Guy I work with tried to kick his step son out of the house (he’s in his twenties) but the cops told him that since it’s the only place he’s ever lived they couldn’t do it.

Canning’s father, retired Lincoln Park Police Chief Sean Canning, told the newspaper that his daughter’s claims are not accurate. He says she voluntarily left home in October because she didn’t want to abide by reasonable household rules, such as being respectful, keeping a curfew and doing some chores.

In recent months, Rachel Canning has been living in Rockaway Township with the family of her best friend. The newspaper reports the friend’s father, former Morris County Freeholder John Inglesino, is funding the lawsuit and hired the attorney who is representing Rachel Canning.

The story's priceless, in a very sick way. The girl voluntarily left home and is living with her best friends family. Her friends father is paying for the lawyer.

From the article”

“She’s demanding that we pay her bills but she doesn’t want to live at home and she’s saying “I don’t want to live under your rules.”

How do parents bear this nonsense? I’ve seen all the chaos I care to in life, and assiduously steer clear of the nut cases. When they are your family it can be really vexing!

My daughter ran out of my home last year right after her senior prom. I didn’t even get to go to her graduation.

Same situation: She was living with her friends family. They bought her a car, paid for all her stuff. Who does that with another parent’s kid? A lot of people do today because they believe the BS stories these kids tell them.

My daughter was able to get into college for FREE, because the family she was living with went to her high school and claimed she was “homeless” under the McKinney Vento act. It worked and they gave her free student loans and pell grants without our signatures.

This is more common than you would think...I am so sick of today’s parents thinking it is ok to Harbor another parent’s child!

My daughter is now back with us after 7 months...

Dumb broad doesn’t have a case!

She’s legally an adult at 18 and the parents aren’t responsible for her.

How did you get her back, neverbluffer? I had a college roommate who got herself legally emancipated and lived apart from her family — but she didn’t go back. She supported herself through college. It was a state school, though, and tuition and boarding were low enough back then that they were affordable if you had a fairly good job and she did, clerk-typist for a lawyer. Don’t know if she had any loans, but she graduated. She told me that her father was physically abusive and she was a rebel. Bad combination.

I was surprised to see how many parents asked their kids to move out when the graduated High School.
Guess many of them shouldn’t have been little shits as kids.

I don't know New York law, but I can't see this going anywhere for anything post "age 18". 18 year olds are adults. It's time to treat her as one - for good and bad.

On a side note, while I wasn't shown the door at 18, I left for good at 19. I demanded that I live my life my way on my terms. That was the way it was going to be. That's how I live my life today as well in my 30's although I'm a lot less wild today. That also wasn't going to happen under Ma and Pa's roof. I left. I also didn't sue my parents either as that's a bridge that I wasn't going to burn.

She finally realized that she didn’t want to be an adult just yet, paying all the bills on her own.

She also realized that the family of the friend that was letting her live in their home was not really looking out for her best interests or treated her like family.

We took a “let them hit rock bottom” approach and it worked like a charm.

When she hit rock bottom (no money, no family, missed family vacations, etc.) she decided how good she had it at home.

The problem is that there are so many people out there that just willingly usurp another family’s authority and feel it is ok to assume the parent role of someone else’s child.

Hey, I know what you mean. When my oldest was in college, she fell in love with this guy whose family she greatly admired, esp. his mom. She told me once that she’d ask his mother for advice if she ever needed it. (Suggesting that I would not be her choice or source for motherly wisdom.) After a few years she got to know everyone better. That substitute mom lost favor, as did her son. Nothing like experience to teach a child life lessons. It’s hard, but the only way through it is through it.
