Dear Deidre ...World’s No 1 Agony Aunt



Dear Deidre,

My girlfriend has just told me she’s pregnant but I’ve never liked kids. In fact, I can’t stand them. I’m 22 and she is 21. We’ve been together for three years and things have been great until now.


When I was still at school my older brother’s kids used to stay at our house. They would do nothing but make a mess and screamed at all hours of the day. Since then I have never liked kids.


We always used contraception-yet my girlfriend still conceived. She has already said she’ll leave if I don’t love the baby so I thought I’d at least try. We went for the first scan last week. Everyone has said it is supposed to bring a tear to your eye, but it just made me feel sick. It’s going to destroy my life and I don’t know if I can handle it.


Deidre says: I don’t know what was going on with your older brother’s kids but children don’t have to scream and cry all of the time. They are always demanding and can be noisy- but can bring more joy than just about anything else in life.


The first scan picture can often demand lots of imagination to see anything like a baby, so don’t give up on the idea yet.


Your little one will quickly pick up on any unease you feel. So contact Fathers-To-Be (01892890614), fatherstobe.org) and read the Fathers-To-Be Handbook by Patrick Houser(£9.98)
