them, to guide them.
