I’m 18, and I have already bought my tickets to go to New York. I posted a question about my trip before, but now I have decided that I am going to go anyways regardless of whether my parents are alright with it because I AM 18, and they know they can’t stop me.
However, I feel like they’re just ignoring the fact that I’ve told them multiple times that I am still going. So how should I tell them that I’m going? Should I just sit down and say “I know you don’t want me to, but I have decided that I am going to New York, and I leave tomorrow.” Or what?
Because I’ve tried to act like an adult about this and I feel like I’ve been more mature about it than my mom has, but I don’t want them to hate me for doing something that I feel like I need to do. I would like it if she or my dad or both of them would take me to the airport, but if they don’t I have my best friend who is willing to take me there instead.
I was also planning on making them a list of the person I’d be staying with’s phone number and everything, and an itinerary of when my flight leaves and when it lands and when I’m coming home – and a note that I’d call them all the time.
But really, how should I go about letting them know I’m leaving in a way that they won’t freak out too bad?
