Where can I find out about a child's rights versus a parent's rights? I asked all of his doctor's, therapists, & the school but they all have different answers as to how far my rights go when it comes to me making decisions for him. He's only 11, he'll be 12 in may. The police said he has no rights that I can't take away except the right to breathe, but I think they were just trying to get him to listen. I went online, but I could only find info on rights you have when working with welfare. He's been trying to refuse to take his medications, but he's WAY to dangerous without them so I've been litterally forcing him to take him. His doctor's & the school said force him if you have to, but his counsler said it's his right to decide. I told her that if she was willing to keep him when he wasn't on medications that I was fine with her keeping him, otherwise the rule is take your medications---NO exceptions!!
