Ugh... If he's starting this now he's going to go eventually. If this is his first temper tantrum I wouldn't just allow it YET. BUT... it's going to get worse if it's already started and if you can control it by him staying with your sister that might be something I'd consider-eventually.
I HIGHLY suggest getting him into counseling and family counseling for the two of you together.
The hormones of a teenager.....Good luck
Tell him No. He should not be allowed to just move out becuase he is mad at you. He will likely be angry at you often for the next 4 years. He has to learn he can't run from his problems, he has to deal with them.
He's only 14!! That's really young to have a serious "relationship" anyway and he's still just a kid. Why is it your fault? Maybe he didn't like rules imposed on him? Does your sister want him to live with her? Fourteen-year-olds can't just move out.
He will just have to get over it.
I have let me teen daughter stay with my mom temporarily while things get heated at home. (she is 14 also) Sometimes it's good for us both to get that "break" we need. I love my daughter to pieces but the teenage hormones are crazy. I would let him as long as it's close and you and your sister are on the same page for rules. Good luck
