  • moving back home to graduate

    I am 16, and I am a junior in high school, living in Forsyth County, North Carolina, trying to move back to Horry County so I can graduate on time. I am being told that I might not be able to graduate here because of the difference of required credits from South Carolina to North Carolina. I want to be able to get out of my mothers control because I don't want to have to be a senior twice due to moving halfway through my junior year. This makes a huge difference in my life, I just need to know what to do. I've tried talking it over with my mother about moving in with my grandma in Myrtle Beach to be able to graduate next year, especially since the university I want to go to is in Horry County anyways. The home I am living in at the moment is decent when it comes to dealing with family, but I don't want to not graduate next year. I just really need to know if there is anything I can do about moving back and being able to be my own person and make decisions about my own education.

    Thank you for reaching out to NRS! Sometimes that can feel like the most difficult part, reaching out for support. Trying to navigate family matters can sometimes appear to be the most challenging thing in our lives. Then when what we feel is best for ourselves and how others feel contradicts, it only gets harder.
    You discussed what your options are with your mother and grandmother, this sounds like a great place to start. Speaking to your school or counselors to explore options might be good to think of if you haven’t already considered them. Also if you have considered any other family that might be willing to host you for the school year. However typically this would require permission from your mother. We are here 24/7 and are always available to chat or talk over the phone at 1-800-786-2929 or if you ever feel like you need additional support. – Take Care!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
