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!
no. they have decided they dont need my help anyway and i wouldnt let them leave.. maybe i would drive them to a homeless shelter to show em how it is and voilunteer to show him how to be grateful
Quoting itsallabtthem84:I would. Did it before to my oldest and boy did she change her mind real fast.
LOL. I am watching Ramona and Beezus

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*
Sure would. Reverse psychology works quite well.
