NO when you turn 18 you are considered a legal adult and your parents no longer have to give you permission to do things, they also cannot call the cops on you if you leave their house without permission wait until you are 18 to do anything that will upset your parents or to leave their home since the police could possibly get involved, hope everything works out for you, Good Luck and God Bless!!

If the daughter is a legal adult over the age of 18, then parents have little say or control over them.

If you are 19 can you move out of your parents house if they have legal guardianship of you?

If you are 19, why do they still have legal guardianship over you... I don't know about where you live, but in Canada you are legally allowed to move out anytime after 16, and in general, you're major age 18, so your parents DO NOT have guardianship of you anymore. They used to, but it's over since you 18th birthday. You're a legal adult, and you can move out whenever you want. In the United States the legal age is 18, in some states it's even 17, however there are stipulations at that age, for example, Louisiana Law states a child can move out of their parents home at the age of 17, however they cannot legally move outside the state until they are 18. At the age of 18, you become an adult, your parents have no legal control over you. They can not even legally claim you as a dependent if you work and file your own taxes. With ONE main exception to this law, they can claim you as a dependent if they provide more than 1/2 your support and you live with them for more than 6 months out of the year. Otherwise, you can move out at anytime.

If you have a kid as a teenager are your parents the ones who decide what to do?

If you are under the age of 18, your parents have control over you but do not have control over your child. They are not required to assist financially or care for the child. Parents cannot force abortion or have any input on what a teenage decides to do, it is completely their own choice. A court, legal document etc. can give the parents of the teenager who gave birth to the child authority and allow the grandparents to care for the baby. When things like this happen and neither one of the parents of the baby want to raise the child, this matter usually ends up in court. It is very complicated!
