Arielle,
I'm going to live at the Franklen apartments and I'll live off SSI.
That's my plan of action. My mother Isn't allowing me to be endependent
or do things for myself. She has recently told me that she wants me out
of her house. My neighbor has recently told me that my mother has told
me that she is going to kick me out of her house. What do you think
about all of this?
Koby.

Hi Koby,

I apologize for the bluntness of this message but I feel it needs to
be said. Several times in the last two years, you have come to us
saying you had plans to move out of your parents' home to live with
various girlfriends, friends, etc. and asking us for advice on how to
break the news to your parents. However, none of these moves out have
actually happened and it appears you are still living with your
parents. When you keep saying you have plans to move out and then not
acting on them, it is hard for me to take your questions seriously. As
I have said repeatedly, it is wise to come up with a plan of exactly
where you will live and how you will pay for it, and then calmly
discuss this plan with your parents. I do think it would be good for
you to move out and live on your own, and I sincerely hope you can
come up with a plan that works for you. However, I don't think asking
the same question multiple times really benefits you or any of us. I
am not sure there is anything else I can do to help you until you have
actually come up with a solid plan of where you will live and how you
will pay for it. If you can't figure out where you will live or how
you will pay, then it sounds like you will need to stay in your
parents' home until those things are figured out. If you can
demonstrate to your parents that you are independent and responsible,
then they should start letting go of you a bit. But from some of your
messages it sounds like that isn't happening yet. I suggest that you
work hard on your studies, saving money, and researching places to
live so that when you are actually able to move out you are really
ready to do so and then your parents shouldn't be as difficult. I
would be happy to help you again once you have come up with a clear
plan of action.

Best regards,
Arielle
