Yes, your parents can tell you what to do. The age of legal majority in most states is 18, in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21.

well if you're 16 and beautiful and you are a few months pregnant then yeah it is a possible chance they could tell your parents. because would you want your parents to find out later youre pregnant or just let the doctor tell them because either way they will find out eventually. so... am i the dad.

Only tell them if you are sure. Don't tell them before you are 100%. I mean before seen by a doctor. All the best to you!!!!!

It is illegal for you and your boyfriend to have sexual relations in England and Wales, but not in Scotland. You don't tell your parents. You break up with your boyfriend and find someone that is not in his 20s.

Speak and tell. Write and make them read. Go to doctor who will tell them. Tell a relative or friend, who tell your parents.

That depends. There are several things that could hold a 16 yr. old at home. Their parents could have said 'no', then it is not ok to go out. So they may have their own car, they may have a driver's license but that does not make them an adult. They would have to ask their parents or, if they have already promised to go out then they should tell their parents "I promised someone that I would meet them at _____" or what ever but they should tell their parents that they had promised someone that they would be somewhere.

There are only a few ways to tell your parents you are a cross-dresser. Most people just tell their parents outright because it is too difficult not to.

Tell your parents to tell bully's parents or tell the principal.

You must first tell your doctor and then to your parents and/or with the social services (welfare officer). .....actually...you dont HAVE to tell anyone. SHOULD you tell your parents? YES, of course you should. Do you HAVE to? NO.

User Avatar

Yes. At 16 you can drop out with parents consent.

Just tell them straight, they can't exactly force you to stop seeing each other. If you love each other then there is nothing wrong is there?
