Rachel Canning: Home With ParentsBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - March 13, 2014
Rachel Canning, the teenager who recently attempted to sue her parents after they kicked her out of her house and refused to support her financially because she wouldn’t follow their rules, has moved back in with her parents.
Rachel is a high school cheerleader, but like most teenagers, she rebelled against her parents rules. Her parents told her that if she didn’t follow their rules, she would have to live elsewhere. Rachel moved out of her parents’ home but soon realized the real world was worse than she expected and that she needed her parents’ financial support.
She attempted to sue her parents to have her college tuition paid for as well as several other expenses. She said that since she had always been such a good student she deserved to have these things paid for. The judge disagreed and Rachel did not receive any money from her parents.
Rachel’s lawyer held a press conference and confirmed that Rachel had moved back in with her parents and that the family was happily reunited. He also asked that they be given privacy to deal with the issues on their own.
“This is a long process, it’s only the beginning,’ he said.
“This is a private matter. It should have never been brought to the court’s attention. It should have never been brought to the public.”
“Her return home is not contingent on any financial and/or other considerations,” Mr Sarno said in a statement released on Wednesday.
“They’re not athletes, they’re not actors. They didn’t ask for this attention… Please respect the Canning’s privacy.”
“This is a happy situation.”
The family has not released any further statements, but their attorney said that they did choose to come forward with the information about their daughter moving back in with them because they knew it would eventually come up and become a big issue.
