It depends on what the deceased parent has put in their Will. If they said that the surviving parent takes care of any monies or property until you are the age of 18 or 21 then the surviving parent has the right to do so. Your surviving parent is probably keeping the money for you so you will spend it wisely when you are a little older (probably 18 if this is the legal age in your State) and this really isn't a crime. Many young people would race out and buy a new car and squander the money. Talk to your parent if you want further education or want to travel a little. I am sure they will give you the money if it's for a good reason.

Can children sue their parents if they are deceased?

Yes they can, indirectly, such as in a case of wrongful death where the deceased parents killed others by the same actions which resulted in their own deaths. In other words, the accident or incident that killed the parents also killed a child or other person, and there is reason to think that the parents committed an act of negligence that resulted in the death of others. However, you would not be suing the parents, but making a claim against their insurance. But if the insurance refuses to pay, then you would sue the insurance company. Anyway, the children would not be suing the parents, but their parents' insurance or their parents' estate.
