My husband walked out on us three years ago. Last night I came home ear- ly and my 17- year-old daughter and her steady boyfriend. I caught them right in the act on the living room couch. They were horribly embarrassed and I had all I could do to keep from going to pieces. The boy left at once and my daughter and I had a talk.

Take her to a doctor who will advise her on the best birth control method.
