my mom wont let me leave.
im 13 years old and my parents are divorced. i live in a small isolated town of 1,100 people and i feel i have much more potential. my father lives 4 hours away in a town of 80,000. like my older brother did when he was my age, i want to move there for grade 9. he said he didnt like it but seeing the differences between us, he thought it was a good idea and so did my father. the only problem now is my mother. she has told me she thinks that its a bad idea for two years now to a point where she is saying that sho wont allow me to go at all no matter what my father’s opinion is. id really like to go there because i feel the people here are holding me back. right now, i have a class of only 8 people, most of them nearly dumb as bricks. id like to meet new people, have a new variety of friends to choose from. many of my friends smoke snd drink and some even do drugs. though im not very influenced, they still arent the best people to be friends with. also there are a much larger variety of classes and clubs there which could help to reach my full potential. my long term goal is getting into a good university and i think moving could help me stand out more. my mother keeps saying my grades will go down even when i insured her that grades would be my top priority (it even got to the point where i said she could pull me out if my grades went down) but she still wont let me leave. she never did this to my brother. what do i do??
