The Wells children are by far more mature, responsible, reliable and sensible than their parents. They protect and take care of themselves, each other, and even their parents. And yet, according to the law they are underage, and therefore dependent on their parents. Is it time to examine children’s rights? Should some children be granted more rights at an earlier age?

Children's rights have come to the forefront in recent years, evident by the fact that more and more children are being removed from their biological parents and placed under the care of others. More often than not, this is put into play by agencies that advocate for children. In other cases, children take the lead and advocate for themselves. I am not qualified to judge at what age a child can make these decisions as an individual. These decisions are made by panels and finalized by the courts.
