I'm 19 and I am moving out within the next month, everything is set... only problem is... is that my parents don't know anything. They won't accept the fact that I'm leaving. I'm so excited to start a new life, but then again... I'm dreading the moment I leave my family. I'm gonna be 8 hours away from them in car. I wish I can tell them, but I know they will just get mad at me. They always say I'm not ready for the real world. So how can I tell my parents? Should I leave a letter? What if they try to stop me and follow me to the airport and make a scene? Please, serious answers only.

Don't tell them, if you think they are going to react like that.
Move, and then call them from your new place and tell them over the phone, but don't tell them where you are.
Hang up as soon as they freak out, and call them the next day. Explain very simply that you don't have to listen to their bullsh*t anymore, and if they can't talk like rationale adults, you'll hang up.
You need to train them to see you like an adult. And that means you NEVER lose your cool with them, but you hang up as soon as they start acting like d***s.
It may take quite a while for you to train them.2
