I don't want to live at home anymore, after my mom found out I lost my innocence; she has been keeping me locked in our house. Meaning I'm not allowed to see my friends or my boyfriend. She has done this before, only because she doesn't like my friends and thinks they are the reason I am so rebelious. I want to move out but she has threatened to call me in as a runaway. I just want to know if I can move out and into a friends house and if they will get in trouble for harboring a so called "runaway".I know about emancipation, but I am almost 18 and I've heard that it takes a while to become emancipated. Are there any other options? I really dont want to wait until I'm 18 to move out.
