Heyah! I'm 14 years of age...I am 4 months pregnant and I don’t know what to do.Heyah! I'm 14 years of age...I am 4 months pregnant and I don’t know what to do. My boyfriend doesn't want anything to do with me and I’m all alone. My mum and dad don't want me anymore either. They say I’m a disgrace compared to my well-educated sisters currently at university. I am currently living off my Nan’s pension at my Nan’s place, but she’s 80 odd and won’t be able to cope. I need some child benefit but am unsure where to seek this. Please help.
