    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

    From what I could read, this sounds like a good thing for teens to read.
    However, I encountered a problem when I followed your link. Twice Windows shut down because something was trying to "add on". I don't know much about computers, but did want to let everyone know that they might encounter a problem when following the link.

    Is there another link you could post, or is this just something that is unique to my computer?

            It might just be Xena's computer.

              Heh...Xena's got gremlins....

              FH...that had to be the all time best, most informative, honest, and clearly stated explanation of emancipation I have ever heard. I can't wait to hear about all the great things you are going to do in your lifetime. We can all say, "and we 'knew' him when...."

                Well, the gremlins must be gone, today the link is working fine. It's funny, just 2 days ago I watched that old movie "Gremlins", maybe they jumped from my TV to my computer.

                I finally was able to read the whole thing, it really shows what life is like for a teen who's trying to be an adult too soon. Unfortunately, I led that life myself after I got pregnant and married at age 16, so I hope some of today's teens really heed what it says.

                  It sounds like Blake would be a great member of Labor Law Talk.

                  He will make it in life.

                  Thanks CGB for the resource. Hopefully it wil clear up a lot of bandwidth. Now if we could find one for the 14 year old that wants to marry her 20 year old BF!

                    Blake is a member of LLT, though I will leave it to him to identify himself if he chooses to.

                    I told him recently by PM how proud I am of him. He's a great kid and I have no doubt that he will make it.

                    Blake is the ONLY kid I've ever seen on this board or any other that I could truthfully say I thought had the maturity to make it on his own.

                          I read it

                          I thought it brought a lot of struggles to light that are very realistic.

                          I commend you - Doing all these things is what it takes to get through the situation and these are things that will biuld character and provide you with the ability to make it, throughout the duration of your life.

                          Getting a scholarship won't be easy but it is obtainable. I was able to make it through college on a scholarship the entire way through and saw several students drop out that were being completly supported by parents.... They simply weren't trying because they had no value for independance at that point in life - you are learning the value early on. I think you will do well.

                            that does not change my mind

                            Even though getting emancipated is hard. For some people its the best thing to do.. i think for me it is the best.. my parents are unbareable most of the time.. and living by myslef would just be easier then putting up with them.. there is just way to many people living in my house.. the only problem for me is that my mom has a runaway report on me and also a hospital report.. i really dont know how to deal with that?

                              HMMM That is what my kids said. They changed there attitude, and life got better for them. I felt the same way about my parents. I got a job (two jobs) and spent more time away from home working. Not a reason for emancipation at 15

                              You go home, get a job and save your money until you are 18.
