Would you approve of your 16yr. child's legal right in choosing to live somewhere else besides at home? In this home there is no abuse, drugs, alcohol, yelling or screaming. There is only love, peace and harmony.
If you do not approve would you go through the courts and battle for your right to parent your own child?
When would you stop your court battle?
I appreciate your input.
I just checked to see what reply's I had received and this seems to be a subject people are afraid of. IT IS a REAL possibility in today's world and you cannot count on Family Court to settle this matter. I have been there for over a yr. and a half already.
Yes, I think at 16 the courts will allow them to choose.
yes i would go to court, and i wouldn't give up without a fight. my child would probably not appreciate it at that young age, but i think when he got older, he would appreciate my not giving up on him. this is all hypothetical, of course, and easy to answer. and if he lost his bid for emancipation, i would give him more freedom because that seems to be what is behind the desire to leave the parental home - more independence.
I'm not afraid to say what I'd do.
If my own were a perfectly fine home, and the other home in question were not my child's other parent's; I would definitely keep on fighting until the child was 18. Sometimes kids get it in their heads that someone else would be better to live with than their parent, who set limits. So, in that case, I'd just make sure my child knew I wasn't about to go along with his moving out.
If I were divorced and the other home were my child's other parent (and I knew his other parent was a good parent and solid person), then I would take my child's wishes into consideration.

My question - In general, how do you feel about the right to religious freedom being used in this specific Supreme Court decision? Does one have the right to discriminate due to a religious belief? The Supreme Court ruled today in favor of a Colorado cake baker who refused to make a...

Why is it that people who don't have children try to advise parents on how to raise theirs?It just seems that so many people believe that they can give expert advice simply because they have worked with children or have been around them. I'm sure that every parent will agree that being around...
