first of all how can Dell even know his daughter if he’s hardly allowed to see her. yes they broke the rules but they aren’t doing anything but hurting the baby in the long run. that’s something to push a man away, especially a man that is trying to be there.

Who writes these post? Not only are Teesha and Brad or strict, but they are also religious, which is why they are disappointed in Laila? Laila is the baby. Someone needs to proofread. They taught me that in school.

If anything I think the stepdad could work more closely with Dell on what it takes to provide for your family…no one owes you anything…if you have a child, parents are not required to help you…he should get his own place and then marry Teesha if he’s serious…otherwise he can’t be mad at the parents…if they are putting a roof over her head and providing the most. Unfortunately, what they say goes.

I believe in God myself but it’s a sin to get married an than get a divorce. The guy the mom is with is not her real dad. God knows the baby before the baby is born so he was born for a reason. God was there when it happened. Yes he would prefer they be married. You would think the mom would want the REAL dad be in the baby’s life. He’s not a bad dad nor a bad boyfriend to her daughter. So when she can get out of your controlling house an never comes back or don’t talk to you like you would like where is your god than? Are you gonna pray that you could be closer to her or the baby? Maybe you should let her be the mother she wants to be an pray that she will do the best she can. You could have a daughter that wants to kill her baby or beat the baby. It could always be worse. You have a good duaghter take it an run.

I think the parents are a bit strict, but seriously this is 2014, this dude has options. If he feels like he can’t see his daughter why won’t he get a court order? They’ll be forced to comply.

I’m sure Jazmin’s parents think that being strict is the best way to raise their daughter, but at some point, closing your eyes and pretending your kids aren’t having sex is just irresponsible parenting. It’s easy to just set house rules and then wash your hands of it but the reality is, lots of teens are sexually active and they deserve to know the reality of being sexually active and they need good information, whether you’re comfortable giving it or not. There’s no way a 16-year-old girl should be walking through life with so much misinformation and ignorance about her own body and reproduction in general. “I don’t know what a cervix is” “I heard birth control makes you fat and makes your hair fall out”. Really???? And keeping to their “house rules” after the baby’s born is just setting that teenage couple up to fail. They say their concerns are all about the baby, but how is it best for the baby to get an hour here and there with her father? The parents are in complete denial – “We’re not willing to alter the landscape of our household”? I’ve got news for you – the landscape IS altered, so quite hiding behind your disappointment and your beliefs and do what’s best for your daughter AND your granddaughter. These teen parents aren’t the only ones that need to grow up.

This is really sad. Being a Teen mom at 19, I would have given anything to have my daughter’s father be there for her. This boy obviously wants to do the right thing and take care of her and his child and her parents are telling her he can’t. There are not to many young black men that want to take care of their child. The fact that he tried everything possible and Jazmin allowed her parents be in control of her life is a damn shame. She is a mother now and the decisions that she makes need to be what is best for her family and not her parents. They need to step out of it and allow her to be the woman she has chosen to be. No wonder why her mother was divorced and remarried. She better hurry up and stand up to her parents before they run that good man away and make him feel/act like the other group of young black men that don’t want to take care if their kids. Its really heartbreaking.

I disagree with Jazmin’s parents she spoke out of both ends of her face and it upset me. She claimed she didn’t want to celebrate her pregnancy but tgere was a baby shower!! Then she claimed they didn’t trust them but she made her daughter a single mother by not doing what our religion says and forgiving because the sin was in the sex let that man be a father!!

I do feel they should have some rules stay the same. However, I also feel that these rules were pushing the baby’s father away and soon when he disappears all together they may only have themselves to blame. I have seen other parents allow the baby’s teen father to stay the night as long as it is in separate rooms so their daughter doesn’t have to do all. I think that would have been a good compromise to the rule

I’m all for some parental control butI think hey their rules didn’t work before, how will they work now? It almost seems like with the way they had those little sit downs, it almost sounded as if they wanted her to FAIL in life. Like as much as Jazmin tried to stay positive about school and her baby, they were like “hmm, you don’t know, it’ll be hard”. They’re going to lose their daughter in a larger way down the road. We get it your upset, she betrayed your trust but how can someone win back your trust if your not seeing the changes and the effort their trying to make. Not very Christian like if them. (Christians don’t hold grudges)

I don’t think that the parents should change the rules of their home. While I feel bad for the situation, Dell should realize that he has interfered with the raising of Jazmin the same way he feels that his time with his daughter is being interfered with. While it may be be hard for Jazmine to let go of her daughter, the best solution is for the baby to occasionally stay with Dell overnight. The sad part is that Jazmine slept with a guy who she didn’t know well and she is trying to advocate to her parents for him, but she is not comfortable enough with him to let him keep his own daughter without her being present.

Was this shown to an editor at all? Or maybe just spellcheck? There’s a line about Laila being pregnant and it says that Dell got to cut the “ambilical” cord. Which is definitely not a thing.

How can you be ok with a parent telling a father that he can’t see his child. Her mother just made her daughter a single parent. As children we make mistakes, but that child did not ask to be here and she deserves both of her parents in her life. I am a mother of a teenaged daughter and I raised her on my own for 12 years before I got marred (not to her father). I was 19 when I had my daughter and my mother never once denied my daughters father the right to see her (He did that on his own). The fact of the matter is religious or not, that boy has a right to see his child and that boy obviously loves jazmin and his daughter and her parents are pretty telling him he can’t. God is a forgiving God when we make mistakes we learn and he forgives.

“Jazmin admits she did not take birth control because she heard it would make her fat and also make her lose her hair.”

LOFREAKINGL! So, no one ever told this idiot how hard it is to get weight off (and keep it off) after you have a baby?!?

It just seemed that the parents were trying to keep Dell away from his daughter just to punish him for violating their precious angel. It takes two to make a baby and yet the daughter isnt being kept from seeing her baby. Dell really seems like hes trying hard, and the grandparents need to back off a little. They should be glad hes trying to help his young family and isnt just a deadbeat dad like so many on this show are!

that’s exactly how i feel there trying to prevent something from happening when it already happened she already got pregnant and we all know how a woman gets pregnant when you are so strict on children they take that as a way to get free majority of kids who have strict rules are the ones that get in more trouble then the kids who have parents that let them get away with certain things if your parents trust you and let you have some freedom once in a while you wouldnt have to sneak and do things behind there back

Frankly, I think those CHILDREN who are now having a child, need to grow up and start recognizing reality. Sounds like her parents want more for her than just being “16 and pregnant”. Kids shouldn’t be having kids, they should be having fun and learning in high school, maybe going to university or a tech college. But no, these kids got horny and thought it was their right to slap groins until she ended up pregnant. Sex doesn’t make you an adult, and sex ISN’T necessary for young people to have a relationship. Just because you get horny doesn’t mean you act on it, that’s part of being an adult. Taking responsibility is another. These CHILDREN don’t have the slightest idea what being an adult and taking responsibility is if they continually flout the rules set down by her parents. JMO y’all.

Oh, and I’d be disappointed if my 16 year old daughter got pregnant after all she’s been taught through her life.
