Hello and Thank You for using Just Answer. It is perfectly fine to take your daughter's cell phone away while she is at home. Most of the time, the young kids today just want to text on their phones for hours on end. If her friends need to get ahold of her, then they can call her on the home phone while she is at home.

I am not sure what your daughter did to be grounded but if she breaks the rules, you must always enforce consequences as the parent no matter what so that she will learn for next time.

The best course of action to take is to seek family counseling. There is no reason why her dad should stop being a parent. He needs to set a good example for his daughter and be there for her through the good and the bad times. In a family counseling sessions, feelings can be openly discussed with a neutral third party. Nobody should be angry now with the impending arrival of a new baby. What happened has already happened. It is not what the dad wanted but life is not perfect. Contact your daughter's pediatrician or ob gyn for a referral for a family counselor. Have a great day.

Being pregnant is something she should not really be punished for now. Your main goal is to support her.
