Guardianship issues of early labor
Your daughter can independently exercise her parental rights from the moment she reaches the age of 16. A guardian for a child would be needed if your daughter had given birth before the age of 16. With the consent of your daughter you, the father, or any other relatives could have become this guardian. In this case, your daughter’s parental rights would not be lost in any way.
However, in this issue there is a very important nuance. The current legislation does not oblige in such situations it is necessary to appoint a guardian for a minor child. All relatives living with such a woman can help to raise a child on informal rights. In your situation, when the girl has already reached 16 years old, no questions can arise at all. To date, she is fully entitled to dispose of her parental rights in relation to the child born.
Social aspects of childbirth at age 16
It is no secret that too early pregnancy and childbirth can occur with some complications. If everything went smoothly in your situation and a healthy baby was born, this does not mean that your daughter will not face certain problems.
After the baby is born, you should surround the young mother with the maximum care and attention. Both her and the baby now need your full support and care. Your daughter herself has not yet achieved full legal independence, which she will acquire only after reaching 18 years of age.
Try to set up your daughter in the desired fashion, charge her with optimism. As a person who has lived his life and has experience in solving many issues, tell us that she may face certain problems associated with her young age. The bewilderment of others, the legal illiteracy of officials, issues of study and work – all this can confuse the young girl, sow many fears and fears in her soul.
Despite the fact that you do not need to get custody of your granddaughter, you should take an active part in her upbringing and support your daughter. Most likely, they will live in your home, so you will be able to control the process of raising and communicating a young mother and her baby.
Prepare for the fact that not always the interaction of your daughter and granddaughter will be similar to the peace and idyll, which is depicted in the pictures "mother and child". Quite often, early pregnancy and childbirth knock out young mothers from their usual rut. In fact, your daughter herself is still a child who has not yet entered into adult life with one leg and does not know what the world around us really is. Although there may be different situations between you, in
In fact, your child at this time will be very hard. Naturally, you should also be prepared for such cardinal changes in your life. It is a question of both financial, and psychological, and legal issues. Sometimes it will seem that everything is overwhelmed at once. But this is just another difficult streak of our very striped life.
I hope you have the strength and endurance to cope with the situation in your family. If you could not protect your daughter from early pregnancy, then now get used to the fact that you have another baby. Despite the fact that it is your daughter who is legally responsible for her, the practice of such families shows that it is the parents of the young mom who take this burden of responsibility upon themselves. Be honest with yourself, a girl at 16 years old is still a child, respectively, needs to be controlled and helped her. But with control and help, it is important not to overdo it, otherwise she will regard it as an attempt to subordinate her to herself. In this situation, all adolescents are the same – in spite of adults.
