  • You have your entire life ahead of you. No need to run away. Besides, what exactly do you expect would happen if you run away? You would be homeless, likely with very little money, probably nowhere to go. People would be looking for you and your parents would be worried. In my opinion THAT would be wasting your life because there's literally nothing you could do.

  • Just wait, you are almost 18, leave then. My parents are strict, I can't even go to friends' houses, but I don't want to mess things up with my parents so I would not run away. I would just move out on good terms if I was you.

  • Ok where are you going to go, you need a job to pay for things like a roof over your head and food. You will not want to stay on the streets. It's too dangerous for starters. Think about it. Yes life is hard and will always be hard but we survive and become stronger with every hardship we encounter. You won't be 17 forever and your parents are looking out for the 30 yr old you not the teenager right now. Be wise.

  • Don't run away, u'd break ur parents hearts, u just gotta tell them, u wanna travel, and it's gonna happen, but don't threaten on leaving or actually leaving. They'll be so broken worrying everyday about u. My parents are prolly more strict than urs, but if I wanna go somewhere, I tell them, I'm going somewhere with my friends, and I will go no matter what. U know? :)

    • If I say I'm going no matter what I'll get my ass kicked
