I need help. My daughter who is 17 years old wants to move out and 3 hours away to a university. She currently suffers from depression and anxiety and I had no clue she is in counseling and has been on medications for the past 2 years. She just recently just told me about it.
She is very mature for her age and and is a straight A student. She also has a path set up for her future and she wants to go complete for bachelors then enroll in med school. Her plan B is to go into pharmaceuticals. She is an amazing sweet girl and is my oldest but I am devastated. She's very independent and cooks/cleans. Me and her father worked a lot when she was younger so she had to grow up really fast. I know she is capable of taking care of herself but I still worry. She has come home completely drunk and invited boys over in the past. I am scared because now I can't keep an eye on her. Should I let her go and pay for her schooling? Should I make her stay until January (until she is 18) and make her enroll into classes the following year? I don't understand why she didn't apply for universities around here, closer to home?
