Should parents be able to decide what their teenager does with their baby?

  • Parents should be able to decide what their teenager does with their baby

    Parents should be able to decide what their teenage child does with their baby. This is because of the fact that teenagers under the age of 18 are still technically the "property" of their parents. This means that their children are also the property of the parents. Teenagers are too irresponsible to have custody of children.

  • Yes if a child is a minor parents can step in

    If a minor becomes pregnant and is not in a position to support themselves a parent who is supporting the minor should have a right to input into the decision. If the parent of the minor is really going to be responsibile for the new child as well it is a burden and they have a right to decide.

  • Yes, parents should be able to decide what their teenager does with their baby.

    Yes, parents should be able to decide what their teenager does with their baby, because most likely they will end up having to contribute financially to helping raise the baby and baby sit, while the teenagers attends school or go to work. Also teenagers are not mature enough to make a decision on whether to adopt, abort or keep the baby.

  • Still she is a child

    Yes , of course they are children's whatever the situation maybe they still behave like a child and when it comes in terms of parenting, certainly they are on the losing side.
    So they must be cope with adult parents regarding their babies including sanitation, vaccination and other health conditions.

  • To an extent, yes.

    Teenagers are still learning and are still, in many ways, children themselves. While they should, in theory, be entirely responsible for their baby, most teenagers do not have that much responsibility and patience. Unfortunately, frustrated teenage parents can be a serious physical threat for the baby. For the baby's safety and for the teenagers' sanity, the [teenagers'] parents should be able to step in at any time.

  • Parental rights should be mostly sacrosanct.

    That depends on the faculties of the teen parent in question. If we're talking about a 13 year old, I obviously think that some adult supervision is needed. But at 16 or older, we should probably not allow the grandparents of the child to call the shots when it comes to their baby's baby.

  • Parents should not be able to decide what their teenager does with their baby.

    Parents should not be able to decide what their teenager does with their baby. I think if the teen has a baby then it is their responsibility to raise it. I see a lot of teens relying on their parents to baby sit their baby when they want to go out. I do not think this is fair for the parents and the teen should be responsible if they are going to have a baby.

  • No, parents should not be able to decide what a teen does with her baby.

    I believe that parents should not be able to decide what their teenager does with her baby. It is not the parents' baby; it is the teenager's baby. Therefore, she has to take the responsibility for her actions. It is not the parents place to make the decision about the baby. The best things parents can do is provide support to the teen, either financial or emotional.

  • Its their baby...

    No matter the age, the parent is the parent. The teenage parent should have as much rights as adult parents.
    If your thinking the adult parent of the teenage parent can just force them to abort, then why cant the parent of the adult do the same? Its relatively the same thing honestly. I mean sure, the teenager might not be as mature as one would like, but 9 times out of 10 this teenager matures rather quickly.
    Its not correct to take away their parenting rights just because they are young.

  • Definitely NOT !!

    I understand that its the teenagers parents, but its their kid and they should take full responsibility on why they do with their baby. They shouldn't depend on their parents to make the decision, if they want to keep it then okay, abort it then okay( even though I disapprove of abortion), adoption whatever it may be. Some teens may want to have their parents decision and that's fine but other than that no they shouldn't. Also, it depends on the age, in this century young children are getting pregnant without a care in a world that's when its only acceptable for the parents to decide on what will happen to that baby.

  • It is their baby.

    It is not their baby so why should they decide. The parents of a child can do whatever they want to do with the baby as long as they are not going to assault the baby. In that case then the godparents should take care of him or her until the parents are not a threat to the baby.
