how can I tell my parents I'm moving out
If its your style, or could be; make or buy a cake and invite your family to a special tea party. Tell everyone how much you love and appreciate them - or hand out thank you cards with the same written inside. The special occasion is that you are ready to leave home and start being independent. Speaking as a parent of 3 who moved out- lots of notice helps- its a hard thing to come to terms with and your parents will need time to ajdust to the idea before it happens. A lot of parents actually experience being heartbroken in the event of a child leaving home suddenly. Dont assume that your parents already assumed you were gonna leave once you got to 18 and have therefore already prepared themselves. I dont know what timeframe you had in mind, but it would really help if you were to say something today, along the lines of 'I am moving out soon, I expect it will be in about 2 months, is that enought time for you to get used to the idea?' I got the above quote from one of my own children when he was 19 , I was stunned at how he knew such a great way to do it! :-) so clear, so definate, so considerate!- I think its because he saw me sobbing loudly on his brothers bed when he left a few years earlier.
There really is no need to explain why you are moving out, all (nearly all) healthy kids leave home. Have a lovely life and make some memorable mistakes! Visit your parents often, they will always be you parents, and you will always be their beloved daughter.
just tell dem dat u think itz time for u to move out on ur own and dat dey don't have to worry caz they taught u enuff to know how to survive on ur own.and dat if sumethin goez bad dey will be tha first ones u call.tell them dat ur just tryna make them see dat dey have raised an wonderful and independent child
i'm moving out because i'm ready to be out from under my parents wing and live and make my own mistakes i want to be on my own but i don't want my parents to think that i'm just moving out cause i'm 18 or that i hate them cause i don't know what i would do if i didn't have them there to guide me
Tell them that! What you said above. That's perfect. Also before you leave give them both a big hug and kiss to let them know you love them. They would appreciate that. :D OR however you show affection works too. Lol. Good Luck with your new life ahead of you!
well first let me no why ur moving out in the first place in ill help u out
