    having a child does not emancipate you. they are under their parents control until the age of 18

      It depends on the situation. I had my first child at 17, and I was treated as an emancipated minor. It could have been because I was older, but I had all legal rights to make decisions regarding myself and my child. I did not need to confer with my mother if I did not have to. That was nine years ago, but tell her to look into it. She might be able to do something now. Couldn't hurt to try.

        The decisions that you have spoken about, were the only emancipation rights that you have from having a child. It is not the same as emancipation, to move out before you are 18. When you become a mom, they legally give you the right, to make MEDICAL decisions that concern you when you are pregnant, or your child, that is all, until you are 18.
