A man gave his son a scolding so the boy decided to run away.
He got some of his clothes, his teddy bear and his piggy bank
and announced, "I'm running away from home!"

The father decided to handle the matter calmly. "What if you
get hungry?" he said.

"Then I'll come home and eat!" the boy said bravely.

"And what if you run out of money?"

"I'll come home and get some!" readily replied the child.

The man then made a final attempt, "What if your clothes get
dirty?"

"Then I'll come home and let Mommy wash them," was the reply.

The man shook his head, "Are you running away from home or
are you going off to college?"

...children...

I once told my mom I was running away from home for a day (basically leave before they get up and come home after they go to bed) to see what it's like. She just said "okay" and went back to sleep...And I came back later that afternoon because I was getting tired and bored to be playing by myself.
