There are many reasons why someone might want to run away from home. Here are some ways that you can try.
The first is to just walk out the door and start walking in any direction. This way, you’ll have no idea where you’re going but will likely get somewhere new. Kids who run away this way sometimes call themselves “homeless”.
Another option is hitchhiking. Get on the side of the road with your thumb out and wave at drivers to wave you over. If they agree, keep moving until they’ve dropped you off so that they don’t think you’re getting in their car on purpose.
You can also take public transportation. Find a bus stop or train station and hop on the next bus or train that comes by. If you run out of money, use coins from your pocket to buy your ticket. Keep in mind, though, that this method is very unlikely to get you far since it’s so easy for authorities to track down where you’ve been traveling.
You can also take a plane or a boat. This is another method that’s unlikely to get you far, but it can be fun nonetheless.
If all else fails, call 911 for help! If you’re old enough to have a mobile phone, just call this number and explain your situation. The police can pick you up in no time!
Not only are these methods dangerous and will most likely be unsuccessful, but they could also end up with you being severely injured or even dying. The best way for a runaway to have success is to form a plan first.
Next, you need some supplies. Pack things like food, money, a change of clothes, maps of the area you’re going to run away to, and a bag to put everything in.
Now that you’ve got your plan and supplies set up, it’s time to leave. Make sure that nobody knows what you’re up to before you go by hiding your plans somewhere only you would know it was there. Write a note if no one is around.
Next, take one last look at your home before you go. Give yourself a hug, take a deep breath, and head out the door to start your adventure!
It is illegal to run away from home in most countries.
If an adult runs away they may be considered as a missing person, but if they are under 18 years of age they may be treated as a child missing person.
If you are being abused or have reasons to run away, contact the police or other authorities who can help rather than running away yourself.
So this is how to run away from home.
