The best thing you could do for yourself is go to school and since you have a child, you will get financial aid with no problem. This will help you have a great future for you and your child. Do you have a Pastor from church or a friend who you could talk to about mom, who could be understanding and maybe give you some advice on how to handle things while you still live there. Moving out isn't all ways the answers,, because when we run away from one problem before fixing it makes a bigger problem and I can see you don't want that so my advise would be to stay home work things out with mom with help from someone get your drivers licence, go to college. It will not be easy but worth the effort. And I know from you asking this question, I can see that you care.
