Thanks for the advice. I haven't thought about all of this. We will have to look into these ideas. Again, thanks for your help.

The two of them just left here to go tell his parents. That may be an explosive event. We'll have to see.

First, congrats on the upcoming grandchild...they are wonderful! My only thought on the rest of this would be the distance she and her boyfriend would be from family and friend support. Some colleges offer child care on site (for a fee) so that might be an avenue for them to explore. My daughter worked in the daycare center at her college so I know some do offer it. Many colleges are now offering courses via the web or video or a combination of both so maybe some courses like that might be offered where she plans to go. Some courses are offered in evenings or weekends. Another thought I haveis to look to see if there are summer courses she can take. Those tend to be intensive, but shorter . It would seem to me that she and the baby's dad will need to work out the details of childcare and both should be part of that solution. Just my thoughts. They are fortunate that you have some experience with this so you understand the challenges and the rewards as well and can offer advice.
Best wishes to the young family and to you as well!

We just found out that our 17 y.o. daughter, senior in high school, is pregnant. We've been diligently working on scholarship applications and she has plans to attend a community college that is 3 hours away and live with her boyfriend. We know that we have to tackle this situation head on.

I, too, was pregnant before we got married. I was pregnant my junior year in college, had my dtr. during the summer, and finished my senior year right away. It was very tough, but I had lots of family support and I know that it would have been virtually impossible without our families.

We are in the early stages of discussion with her and her boyfriend.

Any suggestions?
