A friend called me up recently and we went out for a quick cup of 3pm tea to play catch up. Our bubbly catch up soon turned into a serious conversation when she mentioned that her 16 year niece was pregnant. Such devastating news! How do you handle this delicate situation?

Mala (let us call my friend that) has said that the family are torn apart, and it has been an endless blame game. I often wonder why so much blame is always hurled toward the young woman? It takes two surely! Here we have a delicate situation that has to be dealt with immediate resolve. So blaming, hurling insults and anger will not resolve the situation. It is easy to point fingers, church! parents!, friends!   The only best and easiest way is to be calm. A rational mind will give you rational answers….
