She has now made friends and has a job so she doesn't want to come home over the summer. She plans to sublet an apartment for the summer and will rent a 4 BR apartment with friends for the school year. She doesn't drive, only has a Learner's Permit and it's time to renew it. Can we still pretend she lives here with us since we provide more than half her support? She gets a tuition only scholarship and maxes out loans and we pay the rest. We also buy all extras. She has a job making very little and just uses it for spending money. She needs to file her taxes which we plan to do when she comes home for Spring break. And the only reason she's agreed to come home for that week is that she has two doctor's appointments.
She doesn't feel like our home is her home anymore. That makes me quite sad.
