    The legal age in the Uk to move out is 16.
    I'm 17, 18 this year.
    How do I get my mum to believe I'm old enough to move out?
    She keeps saying it's 18, even when I am 18, she wont let me go:mad:

    Well if you're really moving out... why do you need her to believe?

    Good luck with it all :heart:

    If you're old enough then you are old enough. She can't debate that. But - I don't want to sound pessimistic - living in your own place is expensive. Do you know how you will fund that? And your food and everyday items and bills etc? Also, it can be quite a jolt to move away from home, it's surprising how lonely it can be unless planned properly.

    Hope you're ok

    I mean I want to move out, but she wont let me, as she thinks I'm too young

    well there is a difference between leting u and stopping you. You see no matter what she let u do, if you have the legal age to do it, u can.
    Most mothers will try their best to keep their kids with them, because even if having the propper age, im sure u dont have a job or a place to live. then she just worries about you because shes your mother and she loves u.
