If you are dependent on mommy & daddy, subject to homesickness, or in any way unable to live & act independently with the ability to adapt to different surroundings, you are NOT a good candidate to study abroad. It requires unusual levels of maturity, independence, self-sufficiency to be successful in studying abroad.
With Skype, etc, you can keep in touch with parents by occasional phone calls. You can also fly home for school vacations (e.g. semester break, summer vacation), although that might get expensive. But if you cannot be without your parents (or other relatives, familiar friends, etc.) for weeks, even months, at a time, you better forget studying abroad until you are far more mature.
