“So I’m 16, my mom keeps locking me out and has threatened to report me a runaway if I leave home without her permission. Is it legal for me to leave home for the day to see my boyfriend or friend? Even without her consent? Also.. If I were to run away how long would the cops look for me? I want to be free from my mom and I would love to live elsewhere while working on my emancipation. On top of that my mom is extremely emotionally and verbally abusive. I’m done with high school and I have my own job but I’m worried about the cops making me go back. I need answers please…”
