It's time you were honest with yourself and figured out why your daughter keeps running away. Kids don't run away for no reason. Until you fix what is wrong in your own life your daughter will continue to run away no matter how young she is and there is nothing you can do about it. The police can bring her back 50 times, but she'll just run away. Time to put on your thinking cap, search your soul and sit down and ask your daughter why she feels she needs to run away. No matter how silly her reasons are, treat her like an adult and try to understand when you were that age and make an effort to understand her feelings as well.

Then type in: What is the legal age of children to leave their parent's home in South Carolina?"

You should find lots of help on your State laws there.

Good luck Marcy

  • The age of majority in SC is 18. Therefore, anyone under 18 is a minor. If a minor leaves home without parental consent (and without the intent to return), then they are a runaway. SC considers running away from home to be a "status offense," which means it is a clear violation of criminal juvenile law.

If a parent tells a child to get out of their house can that parent then call the child in as a runaway?

Well, they can but they would be lying. The parent is kicking them out of the house, the child is not running away; sooner or later the police (if the parent did call the child in as a runaway) would probably figure out the child did not runaway and the child was kicked out. If the parents kicked them out, then why would they call the child in as a missing if they didn't want them?
