      Yikes! I hope you’re not considering it. Once I had a big fight with my mum about sleeping over at someone’s house. I went to sit at the end of the road and was so angry. But then I realised that she didn’t want me to be unhappy, and wasn’t doing it to make me sad- she was doing it because she loved me and she wanted to see me. I often get angry with members of my family, and then just think about how much they have helped and supported me through every part of my life. I think that a happy home is where everyone looks after each other- so I try to do that every day!

      First of all – don’t do it! When I was younger and I fell out with my parents I would threaten to leave – and even did a couple of times, but never for more than maybe an hour or so. It would start raining, and I’d get hungry, and then I’d realise bringing all my Beano comics with me was probably a bad move… So to answer your question – yes, but it was a bad decision and I never left for long!

      So be nice to your parents – being an adult sucks sometimes – trust me!
