    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.
    It sounds like you are having a dilemma over running away or going away to a couple of camps that you seem to feel you would enjoy.
    We understand that you might be upset with being grounded by your parents for sneaking out.
    It also sounds like you feel that the punishment is too harsh and that is the reason why you are considering running away.
    We get that in a sense you want to go to these camps and might by the same token be getting some time away from your parents and the punishment rendered.
    How does that make you feel?

    It might also give you and your parents some time to reflect on what transpired.
    Maybe the time away might give your parents some time to reconsider or compromise on the punishment. How does that sound?
    You are of course welcome to call NRS at 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) to discuss your situation.
    We can be a listening ear for you and a place where you can talk freely about your options.
    We are available for chat as well. You can visit our website to do so.
    We understand how frustrated you must feel about the rules your parents have set forth for you to follow. It was very proactive for you to reach out to NRS. Good for you.

    We hope that you continue to look for positive ways to work on problem solving.
    Contacting NRS was a good first step.

    Take Care,

    dont know whats more important to me

    so I am 16 and I live in Texas my parents are very strict and I just can't deal with it anymore a few months ago I stayed the night with my sister that lives right next door to me while my parents were out of state and I snuck out of her house to go to a friend’s house and my other sister that lives out of town came home late that night and caught me and snitched on me and my punishment is that I can't get my license until I am 18 and I can’t have a phone until I am 18 and I can’t go anywhere besides school and church until I am 18 unless I’m with my family that’s a year and a half of nothing a teenager and these are supposed to be my fun years and my mom is even thinking about homeschooling me even before I got in trouble my mom never let me do anything I am going to be a junior in high school and she won't even let me stay the night at a friend’s house so I have this person that is willing to help me leave and I know they could get in trouble for harboring a runaway, however, we have a bullet proof plan and we've tried all the loose ends the only problem is I have church camp next week and I haven’t missed a year of it since I was six and its my favorite thing in the whole world so we decided to wait until I get back from that but then I just found out that my parents planned another camp to attend in august its a camp for preachers kids only and I am a preachers kid and I think it'd be so cool to go to that bc I would have that in common with everyone there like at school being a pk is like being an outsider but there everyone is one and I love camps but if I wait until I get back from there school will be getting ready to start and I was gonna runaway and come back and go back to school when I turn 17 but now it’s almost pointless its like I have to choose between this one week camp or months being away from stiff family and idk what to do I just wanna have fun.
