Ok first of all he's my stepson, but I've raised him since he was seven. He'll be eighteen next week and says he wants to move out because we don't let him do enough to suit him. Ok, so we don't let him go out drinking with his buddies. Umm, I thought that under aged drinking was illegal. And we don't let him spend the night at his girlfriend's house. Yeah, he's a seventeen year old BOY. Any way last night before I leave for work I nicely ask who he's going to stay with, because did I mention he has NO job, NO money, NO drivers licence, NO car. And he has two more years of high school left. He want's to play football on top of going to school and work full time. Anyway, so I ask him where he's gonna stay and he says "I don't know, living in a cardboard box would be better than living with you assholes." He also tells me he'd have been better off not having a mom than to have me for a mom. Well excuuuuuse me for caring. Also if he's on his own he won't be forced to talk to people he doesn't particularly care for (meaning me and his dad) and won't have to put up with any annoying little brats running around (his sisters). What do I do. I've NEVER been that hurt in my entire life. I've took care of him like he was my own and NEVER asked him for anything in return. I just don't understand what I did wrong. Was I wrong to love him? Was I wrong to provide for him? I'm sorry this was so long, but thanks for reading and I look forward to any advice you can give me.
