At 16, even though you think you are totally mature, your emotions still run wild from hormonal changes, peer pressure, etc. Have you ever heard the expression "Be careful what you ask for, because you just might get it."? It's true.

When I was 16 I knew everything, and no one could tell me anything. Then as I started to age, the older I got the dummer I became. One realizes that whatever was earth shattering at the age of 16 was so trivial it's stupid. Oh, here's another quote I love: "Want perfection? Hire a teenager, they know everything."

If you are having a problem with your parents or guardians, have you tried to sit down calmly with them and discuss your issues? If you have, and it didn't work, get a second opinion. Ask someone OLDER what they would do if they were in your shoes.

Finally, you may not get what you want--deal with it. Sometimes not getting everything you want is a blessing in disguise. Good luck.

A minor has the same legal rights as an adult unless said rights are restricted by federal or state statutory laws.

For example a minor has the right to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, right to a public education, right to medical care, right to legal representation and so forth.

A minor is restricted by law from purchasing alcohol, voting, operating a motor vehicle, etc.

All minors are considered to be in the legal and physical custody of their parent(s) or legal guardian until they reach the age of majority or a court rules otherwise

At 16, you also have the right to make your own doctor appointments ( Planned Parenthood), get your liscence, move out with parental consent, and work a 40-hour week.
