dad abuse - November 9th 2011, 12:03 AM

so my dad is a fail father. he doesnt know how to be a dad and is pretty much the worst. i want my own place but its hard cuz i need a job and everything and im not even 18 yet so i COULDNT even get my own place if i wanted too... and getting emancipated cant happen because there isnt a legitimate "reason" for it. you have to be like married, or be in the U.S. armed forces for it. it bs. so should i just like wait till im 18 for an apartment? ...i dont wanna wait that long... i was thinking that my dad could get two apartments, under his name and i live in one and her lives in the other and i get a job and buy my own food and everything, i dont know if i could afford rent, and he pays for my rent. good idea? maybe? i just dont want to live with him anymore.

Since your 17, you've got less than a year till you can move out. I would suggest living with your dad until then and spending that time getting a job and saving up money for things that you will need once you move into your own place so that you will be prepared.

Basically, all you can do is wait it out and try the best you can to get along with your father. You're 17. Get a job, save up and start looking around for places. You'll be 18 soon. You'll soon be out of the house. I can guarantee you're not the only person who wants to move out of their parents house. Right now, just try to be civil. You do your thing and he will do his. All you can do is make the best of a bad situation and wait it out. It sucks right now, but things change on a daily basis.

Take care.
