  • 16 and want to move in with aunt.

    My aunt offered me a place to live and to enroll me in school. I really want to accept her offer since I am having issues with my mom. My mom can be verbally abusive and used to be physically abusive. How could I possibly bring this up without her getting (too) angry? Or should I not bring it up?
