On Monday, my daughter got home from school for find out Mr 16 had run away from home. He wrote about how he has sought advise from the police and because he is 16 he has legal rights for us not to know where he is. He talks about how he is staying with a mate that we do not know, and how he chose that mate because we done know the family or where they live. He is still communicating with us vain FB messager and will not see us however continues to ask things of us. He has asked for us to bring clothes for him to the school (yes, he is still attending), he has asked to be left alone and he has asked for his money, which he had asked us to put away for him. Mr 16 was a pretty normal kid. This has been very out of the blue. He talks about how he has a case worker and they are looking for a more permanent place for him to live. After speaking to the school who have been great through this, it would seem that for what ever reason he has run away, one one understands. When he was telling us, none of it made sence, there was no logic or reason to it. However, to Mr 16 it was important enough for him to run away. What tips, pointers and advise have helped other either communicate and understand their Teens during these difficult times?
