I am in my mid-30's and grew up in Sweden. When I was 16/17 I had friends that legally moved away from their parents (parents' legal financial responsibility ended at 16). They found their own apartment or room to let.
I do not understand why the teenagers in Portland are not able to live a normal life with their own apartments and their own jobs/education? Are there legal obstacles or social pressures keeping these teens outside a stable lifestyle? Why are there people trying to pressure them to go back to their family?
