Does everyone even if you are still with your parents and is it cruel to say that children don't have any constitutional rights?

You do have constitutional rights, but those rights may not be what you think. First, as Mr. Rafter noted, the rights you list are not in the Constitution at all. Perhaps your parent have limited what you can say. This is not a violation of your right to free speech, since your parents are not the government. I trust you have read the First Amendment:
After that, you should read about how courts have interpreted the application of the First Amendment as it relates to free speech:
By the very nature of Avvo, you have only provided limited facts and no documentation, therefore, our response to your question is treated only as a hypothetical, and as such it is merely general in nature. You should not rely on this response in taking or forgoing action in your circumstances without discussing this matter with an attorney. If we had the opportunity to ask you sufficient questions and review relevant documents so that we were satisfied we had all of the relevant facts and circumstances, our response might differ significantly. Without the opportunity to ask you questions, and review all relevant documents and memoranda, we are simply unable to provide any form of legal advice. Our response to your question does not create any attorney-client relationship between us, and we are not acting as your attorney. We reserve the right to decline representation in any case. By answering your question, we are under no obligation to answer further questions. There are very specific deadlines for filing a lawsuit, replying to a lawsuit filed against you, or taking other action in order to preserve your legal rights. You should contact an attorney immediately in order to be fully advised of your rights, and so that you are aware of those deadlines. If you fail to act within the required time frame, you might be forever barred from asserting your rights or defending your position. The attorney answering this question is licensed in Illinois and Iowa only.
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is not in the Constitution. That is from the Declaration of Independence.
No it is not accurate for your parents to give you their opinion of what the Constitution says, even if they are wrong, as they are.
Until you are 18 your parents are responsible for you legally and as a result they get to control most of the functions of your life. When you turn 18 you are free to leave.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE, NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE CREATED. FOR INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY ON THIS FORUM. Legal advice comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Mr. Rafter is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the US Federal Courts in Virginia. His answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles--NOT your specific state laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this education exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights. Mr. Rafter is under no obligation to answer subsequent emails or phone calls related to this or any other matter.
