Minors in the US have the same rights under the US Constitution as do adults with the exception of those laws that have been enacted by state and/or municipal governments where the minor resides. Some examples of laws restricting the actions of minors are, the established legal age to consume and purchase alcoholic beverages, engage in sexual activity, purchase and/or use cigarettes, marrying without parental consent, compulsory education age, curfew, etc.
