Dear Carol

Should I keep my sister's secret?

My 15-year-old sister ran away. I know where she is, but I'm afraid to tell because I don't want to get in trouble.

Dear Confused,

Some girls rat on siblings to get them in trouble. You'd be speaking up to get her out of trouble. I understand your not wanting to squeal, but think about revealing her whereabouts to a parent, counselor, clergyperson, relative or some other trusted adult. If she is in danger, you could be saving her life. There's a chance that even she will realize this.
