When I was mad at my parents back in the day, I’d threaten running away. A twelve-year-old just doesn’t initiate court cases without help.
After discovering that, the father told his daughter she couldn’t go on the three-day school trip, which ended yesterday. According to Ms. Beaudoin, the daughter “slammed the door” and went to live with her mother, who was willing to let her take the trip.
However, the school wouldn’t allow the girl to go unless both parents consented or she obtained a court order. That prompted the girl, with her mother’s support, to take legal action against her father, culminating in the ruling.
Oh the joys of modern society: Behind every man is a woman seeking to undermine his efforts.
