honestly what parents should look at rather than saying oh my kid ranaway their so hirrible is hmm what did i do that might have made them run away. people need space even kids, i would understand if it was 10 to 13 year old but past that age it really isnt that big of a deal honestly, if they are old enough to make the choice to run away than they are old enough to be responsible for themselves. im am 17and i have 10 months until turn 18 and my mom keeps trying to kick me out but every time i leave she threatens to call the cops on me, and so i took it upon myself to search the law and when i found out its not illegal the first person i told was my mom. if a person under 18 is put in a situation where they do not feel safe or comfortable in their own home they should have the right to leave. especially when the part tells them what a horrible person they are and everything that they have done wrong in their life is your fault.

can't dhs put him into foster care? it would have to be an improvement. I know nobody want's to go into foster care, but it's better than couch surfing- plus, if he hates it he can always run away again.

Ah, ahem, ah,

There is a problem here with people telling the truth. I have no idea who is who, and who is truth "challenged."

Your Mom, is not, and should not, be housing, feeding, and supporting your boyfriend. Period. Long story why and mostly boring legal stuff. No mater what emotional commitment you may have toward him, an underaged teen has no standing with officials in cases like this; you may offer information, and your opinions as to who, what, and when but until you are a legal adult your options are limited.

Think of it like this, there are adults who's job it is to sort out problems like your boyfriend. This is their job, their paycheck. These people have told their bosses, and their boss's boss they should be paid good money to sort out things like your boyfriend and his parent / stepfather. Just take my word for it, you trying to help is stepping on their turf, and they don't want your help in today's economy with 20 or more people who would like to take over their job and paycheck.

Let the people who are supposed to sort out problems like your boyfriend earn their money. They are paid to sort out people who are telling the truth, and those who are spreading it thick, and dealing with it.

My daughter is 14 and was on probation in MT but went to spend time w her father in ID.. She recently ran away because of severe abuse, she is hiding from both him and her PO..She was sent to her fathers a year and half ago for being completely unruly.. Since then she was mentally, emotionally, and physically abused.. Her Father cut most of our contact and listened to every conversation etc.. I was allowed 2 supervised visits in that time because of his bizzare control and manipulation..
My question is, I have full custody of her in the state of MT, so if I moved out of the state and she just showed up on my doorstep, would they drag her back to face Prob Violations..? I feel that she would not be heard fairly by any of the judges in our town and certainly not by her PO..
I mean really, she has been going to runaway shelters etc.. If I went to where she is and called and said I found her and that I was keeping her what could they do..? its not kidnapping, its not aiding and abedding...

You guys need to do two things. First, get an Attorney. And second, although it is an old post, and hopefully these posters have grown up a little, learn what capitalization, spell checking, and punctuation are about. When you write like a child, you will be treated like a child.

What if you ran away to a friends house but continue going to to your school, Can your parents contact the school to see if your still attending? And can the police come get your from school to bring you back to your parents?
