Emancipation

I have heard that word twice in one day. Once was one of my daughter's friends talking about wanting to be emancipated from her parents because they are "stupid."

In the 10 minutes I was around her mom, I would have to agree with that one.

The other was overhearing a police officer saying parents can have their teens (16 and over) emancipated.

I love the police.

Too funny!

I wish I would have known that when my son was 16!

Emancipation of teens over the age of 16 would entail...? Is this to be protected from being sued, if they do something terribly foolish and irresponsible? What would be the need to be emancipated from them? Just wondering?

Mine is 23 now and soon will deliver a bebe' in March. She is quite emancipated, which is quite liberating for me, but I still give her money and would do much for her if she needed it.

I think it should be the other way around.

is there rejoicing now that school has resumed?

I'm afraid to say that if my daughters became "emancipated," they wouldn't know what to do or who to blame! I don't know if that indicates bad parenting, but it's so true!
