No matter how brave you are, sneaking out is usually a bad idea, as these girls' stories reveal.

"It's all part of growing up," says Bev*, 21, about sneaking out. Indeed, teens love to go out without parental consent, expecting the plan to go off without a hitch. Sure, they feel anxious about getting caught, but they seldom realize that getting caught should actually be the least of their worries.

Close Encounters

Lia*, 21, snuck out a lot in sixth grade, when she was just 12. Her friends' parents allowed them to go out often, and since her folks were stricter, she'd go behind their backs to gallivant with her buddies.

"I was very bold and fearless then, even though I didn't really know what I was doing," Lia recalls. "I guess it was an adrenaline rush."

Lia would commute in cities she wasn't familiar with, often just guessing how to get from point A to point B. She usually ended up taking cabs by herself. "One time, I literally begged a taxi driver to lower the fare because I realized I was short on cash. Another time, I fell asleep on a long cab ride."

Her parents never caught on. It was only later that Lia realized how much she had taken her safety for granted. "I could have gotten lost, with no way to contact anyone, since cell phones weren't common then. I didn't realize it at the time, but I was constantly endangering myself."
