Stories about running away

There is something both exhilarating and scary about reading stories about running away from home for children. On the one hand, it can be exciting to imagine oneself as the character in the story, fleeing from whatever it is they are running from. On the other hand, it can be scary to think about what might happen if one actually ran away.

For many children, the idea of running away is something that they have thought about at one point or another. It can be tempting to pack up one‘s belongings and hit the road, especially if things are not going well at home. In a lot of ways, running away seems like the answer to all of life‘s problems.

However, children need to understand that running away is not a solution to their problems. In fact, it often makes things worse. Children who run away are more likely to end up in dangerous situations, or even hurt or worse.

So, while short stories about running away can be exciting to read, they should also be used as a way to teach children the dangers of actually running away. These running away stories can help children to understand that there are better ways to deal with their problems.
