IS RUNING AWAY FROM HOME A FELONY? AND WAT CAN MY PARENTS DO IF I RUN AWAY?
What are you running from? If there are serious things like abuse going on in your home you should contact your local authorities. No one should stay in situations like that. If you are just not on the same page as your parents, you may want to hold off running away. There are a few things to consider before taking off on your own:
Is the situation with your parents temporary? is this just a reaction to blow out with them?
How will you support yourself when you leave?
Where will you go? will you be able to pay for transportation, housing, food? with what and for how long?
I think a lot of young people your age think that leaving is the best option. I don't know if they have thought about the above questions. Its not easy being on your own. You have to pay your own bills, buy your own food, pay for your own housing. Those things can be expensive. Young people with little education don't have a lot of options for employment. Are you ready to postpone or even give up your dreams of education, making good money, etc. Those things are hard to achieve without the opportunity that going to highschool and not having to work to survive afford you.
I would really think hard about leaving. I would consider all the options and the costs to my future life. If you are not being abused, stay, talk to your parents. Talk to someone you trust, someone who has to earn money to survive . Get their opinion.
If you are looking for freedom from your parents restrictions, listen to them. Most parents have the best interest of their children in mind when they impose rules and restrictions. Talk to them. Maybe their rules are in response to something that might not be the best for you.
Think about your future. Are you ready to leave it all behind?
Your parents can ring the police and once you have been missing for 24 hours they will start a search... if you are in America FBI can be involved. Your parents will be worried, even if you have told them you have ran away. Once you are found... and believe me they WILL find you, they will take you to the station where social services will be waiting. Your parents also may be waiting. You will be asked questions... maybe even some personal ones you don't wanna answer and so will your parents and any other people mentioned.
If it gets far you are likely to go into a care home or foster family and probably will not return to your family and have little contact.
if you are considering to run away, please don't because even though it will seem a little harmless thing, it can twist your life and send it to hell
No its not a felony . Also what they can do depends on how old you are & what state you live in if you are 17 I believe in most states you are legal to move out . But if you are younger if you are found you will be taken home to your parents if they decide to teach you a lesson they can possibly put you in juvenile hall for a few days. I recommend not running away unless your parents are abusing you if so then contact your local authorities and report it.
well idk my sister ran away from home alot and she got put into a bunch of group homes from the time she was 13-17 then they let her move in with her boyfriend.
actually if the parents want to they can make you go to juvy for the night thats what happened to my Cousin april
