    Teen sues parents after being ‘kicked out,’ wants money

    http://nypost.com/2014/03/03/teen-su...t-wants-money/

    "A New Jersey teenager is suing her parents, claiming she was kicked out of her home and thus entitled to money for private-school tuition, transportation, room and board."

    "In a potential precedent-sitting lawsuit, Morris Catholic HS senior Rachel Canning said mom and dad are still financially responsible for her — even after she flew their Lincoln Park coop, two days before her 18th birthday in late October."

    "The eldest daughter of Sean and Elizabeth Canning said she was forced out, while her parents insist she moved voluntarily."

    "Both sides are scheduled to appear before a Morristown judge on Tuesday.
    Rachel is asking that mom and dad be ordered to immediately pay up for tuition at the 12th-grader’s Morris Catholic HS."

    This would set a horrible precedent if spoiled kids could move out and demand living expenses from their parents.

    Really hoping the judge gives her a much needed welcome to the real world.
    ETA: I think her parents should pay up the rest of her high school tuition. They were the ones that enrolled her there but all the other stuff no.

    Watching this case closely!

    I also hope the judge welcomes her into the adult world and laughs at her!

    Geeesh... Zero appreciation!

    I also knew everything and thought I was an adult at 18. I moved out. I came crawling back with my humbled tail between my legs and a huge appreciation for my parents!!!! I managed to survive for 3 months.
    It was awful.
    Back then parents stuck together. No way were my friends parents going to take me in.

    ETA the parents of her friend that thwarted her parents efforts to PARENT should pay. They IMO accepted that burden when they allowed the brat to move in.

    She really did not get kicked out, She would not follow the house rules and was asked to leave.

    What a spoiled brat.

    As a resident of New Jersey, I can attest to the enormously high property taxes, that her parents already pay toward a public education.

    My own child went to private school for years and years and it's like paying twice!

    She should appreciate the education they were WILLING to give her for the small price of common courtesy and respect.

    I think she is 18 and should have to deal with what being an adult really means..

    HOWEVER, I can see the Judge saying to her parents you need to finish paying for her senior year of school. I cannot see him demanding they pay for college though..

    My personal feelings aside, I feel this is what will happen.

    Linda, You wait.. WE are going to be buds.. I can feel it..

    Could happen, but the child could certainly attend her local public school for free, which is funded by the community. I don't know a thing about her school specifically, but I believe NJ is known for its fantastic public schools, isn't it?

    Fantastic is in the eye of the beholder. I think it's better that some other states... But it stinks IMO when compared to a good private school. IMO

    I really like a lot of people here that don't agree with me.. I love that people stand on what they believe rather than just go along with everyone else.
    I like free thinkers!

    I think that while she should have to deal with the consequences of her actions, I think the Judge could split it.. I hope not..

    Unbelievable!!! Where is the brat getting the money to pay for a lawyer (if she has one).
    18 is an adult - you can join the military.
