What kid hasn't wanted to make their parents feel sorry for treating him badly?
And how better to accomplish this than to run away? Here's a guide showing how, from what to pack (gum--then you won't have to brush your teeth) to how to survive (don't think about your cozy bed).

And like Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, it's also a journey inside a creative kid's imagination: that special place where parents aren't allowed without permission.

And suddenly sleeping in the park doesn’t sound that exciting. I mean, what if there really was a bear? Maybe you’ll give your folks one last chance—even though they don’t deserve it. Once you’re home, things might not seem as bad as you remembered. You can always collect more candy wrappers, right? But don’t let your family know you feel

But don’t dawdle, because your folks might come looking for you. And you don’t want them to find you. Because they’re the worst family in the world. Here’s where things get tricky. The truth is, they probably won’t come looking. Even if you sit on the sidewalk and wait in broad daylight. So you need to decide. Do you really want to stay at your best
