Emancipation of young people


Even if you're correct about who can or can not make good choices for
themselves, is it the govts role to decide?

I don't think so. It sounds like a prescription for the nanny state.

Dear Starchild;

As I so noted exceptions can apply at anytime. But for the vast
majority - Oy Vey! 18 it should be regardless of race, creed, color,
sex, sexual preferences etc etc etc. Unless the persons can show
they are ready to be emancipated a whole heck of a lot earlier.

As I also asked generically of everyone what were you like as a
teenger??? Were you ready for early emancipation???

If a young person is willing and able to strike out on their


before the age of 18 -- as has historically, been the case with


individuals who went on to prosper and make great contributions to
society -- you wouldn't have the law prohibit this, would you? I'm
agreeing that someone who is a dependent of their parents or


should have to take the legal step of emancipating herself in

order to

have full legal rights. I also think that the 18 years following


is a reasonable period for parents or guardians to be required by


to exercise their guardianship, unless the dependent person freely
decides to seek emancipation earlier.

Yours in liberty,
