Yes, I can see why you are a confused bird. I'm not sure if you'd like some information about relocating to New Zealand or if you have that sorted out. Perhaps you would like some tips for convincing a recalcitrant eighteen-year-old to join you on your emigration.
At any rate, good luck with what you want to do, whatever that may be.

Our 19 yr old son, initially didn't want to come. Lucky for us, it was his good mates in the end that persuaded him to live in NZ.
Winnie came over with her daughter last year, within 3 weeks she'd gone back to UK. It cost alot of money, but if she didn't go she would have resented her mam. The silver lining to this cloud - she came back in January for good, this time made an effort, now at college, had friends and happy.

You could always ask him to give it a go for a few months with the promise that if he really doesn't like it he can come back to the UK.. Expensive I know but it may work.
