  • I would stay at home and keep going to school.
  • Find a job that pays well and quit the other. Work studies tend to pay the best and are flexable for college students, but whatever you do, make sure it's something you love.
  • Unless it's that terrible, I'd suck it up, get through college, save money from your job and move out when you graduate with most likely a much better job because of that college degree. Doesn't sound like you could be home much anyway. Dropping out seems like a very bad idea.
  • if you have the courage to move out and live alone ,you also have the courage to make your relationship with your mother to become well .
  • Don't drop out! Try to get along with your parents. If you can't find a place that is in your budget. Maybe a friend has a room they can rent to you for $50/month
  • Look at what you are spending, if you are spending all your money on clothes, partying, fast food etc then if you cut back a little bit you could probably afford to house share with other students, you could try asking for an extra shift or so. Please don't drop out just because of your current living situation, because it is not forever. But your future is forever. I know when you are young a year feels like an eternity. Try focusing on a plan. Save up, study hard, of course socialise occasionally and buy yourself the odd thing as a treat but don't over do it. It is tough, I know, I been there and I didn't drop out god knows how I made it without killing my parents lol, but I got through it. You can too.
  • Staying in school is a definite priority. In this world today an education is a better bet at a better life and job. Your relationship with your parents may be a series of misunderstandings - I found that out after I left home. Try telling them what and how they do and say affects you and listen when they explain - you may find that they are projecting their personal insecurites and shortcoming and applying them to you. They don't want you to end up regretting your choices.
  • That would be a huge mistake.
  • Let's start by totting up your options. Your parents must love you because you are still at their house. If you are prepared to try harder to fit in, you will find you are in the best place where you can save money towards the time when you have achieved your goals at school and can afford to move out. How many young people do you know who (hate) living with the parents move out and in a very short time, realise how hard it is out there and want to return to the nest. You only want to get out so you can have a good time. Wait a couple of years and the good times will come to you.
  • NO! unless ins endangering your life then try and stick it out. if you drop out now you will spend most of your life working extra hours/jobs to pay for things you need. finish college and get a decent career out of it! it will be worth it in the end!
  • If you do, you'll regret it. Please try to make peace with your parents, you'll all three be better for it.
  • NO NO NO NO!!!! OMG, no no no no! I cannot say it enough!!! Keep your butt in school, make nice with your parents for the remainder of college. That is one decision you will NEVER regret. I cannot say the same for dropping out. And don't give me that crap about how you could always go back later, missy!!!! Life is REAL good about getting in the way of those plans. You'll keep putting it off and putting it off until one day you are pregnant with your second child and you are kicking your good for nothing husband out to the curb wondering where did the last 20 years of my life go???
  • i thnk u should keep with college coz whe u can get a really good job instand having a sucky job the rest of ur life
  • Two things....1) dropping out under these circumstances is shortimism.....2) there's scarcity of jobs, so the likelihood of you getting a reliable second job is almost non-existent!!!!!
  • Live in a dorm.
  • Your education comes first. Be thankful you live close to your college, so you can live there and not having to pay expensive rent or dorm charges. Sometimes, you have to suffer a little, to reach your intended goals.
  • Never do that. You are young, and young people learn faster than old ones therefore don’t delay your education. Continue your study since it is easier to make peace with your parents than finding jobs. With a degree you can easily find many good paid jobs.
  • Stay in school Violet :P Pease Please pretty Please
  • Life is all about making sacrifices to get ahead. Think of it this way: if you stay in school, get your degree, and land the job you want, you can buy the house you have always wanted. That will make all those miserable years at home well worth it. Anyway, there are plenty of people who no place to live so consider yourself fortunate.
  • Stay in school...once you get that degree noone can take it away from you! Also, consider learning how to get along w/your parents as a life lesson...if you can master the art of relationships that is MAJOR...you will be able to use that skill in the workplace...again I say, STAY IN SCHOOL!
  • Absolutely not. Stick with college. And be happy that you have parents that are so supportive of you.
  • Stay in school! Living with your parents is temporary, then you'll graduate, get a good job, and afford a nice place and a nice car in a few years. Drop out, and you'll be poor for the rest of your life.
  • Dropping out of college is always a bad idea
  • No! Don't drop out of school! I had to live with my mother until I was 24 because I was in grad school and barely making any money. The only way I got out was to move in with my boyfriend. Do you have any friends you could live with?
  • Since you're not a good enough student to get a scholarship or a skilled enough worker to be self-sufficient I suggest you shut the hell up and get to work!
  • Get a boyfriend. Move in with him.
  • No No No. Your life is long, now will pass. If you dropmout you will give yourslef a mountain to climb later in life. Actions based upon short term needs are rarely the best thing for your long term future
  • You shouldn't drop out. Just ask your parents for a bit of space and maybe they might take it seriously or they can help you get 1. a better, more paying job, or 2. put some money into your bank to save for another condo or apartment.
  • No, if you have the opportunity to go to college, stick with it. Just mind your P's and Q's and keep a low profile til you've graduated. Then move on. * Of course, if you hate it because you are being abused or there is some other serious problem, that's a different matter. In that case, go to a counselor at your school or some other trusted adult and seek assistance.
  • hmmmmm
  • What exactly is it that you hate about the situation? Your parents probably hate living with you too, but feel that the sacrifice is worth it to help you get a good start in life. Nothing's harder than raising a kid your whole life, then just when they see the light at the end of the child-rearing tunnel you get all nasty to them and make their life hell for their sacrifices. Your parents will probably be relieved if you go, but your chances of success will diminish. They are willing to put that long-term goal ahead of their short-term comfort and happiness. Do you think you might try to do the same?
  • if your majoring in a stupid degree....sorry...drop out of college and get a job, or choose a technical degree and stay in college. do not major in: liberal arts HCOM philosophy poly sci or kines The above majors will NOT give you a good job unless your at the top of your game. Major in engineering comp sci math physics biology biotech chem biochem
  • No you shouldnt drop out. Then you get to live a life of, not one but two low paying jobs. You can try a roommate situation if its that miserable at home. Best advice, FINISH college.
  • I am so..in the same situation. Ha ha...But honestly no..stay in college and get a good education. Then move out. Thats what I am doing. Trust me its for the better. No matter how unbearable it may be :)
  • No; don't drop out of school ... you NEED your education to get somewhere in life .. However; have you THOUGHT aboout getting a ROOMMATE and sharing an apartment or renting a room from someone else ... I've rented rooms to college students ... doesn't cost too much ... Maybe try MySpace Classifieds or Craigslist.org ... Best of Luck to you ... +5
  • Live with your parents for 2 years <put up with the bs> Be an Xray tech. You then would make enough money to live on your own and put yourself through college to complete your 4 year degree. If I had to do it all over again......that is what I would of done.
  • Talk to your college's advisors about financial assistance; you find that you can do it on your own, which will make your parents proud.
  • Unless there some form of abuse then you just have to suck it up.I would also talk your parents and see con you make the situation better.
  • Suck it up princess.
  • Wouldn't you rather get a good education so when you do move out you only need one good job so you can have a life outside of work?
  • No. Be patient.
  • Nope! Get that education now! I'm 37 and going back to school with a teenager, a toddler, a full time job, and a part time job. I have debt coming out my ears, I have a car on it's last leg, I've been doing office work for 20 years and I make a whopping $16 an hour to show for all that experience. I am a single mom, with two dead beat dads and most days all I think about is "I wish I could go back and change my decisions." It's not helpful to think like that, but when you struggle like I do... you can't help it. Granted I'm getting my education now (online), but it's hard and afterwards, I get to pay the financial aid for years to come too! You have an awesome opportunity in front of you. I don't know why you hate living at home so bad, but you are a college student. Find activities to do to keep you away from home. Take more classes, join clubs, heck find a job... whatever... just stay in school and get ahead NOW! My teenager is going to be going to college next year and I'm encouraging her to stay home. Inconvenient for bringing a date home, or whatever, but rent, groceries and utilities are expenses that I don't want her to think twice about. I want her to get that education and make something of her life sooner than later. I can't stress it enough... don't drop out of college - 20 years from now you'll regret that you couldn't find a way to make your situation work for your long term benefit.
  • Is living with your parents "cramping your style" or are you just not wanting to go by your parents wishes as long as you live there? You should be honored that you are blessed with parents that would allow you to still live at home and go to college. in todays world, this is rare. My son lived at home for a while and he worked a part time job. we did not need his money, but we insisted he give us $10.00 a week and assigned certain chores. his food, room and board were free. we also had certain ground rules for him to abide by. once everyone understood the rules, everything worked great. Bottomline is that sometimes you have to shovel crape, before you smell the roses. If this is not the case with you, i apologize.
  • If I was you, I would just try and tough it out until you finish college unless you want to work 2 jobs the rest of your life. If you finish college hopefully you'll never be in the position where you will need to move back in with your parents. Good luck whatever you choose.
  • No, don't drop out. You will severely limit your employment prospects. You're better off continuing your studies and putting up with your family for a few more years. Then, when you graduate, you'll be able to find a better job and won't end up having to move back in with your parents because you can't pay the rent with two low wage jobs.
  • Depends whether your being nieve or your parents are really bad asses, what are your reasons?
  • If you seriously want your independence and if you consider it priceless then you can obtain it and still get your dues paid. You must have the sense of direction to persist and get it done even though, for obvious financial reasons, it will take longer. The problem for most young people is that other things get in the way at some point - especially the he'ing and she'ing - and they do not finish and graduate unless they have the means and circumstances to get it all done within 4 or 5 years. You may consider going to a community college, where at least you can obtain an associate's in a shorter time on the way to your bachelor's, in case things come up.
  • easy solution. just tell them you don't like living with them and see how far that gets you from there. maybe you guys will start to get along. or maybe they'll just dump you out in the street. but i have faith in you. you can do it, then again, maybe you can't. it's a 50/50
  • its not worth giving up your future (college/school) i say put up wih living with them, i am in the same situation. but i dnt have to pay them anything for living wit them. i say stick it out, get your education done with so u can start a better job, one u can love
