Hi, I'm really confused at the moment. I've wanted to go to school to do A-Levels for so long. Now I've changed my mind. My mum's furious and says unless I get a job and pay my way I'll have to move out. I don't want to get a job though. What can I do about this? Surely she can't kick me out.

You don't explain why you have changed your mind about A levels or what you want to do instead? It is really hard to make up your mind now about what you might want to do in the future, but your mum is probably worried that if you do nothing then your options will close down. Your mum probably does not want to chuck you out of home, but she is worried about you.
Try talking to your mum, explain why you have changed you mind and you can maybe talk over your ideas of what you would like to do instead. There are many other options available these days such as BTEC courses and apprenticeships ( see link to our page on 16+ options). I am sure that by talking together you can sort this out and it will help you feel less confused.
