The age of majority in the state of Texas is 18. Unless declared an emancipated minor, anyone under 18 has no legal rights to property or anything else.

The legal age of adulthood is 18. Some states consider 17 year olds legal depending on what is being considered.

Rights you get when you turn 18: · The right to vote. · You can buy cigarettes and chewing tobacco. · Buy/rent porn. · Be drafted in the military. · You can buy lottery tickets. · You're considered a legal adult. & more.

do you mean dating or to watch like babysitting. Some states legal age to baby sit is 12 which is legal. but it would be at your own descression on weither the 12 year old is responsible enough. dating. its not illegal until they reach the 16-18 year old limit then it will be. these are great awnsers but think 50 year olds date 40 year olds all the time im not saying 6 year olds should date 12 year olds but still its just weird

The same rights as any other mother?Could you be a bit more specific and I will try to help more :)Answer:Everything regarding the child is up to you to decide, no one elses unless you can not provide for the child.

16 year olds have basic constitutional rights.They don't have the rights that are reserved to an adult, voting, making a contract, buying alcohol, etc, etc.An adult is presumed to be able to carry more responsibility for their actions than a child. Privileges and responsibilities go together.Not to be abused, to be able to go to school, to be fed and clothed by their parents or the state. That's about it. Until they turn 18 or whatever age their specific state requires, minors have limited rights.

It all depends on the country and location where you live.
