Question about teenager and LDS baptism/discussion

I've been out of the church for so long that I have no idea how baptism works anymore.  Just wondering if a 16 yr old would be allowed to be baptized into the LDS church w/out their parents permission?  We live here in the heart of Moville and my son is getting love bombed and a ton of pressure to go to church, let his friends practice discussions on him, and to read the BOM. He brought home a BOM the other night and I almost hurled.  Right now he is at church with his little girlyfriend and…See More

I've been out of the church over 40 years, I feel bad this is happening to you. I have found that if I stayed around church members they never stop trying to bring me back into the fold. It's kind of their job to bring you back. I just had a friend try again about 5 months ago. She failed. I wish I could tell you the rules of being baptized, but I do not know them. Good luck to you and your son.
