    In most cases, running away is a part of being a kid. But in some, a serious warning of a problem at home. I hope this boy will be ok and will stay home from now on.

    I hid in the house because I didn’t get to go to the fair for a second time. After searching for awhile around the immediate area my mother walked down to the fair (small town) looking for me. In the meantime my uncle found me , gave me a whipping and locked me in the potato cellar until my mother returned. Never threatened to run away again …

    So Glad he was found safe. I, once, ran away from home. I was eight years old. I ran out the door, crawled underneath the house, we lived in a shotgun house back then in the fifties, and listened to my mother singing and dancing to some music on the radio. I laughed about that to this day.
