My daughter 17 senior HS has been pestering me to move this year to her aunts house in Georgia state we are in new jersey, it is a nice neighborhood and we love all there,, i always told my daughter when you graduate HS you can move there,,i don't want her living in Atlantic city anyway,,not a nice place.. and nothing much here to do. there is a 21 yr old man that has her heart i know they have dated off and on for 2 yrs,, she always went to Georgia every summer. well now they are in love and i know that is the main reason she wants to move so bad in her senior year.. Am i wrong in keeping her home until she finishes school, oh and to go to school there there was a custody ,court date and she would have missed 2/3 months of school.. (We did try to get her in school) after all that aggravation I changed my mind and want her here to see her graduation.. I think her friends and family have the right to see her graduate . We have all been here and been involved on the journey of her life ,,we would like to see her graduate here at home,, she will be 18 in januaury..Do you think i am wrong to keep her home,, I feel if they love each other they can fly to see each other Spirit airline is cheap.. please help

Sit her down and talk to her about what she is feeling, tell her how you feel see if you can come to some kind of compromise where she is not resentful of you making her stay it is a hard age one wrong move on your part and you can alienate her and she will just take off when she is 18. Encourage her to stay but listen to her reasoning for leaving tell her moving for a man is not a good enough reason, maybe there is more to it than this guy. My niece just moved in with us for her senior year because she wants the ability to pursue her chosen career and she was no longer able to train where she was living, it was a hard choice for both her and her mom but in the end she is going to be able to follow her dreams and maybe find a career doing what she loves.
