    Re: almost 18

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write in and discuss your situation. You mentioned that you are almost 18 and you are thinking of moving out, but your parents are not supportive of this idea. When did you decide that you wanted to move out? What happens when you speak with your parents about this idea? What kind of reservations do they have about your idea of moving out? Do you already have a plan for where you are going to stay? Do you think there is anyway of compromising with your parents so they feel more comfortable with the idea? It’s understandable that you may be thinking about having more independence and wanting some freedom. Perhaps if your parents knew your plan better they would feel more secure about the idea of having you out of the house. Do you feel sitting down with them and talking over the situation is still an option? If you feel you need to talk more about this situation you can always give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
