What is a word that covers nieces and nephews like siblings does brother and sisters?

Nibling denotes gender neutral noun of the son or daughter of a http://www.answers.com/topic/sibling, more commonly known as a http://www.answers.com/topic/cousin or a http://www.answers.com/topic/cousin. The term was coined to accommodate those instances where the gender of the child of a sibling is unknown such as when a sibling is first pregnant with a child. It is also used to avoid awkward inclusive gender-parsed phrases. A statement such as "I am going to visit my nephew and niece this weekend" can be easily reduced to "I am going to visit my niblings this weekend". It is a very aesthetically pleasing term given its rhyming nature, symmetry to the term sibling and its dimension of meaning. The term conjures images of small cute creatures that affectionately nibble one out of house and home.

Emancipation and Ages for Moving Out
South Carolina
Analogy

Can you move out at 17 in South Carolina?

Generally, no. The age of majority is 18. That's when you're considered a legal adult and you can make all your own decisions. Your parents are legally responsible for you until you reach eighteen. In some cases a minor can be legally emancipated but South Carolina has no distinct provisions for the emancipation of a minor. You would need to contact a family lawyer or legal services advocate in South Carolina to ask about this. Otherwise you can't leave home without the consent of your parent or guardian until you reach eighteen years of age.

Added: The legal age of majority in South Carolina is 18.
