Thats's awful!! Try staying with a good friend until you can get on your feet :)
Sorry OP, your mom really should have asked you in a less homicidal way.
sell the cat to a guy who will buy it for $5 and give the cat back $500.
I wish I had your mom! You're legal now! Carry on, move out, and start finally living your life!
I don't see the problem with moving out right after you turn 18, I did. I spent months before my 18th birthday looking for an apartment. A few days after I tuned 18 I applied for an apartment. My grandmother had to consign the lease, but I made it happen. I haven't relied on my family at all since I moved out. I think people rely too heavily on their parents nowadays, they are so use to being taken care of that can't grow a pair and learn to take care of themselves.
I think she just means that she wish her mom was less strict in a sense of being able to move out and all. Some parents are too overprotective, for example, my mom refuses to let me move out until I finish college and get a stable job or get married. What she doesn't understand is my dream own an arm factory may not kick off for a while.
That's good for you, but realistically most 18-year-olds cannot support themselves financially. This is especially true of college-bound teenagers - yes, as it turns out, at 18 you're still a teenager. College is expensive to begin with, then you want to force them to pay for both school and living expenses on the low wage job they'll get with so little experience? For some it is feasible, but for a large number of teenagers this just isn't. Minimum wage is not a living wage to begin with, so to live on it AND pay for school? Extremely difficult for someone who is, by biological definition, not yet fully grown to begin with.
I understand that not everyone can do it, but I went to college as well while living on my own. It was a constant struggle, but it's possible. I had a minimum wage job at the time. I paid for college and for my apartment as well. Most of my meals were ramen noodles and can vegetables. It took a lot of sacrifice on my part, but I was determined to support myself and I made it happen. I don't see why some of you guys are making it sound impossible to survive on your own.
Because for some people, it is impossible for the time being. My best friend turned 18 two days ago. She has no job and could not support herself financially. What she does have is asthma and many allergies that require her to take medications and three weekly shots. If her mother kicked her out, she could not acquire the treatments she needs and would be very sick all of the time. Don't judge lest ye be judged.
That's not very nice of her... Maybe you should piss in her car as revenge.
Now that's fucking cold. That's not a way to treat your child, you can't just throw them out as soon as they hit 18! You gotta at least make sure that they have everything they need to move out properly, you're still a parent after all. :/
Oh #26, so as soon as you hit 18 you already had a job that could pay for all of your bills and expenses, with an apartment, means of transportation, and a bank account? Good for you! Not everybody has that same luck and no parent should ever kick their child out of the house just because they turned 18. So shoosh away and please don't have kids, thank you very much.
It's not a matter of luck. It used to be called "taking responsibility for your life". Kind of a cute, antiquated notion these days isn't it? At this rate our grand children will never consider moving, they'll just take over the house when their parents move to a nursing home.
#83 It has absolutely nothing to do with "responsibility", as you cannot suddenly expect a teenager to suddenly take full reign over their life when they're probably not even out of highschool yet. It is not about "luck" either, it's about giving your children the right amount of time for them to prepare for their new life (so they have at least the BARE MINIMUM to survive on their own) and not booting them out of the house just because the government now recognizes them as a legal adult. Life wasn't easy back then and it's even harder now, and I have no sympathy for parents who use this kind of tactics to get rid of their children.
