Cindy’s Choice: Honor Student Sues

Here's Cindy's Pick of the Day for discussion:

An 18-year-old New Jersey honor student and cheerleader has been tossed from her parents’ Lincoln Park home, but demands that her mother and father continue to pay her private high school and impending college costs — as well as her mounting lawyer fees, according to her lawsuit. Rachel Canning claims she’s been out of her parents’ home since her 18th birthday, Nov. 1, after her parents vowed to cut her off “from all support both financially and emotionally.” But Sean and Elizabeth Canning say their “spoiled” college-bound daughter doesn’t live by their house rules and left the home because she didn’t like the law of the land — overseen by her father, a former Lincoln Park police chief/New York Daily News. More here. (AP photo: Rachel Canning looks on during a hearing at the Morris County Courthouse in Morristown, N.J., today)

Question: Did you ever have to show one of your kids tough love by giving him/her the boot from your home?
