1)Have you ever run away?

2) Have you ever contemplated it when things got bad?

3) Do you see yourself being the type who would?

4) If you did run away from home, what would you take with you and why? What would be your plans...i.e would you go away for a brief period and then return? Never return?

Thanks in advance for helping with my research

I ran away once, I decided to go to my aunties house which is 7 miles away. When I got to her town I bottled it and had to walk to a town near by called Stockport, another 3 miles away, I then walked back to my aunties realising it was freazing cold and I had no money. I was missing for 14 hours in total. I was 14 at the time.

Who's 'Tigtig'? This thread is for research purposes only, it would help if you refrained from making a mockery out of it. Running away is a very serious problem: one in seven kids between the ages of 10 and 18 will run away and many are not prepared for the harsh reality of leaving home and surviving on their own.

1) NO
2) No
3) No
4) I'd take a big bag full of sweets and some old bread to feed the ducks with, obviously these would only suffice in the short term but I'm sure id be able to find someone who'd let me stay with them in exchange for some sweets...

If you're over 16, you can't really run away, can you? That's called leaving a house as an adult.

A 43 year old can't run away from home.

He can if he has the mental age of a teenager!

I should have known a few members on this forum haven’t yet grown up. Very discouraging to say the least. The reality is at least 5,000 runaway and homeless kids die from assault, illness, or suicide every year. What is seen as a temporary escape becomes a frightening reality, often worse than the situation you've run away from. I want to know - if you ever thought of running away - what would you take with you, what are your plans of survuval, are you thinking straight enough. I need enough data to finish my project. Thanks amazingtrade, zazy and everdawn for your help.

Running away can apply to most ages I think, because the point is your leaving a place/life and have no intention of returning. Your leaving everything not settled and people worrying and not knowing your wherabouts etc
