    This matter is soooo heart breaking!! We to had a daughter take off the morning of her 17th birthday. It is so discouraging for numerous reasons. It also starts an epidemic with all their friends and pretty much takes away the parents rights. We feel that if they can leave and act like an adult then they should be responsible for their own actions including financially and they shouldn't get free hand outs from the state until they have proven the reason they left home where they had a roof and food over their head is unfit. The so called 17 year old adult should prove they have looked for work before they can get state aide. We also agree what is up with this at 17 they can declare theirselves homeless? Homeless is living in a card board box which we would love to take these 17 year olds and make them live in one so they know what homeless actually is!!
    We are urging- begging anyone who has been through this or is currently going through this to contact your state representative the grey area between 17 and 18 needs to be clarified. The age needs to be either 17 or 18 not in between!!! We don't believe 17 would work due to the majority of 17 year olds that are still in school what a mess that would cause they could come and go as they please from school needless to say they can already from home because they can leave home but you can't kick them out! UGH

      No questions really I would just like to get the word out for anyone going through the same situation to contact there local state representative to help get this grey area cleared up and defined.
      After the initial shock (about 2 months) we still have to deal with all kinds of things but in her eyes she is an adult and as long as she knows the police won't bring her home she continues to move around, fail classes, skip school and we don't know what by night. Her perception of the what she hears and what is actually said it two different things. So when the court system told her she was considered an adult in the criminal world she thought that meant in all aspects. So she keeps trying to do things she cant' do without our permission or signature.
      And the fact that the school can call this children "homeless" just iratates us.
      Just looking to let loose of the frustrations knowing there are others out there going through the same thing and not a thing we can do about it.

        I am in the same boat. The law is not on the side of parents of 17 year olds. If they leave and won't come home, the police will do nothing. If you kick them out- you are negligent. And no, I don't have a question, just stating that this is a relevant subject that has not changed.
