I am 16, and my life is going pretty good. except for at home, I love my dad, my bro, but my mom is driving me insane. I have been to the point of moving out, but only have 300 and not enough for an apartment and I dont wanna impose on anyone. My mom is too protective in a way where it damages my well being. When I tell her about this she cant control her anger, and is quite verbally abusive, and yelling. She does not give me any privacy and goes through my room, and asks me about anything that is suspicious. I have tried to work this out with her, but it always ends up with her yelling at me, and it hurts. My friends have even commented on her, I blame it on her shit of a job, flight attendant which she finally retired from, it was awesome cus she would be gone for 3 days at a time. I just want to know what an emancipation is and how to attain one. And/or how do you reccomend living away from home at this age. I really dont know what to do, so any help is appreciated. talking has not worked, I have tried many times, my Dad is afraid of her so he wont do anything.
