  • What do I do?

    I'm almost 15 in November and I live in michigan, I was in public school until my dad pulled me out and made me do homeschool, since then we have been fighting everyday, i can't take him anymore I don't see my friends or pretty much anybody anymore and I've tried many times trying to talk him into putting me back in public school but he won't listen, even my family says that he just wants to feel in control, and I've tried to move in with my family that also live in Michigan but he won't let me, I don't want hit to just f*** up my life there's not much I can do I think I'm gonna just run away but if they do cetch me what would happen?

    It sounds like you are having a difficult time with your dad and that you aren’t getting much of a break with him since you are homeschooled. You mentioned you have tried to talk to him many times about putting you back into public school, but he won’t listen. We imagine that is quite frustrating. It sounds like you do have family nearby where you might stay, but are concerned about what would happen if you ran away. Typically, running away is just a status offense and the laws instead affect adults helping a runaway unfortunately. If you are caught, police most commonly take you home. However, those helping you could be at risk for harboring a runaway, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, etc. So, one option would be to talk to the family willing to help you to see which risks they are okay with and which they are not. Hopefully that provides you with a start.
