New Jersey Teen Who Sued Her Parents Shouldn’t Have Gone to All That Trouble

By Caroline Bankoff



Rachel Canning — the ambitious New Jersey 18-year-old who fought with her mother and father, moved out of their house, and sued them for living expenses, private high-school and college tuition, and lawyers' fees only to eventually drop the lawsuit and return home — has received a very generous offer from Western New England University: "Decision made," she wrote in a Facebook post. "WNE U class of 2018 BME Major w/ 56,000$ [sic] scholarship."

According to the school's website, a full year of undergraduate education there (plus room and board) costs $46,154 (excluding heath insurance), so Canning is getting a full ride, and then some. Between that and her friend's father's willingness to house her and front her money for legal costs, it seems that the lesson here is that she didn't need her own parents after all. We're sorry for doubting her.

This is going to be one messed up young lady. The lessons she's learned are all the wrong ones. Pretty sad -

Yep.  She's hot, so she'll get some rich guy who wants a trophy wife.

Watch her be married within a few years to some guy 2-3 times her age.

Nope. She'll get mixed up with some low life drug dealer and leave a few kids behind when she finally goes to rehab. She doesn't have any sense of working for a future.
