how do I tell my mom that I want to live with my dad?
you have to be straigh up. she wont like it but if its what you want to do then she will have to accept it. I did this when I was 14 and my mum hated it but she knew she would lose me if she didnt let me try it. just tell her that you havent had as much of a chance to get to know your dad as you have her and that you would like to try it if just for a month or so. hopefully she will understand.
by the way for me it was a huge mistake as I thought I would get away with more being with my dad but I can tell you I did not. lol. it was hell living with him.
I understand your predicament. I'm 13 and want to live with my dad.
I was going to last summer, but I didn't want to leave my school, but now my mom's decided to move.
So now I want to live with Dad, but I don't know how to tell my mom.
I know I'm just going to tell her right out. You should try it too.
Tell your mom that you need to spend time with your dad. Likely she'll want to make sure you're happy.
heeey ! kaaay this has totally happened to me before and I've been in the same situation all I did was told her I needed to talk to her and said " I miss my dad and I've been living with you for a wjhile and I want to move in with him I will still see you a lot I just want to move in with you I hope I didn't hurt your feelings " I hope thgats some help to you <3 but other then that just tell her how you feel ! Xoxox
omg I just did and what I did is I went into the office so that she was slightly busy so she wouldnt be as focused. I eased her into it and gave her reasons.
GET A LIST OF AT LEASE 5 REASONS!!!
RUN THROUGH THE CONVERSATION IN YOUR HEAD TO GET PLAN B OR C AND HAVE COMEBACKS FOR YOUR EXPLANATION.
TRY TO TALK 2 HER TELL HER HOW you FEEL TELL HER you MISS your DAD SHE WILL UNDERSTAND "I HOPE" SHE MIGHT THINK THAT you DONT WANT 2 BE WIT HER ANYMORE TELL your MOM you LOVE HER BUT you NEED SOME TIME WITH your DAD! HOPE I HELP K.I.T. TAKE CARE
I would suggest as kindly as possible.
Sit down and write a list of all her likely objections so that you can think about each one and find a reasonable answer, that way you can discuss it rationally without everyone getting too het up.
Tell her how you feel and be sure to tell her that you love her no matter what but you'd rather live with your dad. Be gentle about it and try to be very sensitive with her.
