    Daughter leaving home

    My daughter had an argument with the wife tonight and decided to leave home.
    She packed her bag and put her coat on, but when it came to it she couldn't go through the door.

    Maybe next year when she's 6 she'll be able to reach the door latch

    Aww that's quite cute. I remember doing that when I was about the same age and like your daughter also didn't make it through the door... and I'm STILL here years and years later

    when i was about 8 or 9 i also pulled the same stunt, packed my school satchel and walked out of the door, which was being held open for me by my mum, 5 minutes later i was back with the words " its too cold out today so i'll be going tomorrow" .

    we had laughs over that for many years.

    Kids are great, my 8 year old walked out on his mum last week. Went for a walk around the park before returning home.

    Anyone ever seent aht comedy sketch with the kid saying he's leaving home, packs his bags, tells his parents it's time for him to move on.

    They stand at the gate as he toddles off up the road, and after a while stops. and starts returning.

    The parents look lovingly at each other as he walks back, this prous parent moment.

    As he gets to them he turns into the house and as he passes them he says "I forgot my fucking passport"

    When I was 5 I set out on my first round the world tour. In my little suitcase I packed all the provisions for the trip, vis : teddy, half a tube of smarties and a banana. About 70 yards from the front door I negotiated my first curve in the road and home dropped from view. Once around the corner a whole new vista appeared that I had never seen before. The world was bigger than I thought. I returned home and told my amused and incredulous dad of what I have discovered whilst he ate my banana.

    I ran away up to the local golf course where we had a den. My mate Duncan and I. He brought some savoury vinegar crisps. They were gone just after arrival. I was determined to see this out, but Duncan went home for his dinner at 5 and I got lonely so I went home as well. Nobody in my house ever knew I'd run away.

    In those days, we had so much freedom, We'd ride our bikes for miles and miles, our parents never knew where we were and we'd be out from 9am til lunch and then from 1pm til tea. I'd never give my kids that sort of freedom now, but it actually worries now they'll have been too protected when they hit the streets of London in the future.

    I talked my younger sister (5YO) into running away when I was 7. Well planned it was. Built a sled with some provisions including a bow and arrow to hunt game.
    Unfortunately Mum caught us getting through the fence about 100 yards from the house. I think the dog was coming too until then.

    Did the same thing. But we lived in a closed camp "Abqaiq" Saudi Arabia. Fenced all the way around and a huge guard gate. My folks called everybody in Abqaiq and asked them to come out and wave goodbye to me. They did and I waved back on my way to freedom. I was feeling pretty cool until I got to the gate.

    I was a about six, the only problem was we had a gravel driveway. So I practiced for ages trying to walk on it without making a noise. Got bored so just stayed put.

    My son cracked the shits with Grandma the other week and didnt talk to her for three days and went and slept at the big house with Grandpa. Really strange a kid holding a grudge for so long.
    Must get it from his mother

    I lived with my grandparents, decided it was time to leave home and have an adventure at 6 yrs, told my grandfather i planned to vist Africa, he decided to come with me. After about 40 mins on the road he reminded me that grandma was blind and there was no one to make her tea, we got the bus home, quickly!
