Dear Carol

Dear Carol: My sister ran away. What should I do?

 
 
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,

This is a serious situation. Rather than keep silent, reveal your sister’s whereabouts to a parent, or talk to a school counselor, psychologist, clergyperson, relative or some trusted adult who can help. I realize you don’t want to tattle on your sister, but if she’s in danger, speaking up can make a difference—or even save her life.
