    My 16 y.o. daughter left the state with her 19 y.o. bf. Not my intentions, but i feel she would of left anyway. She is staying with his family. She home schools via internet, but is getting behind. I worry about truancy. I talk with her often to encourage her to keep up. They want me to give her bf guardianship over her. I am not ready to do that. Hoping she will come back after realizing what is best. I still carry health insurance on her, which she states doesn't carry in different states. Which it does. But it's the case of they know more..suggestions Lost

    Re: Mom


    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds as though you are going through a very tough situation with your daughter right now, but it is clear that you only want what’s best for her and for her to do her best on whatever path she decides to take.

    It is natural to want your daughter back and if you truly do want her back home with you, if you have not already, you can file a police report for her because you are legally her guardian. If need be, they should be able to escort her home despite her leaving the state. You can also encourage her to call us and we can hold a conference call with the two of you and talk through the situation.

    We are not legal experts here, but we do have access to information for legal resources. So, if you feel that you may need more information, you too can call us and let us know. We truly want to ensure that you all are able to work this out.

    Again, we thank you very much for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. It takes a lot to ask for assistance, especially when it involves your child. You are doing a wonderful job of staying in touch, though, and also at encouraging her positive behaviors (staying in school) which is always great to see. If you would like to talk further about your situation, please do not hesitate to call us or chat with us. We’re here to listen and help.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
