If your young child declared they were going to runaway.  Would you pack a bag for them?

No, I would ask if I could come! Sounds like there's an adventure afoot!

I am talking about too young to really realize what it means.

My schizpohrenic son told his counselor today that he wanted to run away. So she called me back and told me that he was thinking of leaving home and I told him that was fine, we would go home and pack his bag.

His eyes guy huge and he said "But I don't have anywhere to run to"

I said, "Well you can stay, it's up to you"

He came home and all talk of running away was over

*He wanted to run away because he had gotten in trouble this morning at breakfast*

My cousin used to threaten to run away all the time...me and another cousin used to babysit him, and he would get upset if he didn't win EVERY game we played. It got to the point where we would help him pack, make him food to take, and pretend to call him a cab. We would even walk him out and wave goodbye from the front door. Of course he never made it past the end of the driveway...he couldn't go through with it! Lol. So to answer your question, yes, I would! But only after my kid kept threatening to do it...not the first time! Lol...

Sure would. Reverse psychology works quite well.
