  • i’m 18 and i’m afraid and I get kicked out

    Soooo this is probably stupid but my mom did a deep clean of my room and I’m currently out of town and I’m pretty sure she found my old Vape stuff and I don’t know I’m just scared that if I say I’m 18 if I want to babe I can and I feel like by saying that they’re gonna say OK you’re an adult then get out of our house and if that’s the case what should I do I mean I don’t even have a lot of life experience I got my first job Wednesday and I’ve only worked two days and it’s not enough money to live off of and I don’t know scared and it’s like they still treat me like I am 13 years old were they can’t trust me with a cell phone I have to get all of my apps I want to download approved by them they constantly track my phone because iPhone is amazing that was sarcasm by the way but I’m just scared about getting kicked out and I don’t know what to do so if anyone has a device that would be great and this was a very well needed to rant I’m just really scared

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out, we hope to help as best we can. Since you are 18 you are more than likely considered a legal adult which means that you can move out if you want to and you won’t be considered a runaway. As a legal adult, you have a right to make your own decisions about where you live. If your parents were to kick you out of the home there are some options if you have not thought about living alone yet. We can help you make a plan for how to deal with your situation and help you find resources to land on your feet. Having a plan for where you will live and how you will survive once you move out can be very helpful. Moving can be a huge step, and you don’t have to be alone. Some steps you can take towards independence might be to find employment if you don’t have an income, or to save up money for moving expenses. It can also be helpful to research rents in your area, find a roommate, or make a budget. Another thing you might want to consider is what kinds of things you depend on your parents for currently such as tuition expenses for school, or health insurance, and whether they would continue to provide those things after you leave. There may be social service agencies in your area that can help meet some of these needs, such as Transitional Living Programs, a kind of shelter where young adults can live and get services to help them transition to independent living.

    Things seem to be tough to deal with at home, even if you just need someone to talk to please don’t hesitate to contact us! We are here to listen and help however we can.

    Stay safe,
    NRS
