Go to them privately and Just say im really sorry to your parents, and say I respect what you say and i deserve to be punished. Don't get an abortion it will come back to haunt you and when you get older and have kids you will never forgive yourself. If you must at least put the baby up for adoption
If you're 16 and younger just tell you're family or mother mom I had sex and I think I'm pregnant. It's going to be very stressful and hopefully you have a supportive family. If you're 18 and older just say I'm have exciting news I'm pregnant! Make sure you get it to fit somewhere in the conversation though. If you don't mind me asking, how old are you?
Mon, Dad help me pick a name for your grand son. Can I name him/her after you. Mom how did you raised because I want to be him/her the same way you were with me when I was your little baby girl. Put as much honey in it and you will drive them crazy. Mom will go back to the days you were an infant and grand pa will go crazy thinking about holding the baby. Make them part of your pregnancy and they will love it. Be ready for the other siblings to be jealous! Good luck.
There will be more than just some one you'll have tell, and I'm sorry but there are no magic words or easy answers. You must be very scared, so pick an adult you can trust with your feelings and tell this person first, then she can help you deal with your situation. The words will come to you, be brave and face this head on. My thoughts are with you.

I think that would depend a lot on the relationship of the teen with her parents. Even with the most understanding of parents, there is going to be some shock involved. If you think you need one, an intermediary person may be of help (trusted teacher, pastor, family friend). I have a little experience with this as a one-time very surprised father. All worked out OK in our case. I am not given over to hysterics.
I'm not judging you but, I'm 13 and just got my first boyfriend 5 months ago! And your pregnant at 13? Anyway to answer this question I would say just be truthful with your parents, they will find out sooner or later. Gosh, 13. Fhew.
Tell your parents. They will support you even though they probably won't be too happy with the news. Hang in there because it already happened. This is just one of those scary moments that you have to face. Good luck!
I went to my parents 26 years ago and told them. I had unprotected sex and that it was my responsibility to take care of my baby. I thank God that the father supported me emotionally and financially. It was a scary time but my family supported me too. Just tell whomever it is you have to and don't wait. It's time to grow up and take responsibility for your actions.
