    RE: im 16 and hes 18 and my mom doesnt aprove

    Hello there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. Things must be frustrating for you right now with your mom threatening to call the police on your boyfriend. From what we understand, it sounds like you are wondering if your mother can take any legal action against your boyfriend because she does not want you to be with him, correct? This is difficult to speak on specifically, but since you are under the age of majority which is 18 in most states, your mom is still considered your legal guardian who does have rights to legal decisions made for you. However, each state sets an age of consent differently. We are not sure what you may think she would call the police on him for, but you may be able to learn more about age of majority and age of consent through an online resource called Sex, etc. via There you can click on the state you are located in and look at your state laws on your rights as a 16 year old. You may also find some support from teens going through similar issues. Another option can be to contact your local non-emergency police anonymously to inquire about age of consent laws and any potential legal consequences against an 18 year old. We are always here to listen and to help as well. We operate 24/7 so you can call us at any time or even utilize our online chat service.

    We hope this helps and wish you the best.

    Take care and stay safe,
