Yes. If you are under the age of 16 you can be placed in state

care, which is worse then most teens homelife, for breaking too

many rules. Most rules are designed to protect you as well as keep

you out of trouble. If it seems unfair then think of a reasonable

change to the rule and then talk to your parents about it. Show a

little responsibility and interest in following the rules and they

usually get better. If you can't follow the rules your parents set,

its not likely that you'll be willing to follow the laws outside

your parents house. Now if the problem is that the rules are

immoral or harmful to you, perhaps you should seek help. Ask

another adult if they think the rules are fair.
