    I’m 18 and I leaves without telling my mother where I am going, all because she gets so emotional and wants to be over protective. But she want to call the cops on me known am a legal adult. What can I do? I just want to be free and independent from her!

      Hey there,

      Thanks for reaching out today. If you are 18, you are free and independent, as you say. We aren't legal experts here at NRS, but generally speaking, your mother can call the police if you leave, but they most likely won't take action. What is most important is that you are safe and have a way to take care of your daily needs: housing, food, clothes, etc.

      Hope this helps and if you have more questions, or would like to go into the situation in-depth, please do not hesitate to reach out again by chatting in or calling us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We're here at the National Runaway Safeline 24/7. Good luck.

      NRS
