If the child(ren) are abused they should go to Child Welfare (that's what we call it in Canada) or to a close relative. If they aren't and simply don't like the ground rules of the household and are always into trouble then no, they should be able to emancipate from their parents. I never did understand this emancipation act.

No. In states where you can seek emancipation by the courts you have to be at least 16 to apply and then be able to support yourself etc. All kids feel one time or another they want to move out. It's a part of growing up and not a reason for the court to emancipate you and leave you to fend for yourself. If you are abused in your home you can contact the CPS or police for help.

His mom abused him bcuz her parents abused her , so im guessing his grandparents abused his mom bcuz her grandparents abused her parents . And so on...................................................................................................................

Yes, it is proven that his parents abused him severely as a child.

If you have to ask... Then you are probably being abused verbally.

YES his parents abused him and he felt like they did not care for him so he went home whenever he wanted to because he knew that his parents would disregard him.

She can apply at the local courthouse and see what happens. It is up to the judge.

No he has very loving parents :)

not very good because his parents abused him when he was younger

If you are abused at the age of 11 it is very important to tell your parents. When you get abused you should get medical help and make shore you didn't get pregnant ( if you are a girl ). Also when you are alone in the streets make sure that you be back home early if you don't want that to happens again. One fact that i learned is that when child is abused yourself as a child might become a child abuser when you get older.

Children are abused in many areas. Parents allow themselves to do it to their own kids. Parents were raised in foster homes,were abanded,neglected,abused and hit on. So, when parents have kids they decide to do the same the way their parents did them because of hurt and lost pain. Especially dads. Most people do it over stress. But, they do not blame themselves for what they do to their children.

No......? justin was never abused

I think they are getting abused because there parents dont know how to be a parent and if they doabuse their child there stupid!!!!

If you were or are sexually abused, you'd already "know". You wouldn't need to "find out". I suggest you do talk to your parents about your concern over this.

boys get abused more cause boys are tuffer and don't say any thing about it. they often get abused by there parents, and there coaches even and by strangers.

About 10%, or perhaps as many as 40%, of abusive parents were themselves physically abused as children, but most abused children do not grow up to be abusive parents.

Children are physically and emotionally abused for a variety of reasons. They can be abused by parents or guardians. They can be abused by children at school, they can even be abused by the teacher. All of the following reasons come down to someone not being able to control their anger in a productive manner.

You are being abused if you get forced to do things you don't really enjoy, or if things are done to you that you don't fully want yourself.

No! Gerard and Mikey had loving parents

Yes you can but it depends on which state is allowing that

Their parents no nothing of caring for children.Their parents only wanted kids for the publicity.Their parents don't care.

No child should be "venerable" to child abuse. If they are abused it is not their fault, it is the fault of the abuser. It depends what background they come from, if they are abused it is likely their parents were abused when they were younger.

many people search for spouses with familiar or similar tendencies to their own parents

kids are abused sexual way or beaten up by their own parents ......other people that they dont know may hit them , too.

not the real parents and like to punish them
