What Would
You Say?

Welcome! I've created this site, What Would Judy Say®?, to share ideas about life and to have a little fun.

A couple of times each month, I'll open with a new topic for your consideration and tell you just what I think, something I've never been shy about doing, even as a child.

I hope you won't be either.

Teens Suing Parents for Support: Is It Right?

Apr 17th

When I was growing up, my parents owned the air I breathed in their home. As long as I lived under their roof, I followed their rules. I didn't always like them and sometimes I rebelled, but I never left home and expected them to continue to pay for my upkeep. Some parents are more likable than others but unless there is real abuse in the home, the child doesn't have a choice as to where and when they receive parental support. In the news recently, a rebellious teenager left home and then sued her parents for financial support. What do you think about her actions? Do parents have the responsibility to support their errant children in a lifestyle they've become accustomed to? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
