She in under age and her parents need to know. If something happened to her, could you live with yourself? That is the question.

Her 17 and you 19doh

If you do help her to run away, with her being under age.. if she crosses the state line and you helped... You could be facing a federal charge and time in prison.

If you know her parents and trust them and they trust you then you have to tell them her intentions!

shes not too young to go it alone but still, at that age, she obviously has issues somewhere and needs some sort of support and security
cheers

What's her reasoning for running away? Is she being abused/neglected or she just doesn't like the rules of home? Does she have mental, emotional or physical issues that she needs to address? Does she not have any friends that she could stay with on a temporary measure? Has she sought out help from a school counselor and community counselor?

You helping her run away is not the answer - you telling her parents may or may not help ....... perhaps some outside professional help is necessary ......... truly its hard to know what may be the best answer when all the facts are not known. You only know what she's telling you - there are always two sides to the story.

Don't get involved other than getting info as to where she is going and
why. Help her to stay home until she is at least 18.

Ok this is the situation Im 19 so her mom thinks i only want one thing in life and I hate that she has that assumption. We do have some feelings for eachother and her Mom I know this for sure ive seen it in person she always puts her down and calls her names in front of me and other friends she says stuff like youll get no where in life your F****** stupid you Whore stuff like that and I dont know why she does that she doesnt have a BF she calls me and talks to me shes lookin for that support emotionally and well we both have strong feelings for one and other so its hard to make a decision when my judgement is clouded by personal feelings

I knew it. idea



Ask your friend to report this to the police, immediately, they'll know best, what steps to take with her past and fear of the situation. Go with her!

Her mother must be one diabolical, disgusting, heartless witch.

barf

Some women should not be allowed to have children! What a psychopath! If she was in some remote village in Africa, she'd probably be stoned to death, which wouldn't be unfair at all.

doh frustrated very mad

someting in her life is definitly wrong or out of kilter
but also make sur she is not just emotionaly draining you

if she ran once before she must have a counselor,

whats she running from

if its ab abusive situation then yes help her to get out
but with professional help.

having her face plastered all over the country wont do her any good
