Hello and thank you for using Just Answer. I am sorry to hear about the negative feelings that you have about your daughter's pregnancy. It is hard to accept as it would be for any parent. However, you must still continue to maintain your role as a parent. Do not turn your back on your daughter. Yes, you can explain your disappointment in your daughter's decision or carelessness. But you must offer love and as much support as you can. She is scared now though she would never admit it. She needs you more than you realize. Accept the reality of the situation and maintain the belief that one day things will be better and you will have a wonderful grandchild!
