I am 27 years old and I feel that it is time for me to move out of my parent's house...The problem is every time I try to save some money to move out, they always say that I owe something extra and I have to pay out...or if i tell my mom that I do not have any money, she will get upset and say that I am hiding money from her...my god, they even asked to see my pay stubs from my job...I figured to myself what difference does it make if they know how much I make or not as long as they are getting the money for certain bills....How can I go about doing this? HELPPPP!!

Hi queenmika! Wow its so time for you to get out of that house.LOL That is riduculous they ask to see your pay stubs. What is their problem? I think you will be alot happier if you had your own place. Let me know how your doing on it. Take care.

Some parents will cut the apron strings themselves and kick the birdies out of the nest then go on vacation. Other parents try and keep you under thier wing until you end up getting angry and moving out in the middle of the night. Sounds to me like you need to sit your parents down and tell them that you want to move out and it's time to let you go. Promise them that you know your way to thier house and will visit as often as possible. At least thats what my kids told me when they moved out, and they do come around and I go visit them. It was hard for me to not have them here I always knew where they were and I felt safe knowing all my kids were safe and sound in thier beds when I went to sleep at night. Maybe your parents feel the same way I was I got over it and I still miss them but I also like my freedom and I know I raised them right. It's best to make the break on good terms rather than bad ones. Do you have some siblings who have moved out and could maybe help you talk to your parents? If so that might make it a little easier for them.
