    Re: need advice

    Its sounds like you are going through a difficult time at home and at school.
    If you feel you are unsafe at home or at school, by all means do what you feel is necessary. This could mean notifying the authorities, going to a friend, family member, school authority/counselor, about what you are experiencing for support.

    We hope that you that you make a decision that you believe is best for you. If you feel like running away is the decision for you there are some things to think about is about continuing education ,how long do you anticipate on being gone or where will you stay? How will you support yourself or whom you will be staying with be willing to support you financially with food, clothing, other expenses and allow you to stay rent free? What if things do not work out here in the future, what will be your back up plan? What will both your parents’ reactions be to you leaving? If you need help navigating this safety plan, do not hesitate to call us at 1800--RUNAWAY. We could also try to find shelters in your city and state that you are near by.

    We are not legal experts here, but typically being under the age of what your state considers to an adult (usually 18 ) , you would need permission from your parents to leave. It is not illegal to runaway or leave home without permission, but it would mean that your parents could file a runaway report. The police would then be required to return you home. H
    We hope this was helpful.
