  • Want to runway, im 17 and turn 18 next month, can my parents call the police on me?

    I live in Illinois and I’m 17 years old. I turn 18 next month, I want to runway away from my parents because I don’t feel emotionally safe here. I’ve gone through depression and crying all the time but I want to talk to my parents and tell them that I no longer want to live with them and that I’m going to move out but I’m scared that they are going to punish me or do something to me. What can I do?

    Hello,
    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

    It sounds like you have had a difficult time at living at home with your parents and you would like to move out.
    There is however your feelings about telling them and perhaps facing some kind of consequences.
    It sounds like you are going to be eighteen in a month.
    Would you be willing to wait until then to tell them about your plans?
    Speaking of your plans it would be good if you had some idea about how you are going to survive once you move out.
    Does that make sense?
