Answer: In Loco Parentis generally means that a person or organization is granted temporary custody. For example, when a child attends school, the instructor is granted In Loco Parentis. Contact the courts to determine if your mother has been awarded legal custody. If you are underage, the court will look at the child's "best interests" first.
