Response . \nA seventeen year old is not of legal age in the state of Texas. Parents or guardians have the option of requesting the assistance of the DFS to ensure the less of age residing in a safe and supervised environment, the family home may or may not be the best option. If it is found that the parents of the child in question can't control him/her, the court may find that it is necessary to place the young person to a group or foster home until the time he/she reaches the age of 18 years. This may seem hard, but, the parents of a minor are legally and financially responsible for the actions of the minor child, therefore, the intervention of the authorities can be the best solution for all.
