Teens Suing Parents for Support: Is It Right?
April 17th 2014
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.
Judge Judy says...it's outrageous for errant children to leave home and then turn around and sue their parents for support.
