Question for everyone - September 20th 2011, 05:06 PM

Do parents have the right to issue "no contact whatsoever" between there child and another person there child's age? Thoughts, please.

Seeing as I don't know the background.. I'm going to say yes. They have the right to pursue it. Though, if I am correct- they have to have a legitimate reason to do so. But really, that depends on your location, the judge and the situation.

Ummmm I'm saying yes too but I don't think it's necessarily fair or right. And then there's the fact that you can always get around it. xD

Rayleena, this is a loaded question without the details, you know. There must be some reason they've made such an extreme decision here! Parents can make whatever judgments they deem fit with a minor child and set whatever rules and limits they determine are consistent with their values as long as they are not in obvious violation of the law (as in grossly negligent, physically harmful, etc.).


PM me with the link of the post you'd like me to respond to.

If you're a minor your parents have a right to decide who you can and can't see. You have to belive that they're doing it for your best interest. If this isn't a legal matter (in the form of a restraining order) then it is possible to get around it because they can't be with you 24/7, but again they probably have a good reason, even if you don't think they do.

If parents do so its only because they don't want their child to get in the wrong company. Instead of fighting and screaming them for it, its better to sit with them and ask them the reason why they are stopping you and come to an agreement.

Your parents have the right to, but that doesn't always make it fair. Now, my parents just told me last night that they can't pick and choose my friends, so I guess that gives me a little more freedom, but I'm sure that if they didn't want me seeing someone, I wouldn't be able to.

I would say that they have the right, but it doesn't mean it's fair or that it'll work.

I would have to say yes too. As long as you are a minor, they have the right.

I guess. It seems unfair, but life isn't always fair. It should be only to protect their child. Other than that, I'm not so sure.

Well, assuming the child the same age hasn't done anything wrong and doesn't have a poor behavior then I wouldn't think it's fair. But that's just me.
But if they do have a background of bad behavior and the parents don't want them being an influence then yes.

Seeing as the answers seem to all be the same in this thread, and the OP hasn't been active in the thread for about two weeks, I'm going to go ahead and close this.

OP- If you have any further questions, or would like this thread re-opened, feel free to PM me! :]

Take care
