my mum was pregnat with me when she was 15 my dad left when i was 3 mounths i never got this confermed by mum but i know it to be true mum started going out with a guy i learned to call 'dad' but i never connected to him he beat me
 
when is was about 13 my granddad died i was destoryed emoationaly i took a week off from school but i felt i needed two then when i was 15 turning 16 my granny died this brought up all the problems from the death of my granddad
 
shortly before my granny died mum and 'dad' split and i lived with mum
 
now i am having fight with my mum and she has said that when i am finished my GCSE's i will be kicked out all in all it is a strugle for me to even get out of bed in the mornings because i dont see the point if all i get is treated poorly

My advice to you is to look for a really good job. One that pays a lot to help you get through. Or something reliable so that you know you will continue to have work. Choose a good course to take. Get a grant or loan to pay for college. It sounds like she is throwing you to the wolves. But I am sure that she wont. But none the less, look out for number one, and that is you.

Have faith that you will make it on your own. How old are you now? She can't kick you out I don't think until you are 18. Some kids live at home until 21. But you need to think of you and get prepared for this. Start job hunting, and pick a college. You are most likely eligible for a grant for college and you don't have to pay that back. I believe that they are called "Pell Grants". You might have to take out a small student loan too. But you can pay that back over time.

Hopefully somebody will come on with some better advice than I can give. Take this one day at a time. Try not to worry, but do some research on this.

If you are only 16, I think your mom is pushing you out a little prematurely. But maybe she has her reasons. Is there any special college that she wants you to go to? Do you have a job yet? Sometimes you can work on campus. And yes, do look up the grants. I think you will find some help there and like I say, you don't have to pay them back. Good luck!!!
