  1. I've never walked at night and all my friends are familiar to my mother (at least in absentia), but I'm still studying in St. Petersburg, so I have experience in this matter. When it came time to get acquainted with universities and think about where to enroll, I immediately said that I also consider other cities and gave these arguments: 1. If I move to another city, I will learn independence and responsibility many times faster than I will sit on their neck until 22, or even more, years; 2. In my hometown, I have nothing to catch, there are no special opportunities, plus my specialty (Human Resources Management) is not profitable enough at home, but in St. Petersburg I will be able to break through. Voila, I am flawless and now live in St. Petersburg. So that they don't worry too much, you can call them every day, so they will calm down

  2. I once went to study in St. Petersburg. And then my brother followed me to study in St. Petersburg. We were quite independent and motivated to study. My parents let us go, although it was really hard and emotional for my mother. She was even ill for a while on a nervous basis. But she never asked us to come back. Now I have an adult son myself. And I wouldn't mind if he was going to enroll in another city or even another country. But I will worry terribly, this is at the level of instinct. Worry and support-this is the fate of parents.�

    Maybe, after all, in your case, the fear of parting is mutual? If not, then prepare a “business project”: where you plan to study, where to live, calculate the cost of living, funding (parents, part-time jobs, scholarships). For sure, there are family or friends in St. Petersburg or Moscow who could support you in the first time at least in terms of information and life hacks (I was supervised for the first year in St. Petersburg).

    The main fear is the fear of the unknown.
