A: As my colleague has pointed out, that would be crime. Your aunt may get into legal trouble by interfering. If there are problems at home that are making you want to run away, perhaps you should focus on trying to work out those problems. If there is abuse taking place, for example, speak with your guidance counselor at school, who should be able to help you take appropriate action. -Homer P.
