A seventeen years old is not of legal age in the state of Texas. The parents or legal guardian have the option of requesting assistance from DFS to ensure the minor resides in a safe and supervised environment, the family home may or may not be the best choice. If it is found that the parents of the minor in question cannot control him/her, the court may find it necessary to place the young person to a group or foster home until such time he/she reaches the age of 18. This may seem harsh, but, the parents of a minor are legally and financially responsible for the actions of the minor child, therefore having the intervention of authorities may be the best solution for everyone.
