If your parents give you a gift, can they legally take it back if you leave?

Mount Airy, NC |

My parents and I have been getting into arguements since i don't even remember. Not to long ago, my dad told me that if i didn't like it how things were at my house, i could leave. and so I did. I was wondering if I could go get my stuff like my computer and tv all of which was given to me as presents. Are they legally mine?

I suggest you try and work it out with your parents.

And, those items are really items of the household, in my view.
