    Hi I'm 15 years old and I am wanting to run away to a boarding school. My parents don't want me to go because they believe that I am 'not responsible enough' but I believe I am. It might not be there standards but I know all basic matter to life and everything else. I tried to tell them that I was going to the school no matter what but they threatened to call the police and k tried to tell them that it won't work with us living in the state that we live in. But I'm afraid that the school won't help me get away from .y controling parents and I just want a back up plan or somewhere else safe and close to run away to.
