Why do teens run away?

Answer

Some teenagers run away in an attempted showdown with parental authority, as a very dramatic way of saying 'You can't tell me what to do!' Some are expressing their feeling of alienation and believe that they will find more sympathetic companions somewhere else. It can be anything from a cry for more attention to an expression of their belief that they are ready and able to look after themselves.
