is it socially acceptable in your eyes? and how to go about being emancipated? i mean being emancipated from parents btw.

^ Do you mean emancipated from your parents because you could financially support yourself? (like the kid from the movie Home Alone)

Can you be more specific? Are you talking about emancipation in general?
I NEED more info.

i'm talking about like what the other guy said, except its not because of finances, i don't have anyone to fall back on and my dad is prone to fits of anger, on more than one occasion he has hit me, hard with intent to harm, this time he choked me...so yea, emancipation from parents

Go out, get a job, or even call child services. If he hits your with the intent of half killing you (or choking) you have all rights to go to the police. Or talk to your mother.

honor thy father and mother.

end of story.

just kidding.

I mean you don't give us much information, but first I would tell him what he did hurt you and how it affected you. This can sometimes help people to realize that what they are doing is hurting you and they may stop or seek counciling, etc.

And/or talk to someone about it you can trust, grandparents, or whoever.

Can call a helpline or look online for advice. Look in the yellow pages or online.

If you feel your life in in danger though, call the police.

I had attempted to run away once, but my father caught me in the middle of the streets once, tackled me down, and called the police and held me down until he came. He figured I was going insane.

So the cop talked to me and told me about emancipation. How you have to go infront of a judge and explain your reasons why and have a liable job that will support you and a place to live.

I could have done that, I have a job, and I really don't want to live at home. But my job isn't a reliable one, since I earn a little bit more than minimum wage. So unfortunately, I have to stay home.

All I'm saying, is to make sure you're making the right decision, that you have a safe place to live, and you make enough money to support yourself. Not enough money to have a place to live, but also money to eat and be able to do things. Because then you'll just be leading your life down the 'shithole.' So this is something you have to ponder. If your dad continues the way he is, call the police or talk to someone.

bleh he just needs someone to talk to and crap, and obviously he doesnt have one, cause he asks through forums

if he wanted facts about emancipation he coulda just googled it, but he wants personal advice and people talking to him about it

if he makes a sudden decision out of just pure anger/depression, hes gonna fuck up his future

so he just needs to get help from a rl person instead of these forums

^ He just wanted others opinions on the subject. It's not like he's taking advice.
