please tell me how old you are

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
i am 36 and the parent of a 17 teen year old child who has ran away from home
Expert:  Sam replied 8 years ago.



18 is the age of majority. if your 17 year old is not emancipated by the courts, then you would be responsible for any behavior that might cause problems. you need to report your child as a runaway to the police.
