Hello, I am 16 years old in Minnesota, I live with my two parents and my two brothers. I have not been getting along with any of my family members at all for the past year and a half. My parents are always finding things to yell at me about, honestly it's every single day, we try to sit down and have a conversation to figure things out, but it NEVER works, everything just goes back to the way it was. They have me grounded right now, and I have been grounded through my whole entire school year because of my grades, my grades have been bad because of the stress i'm going through with my parents. They both call me names, tell me they don't want a daughter like me, continuous verbally abusing me, nothing ever works. Can I live with my aunt? I feel I will be more successful. Please help ASAP.
No, your aunt does not have a right to take you from your parents and you, as a minor under their care, do not have a right to leave your parents to move into someone else's house. I suggest trying some form of counseling or family mediation perhaps.

No. You don't just get to pick another place to live. If your situation is that dire, I'd suggest contacting social services or a school counselor. Until something is legally done about it, though, you can't just move as you see fit.
