    Thank you for posting a bulletin. It sounds like you and your friend have a plan in running away. In order to rent a room at a motel you need to be at least 18. Here are a few other things to consider before running away that are from out website:

    • What else can I do to improve my home situation before I leave?
    • What would make me stay at home?
    • How will I survive?
    • Is running away safe?
    • Who can I count on to help me?
    • Am I being realistic?
    • Have I given this enough thought?
    • What are my other options?
    • If I end up in trouble, who will I call?
    • When I return home, what will happen?

    Do you feel that running away will solve your problem with your mom? It seems like you and your friend have a strong friendship. It is understandable to that want to not leave your friend with her home situation. Do you think that your parents will file a runaway? Have you talked to anyone about your plan?

    me and my best friend have been through everything together (we're 14)
    and now, we want to go through one more thing
    that's running away

    my situation:
    i grew up with a single mother, she had me when she was 19
    she never acted as a parent should,
    she just wanted to be my friend
    she would always yell at me and i became depressed
    i started drinking, cutting, and i smoked a few times
    the only father figure i have lives on the opposite side of the country.
    he says that if i mess up, he's gonna fly here and beat my ***
    i'm scared

    her situation:
    her parents are divorced, but she spends time with both of them
    her mom is nice, but her dad is abusive
    and a lot of the time, she isn't allowed to do anything

    she says she doesn't want me to leave without her.
    we seem to have the perfect plan; stealing money from our parents
    and taking a taxi to our chosen destination. we would stay
    in a motel when we got there and have a daily allowance
    and have a budget. we would stay as long as possible.

    it seems too good to work, and we don't know what to do anymore...
