  • Moving out at 16

    I live in Ontario Canada. Until I was 13, my mom was abusing and neglecting me. I’m almost 16 (about a week from now) and while living with my dad, I find myself in a similar position of neglect. I have no family close to where I live, 4 hours away is the closest I have. I’m not willing to go so far since I have the rest of my highschool set up, and I’m very passionate about it. I could move in with my boyfriend, but it’s not the best decision. I just don’t know what to do, I can’t stay with him anymore, he doesn’t listen to me even when I try to reason with him. Please help.
