Most children threaten at times to run away from home. This is the only thing that keeps some parents going. Phyllis Diller
My kids are a bit young for the running away from home bit. But I clearly remember ‘running away’ at least once. I got as far as the car in the driveway. I didn’t last very long out there either. It was pretty damn cold.
We are raising our children in a much warmer climate than the one I grew up in. I wonder how long they’ll ‘run away’ for. Really cold weather is kind of like an invisible fence. I may have to keep a closer eye on them than my own parents needed to do with me.
