Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

How Should I tell my Parents?

0 answers
I guess I should say the big parts first, right? I just turned 21 back on March 25th, and I haven't seen my parents in more than half a year. My mom and I talk pretty regularly, but dad and I are kind of distant. My boyfriend and I have been wanting to have a family, but I'm worried because I was brought up in a Christian home. You aren't supposed to have your baby before you're married. I've had two miscarriages in the past, one caused by illness, and the other caused by my medications. I'm afraid to tell my parents because I don't want them to be disappointed in me. And if they aren't disappointed in me, I'm afraid of getting their hopes up in fears of another miscarriage. Please, help...
