Once, when my sister was young (like 6) she "ran away from home" but really just grabbed some toys and snacks and hid in the trunk of my mom's mini van. We didn't know where she was for like 4 hours and my parents freaked out. They took my dad's car to look for her, but then came home and decided to split up and take both cars to look for her. To my mom's surprise, she was in the trunk having a damn tea party.
The moral of the story is, unless your life is total shit, your parents abuse you, etc, if you run away, you're basically acting like a 6 year old girl.
