My Daughter

My daughter turned 18 in Oct. She just didn't come home on the 11th of this month. She sent her Dad and I a text saying she wasn't coming home ever again. Since that day I have had one conversation with her she said we didn't give her enough freedom and she has now moved in with a boy she barely knows? My daughter before this loved her family,and spending time with us. I just don't understand any of this at all. She is hardly going to school which she was so proud of her 3.75 GPA. Cant understand why she would want to throw it all away. I don't know if I should keep trying to speak to her( she doesn't respond anyway). She just left no explaining ? We love her so much this is killing us

There has to be a reason why she decided to up and move out. Maybe she did feel she did not have enough freedom when she was at home. But depending on where you live, she is 18 and an adult now and does not have to tell you a thing about where she is, who she is with, or why she even left. I would let her have that breathing room and then try to get in touch again. Sometimes kids feel overwhelmed by the parents and family and the expectations that are there for them to meet. Sometimes they just do not know what they want to do and decide to try to live on their own.
