  • I did when I was about 10,we lived beside a cemetary,and I had decided ,that's where I was going to live,They did not come look for me,I think they knew where I was,Needless to say I stayed till it got dark,and I was scared shitless,so I ran back home.I never ran away again.

  • I thought about it a lot. I used to keep a bag with clothing, crackers and tuna at the end of my bed when I was 7 so if I ever needed it I could just grab it an go. My mom found it and grounded me for 3 weeks

  • I didn't actually did the run away, but I wrote a letter about running away. My mother happen to find it one day and she and my dad actually told me to pack my stuff and leave. I was 11 or 12. To this day, they say it was reverse psychology.

  • i was seven, i camped out in the woods behind our house... my mum knew i was there, and my dog followed me. i told her that if she didn't send me to public school like the other kids that i would run away and they wouldn't have a choice. didn't work. was homse schooled any way- go friggin figure why i moved out as soon as i possibly could. now that i look back on it, it really is funny though!
