Rachel Canning, seen here in a photo posted on her Facebook page, is suing her parents for college tuition.

A New Jersey high school honor student, who is also an athlete and a cheerleader, has sued her parents for school money after she says they kicked her out of their home when she turned 18, the Daily Record of Parsippany, N.J., reported.

Rachel Canning’s father told the newspaper that his daughter isn’t telling the whole story and that she moved out because she didn’t want to do chores or keep a curfew, among other disagreements.

“We love our child and miss her. This is terrible. It’s killing me and my wife,” Sean Canning, a former police chief for Lincoln Park, where the family lives, told the Daily Record. “We have a child we want home. We’re not draconian and now we’re getting hauled into court. She’s demanding that we pay her bills but she doesn’t want to live at home, and she’s saying, ‘I don’t want to live under your rules.’”
