  • 14 wanting to runaway.

    I am 14 and smart for my age and i love my family don't get me wrong but i am depressed here and my sister just keeps picking fights with me and getting me in trouble with no consequences. I would like to know other than emancipation what can i do to get away from my parents without them tracking me down. I want to be on my own and i can support myself, i don't know exactly where i will go but i can find a place. I would want to know what to do in this situation it would be nice if you could write back to me.

    Hi, thank you for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you want to leave home because of issues with your sister and you feel depressed. Talking to your parents about how you feel may help. Here at NRS we offer conference calls between youth and their parents.Since you are 14, if you decide to runaway, your parent’s have the right to file a runaway report on you. Running away is not illegal but if the police find you they would return you home. If you decided to leave home without your parent’s permission to stay with a friend, your friend could get in trouble for harboring a runaway. You could also ask your parents if they would allow you to move in with another family member.
    If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us directly our crisis hotline (1-800-786-2929), is 24 hours. Good Luck !
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
