What do you think is happening? I don't have any idea why teenagers ran away from home. Is it they need freedom? Or is it because they hate their parent?

Many teenagers think life will be better away from home with no parental control. They move out only to find it's difficult. Some come back home and others can end up on the streets, homeless. Could also be an issue without outside influences or friends. Personally, I stayed home until I got married. It was easier, cheaper and I got along fine with my parents. After getting married and having children, I understand why parents have rules.

they runaway because almost all parents didn't allow him/her to go out anytime without their approval...when their request denied, the only thing they can do is to run away..

I never experienced that during my teenage years to run away from home..but I have a lot of friends who did that its becasue they are not happy with their family because their parents are quarelling or they dont have a happy family life they look into another comfort zone so they ran away..another friend of mine ran away because they need freedom because their parents are so strict and not reasonable not all and its part of a growing up maybe that they seek their identity and set of belonginess too..

In society I think that teenagers have always ran away...It is not anything new. They think it will be better if they get away from their parents, from their responsibilities. They run from their problems... usually only to create more!

It depends on the culture of the people and the way children are brought up in the family. It could be due to lack of love, care and attention which most parents find it difficult to express before the children. May be it could be impact of TV shows an the minds of children. It could be due to societal behaviour towards the children or in a big way, the method with which the teachers teach the lessors at school. What was supposed to be in 1950's in western countries about the values of individuals including children, the mannerisms, the behavour, the involvement in the family, love and affection towards the family members all have its bearing on the behaviour of the child/ In India, the family bondage is so good, heardly the young people desert the parents, they do not run away. It is some parents who want to put their children in some place to work and earn money for meeting extra expenses.
