“If your kid has run away, even for an hour or two, you need to read this eBook carefully. Chronic, long-term running away – the kind that ends in prostitution or other dangerous ventures – usually begins with short-term sprints. Learn how to deal with this behavior so that you can help your child break a potentially destructive habit.
At the same time, you must look closely at your kid’s behavior before overreacting. Running away, in some cases, is just a declaration of independence. Moreover, a child who breaks a rule – for example, curfew – might be afraid to come home for a few days. Upsetting as these two types of flight can be to parents, they can often lead to growth and greater strength of character if you handle them properly.”
