When emotions swell between teenager and parent, both sides sometimes say and do things they later wish they could take back. Imagine the fear when tempers reach the point where the teen runs away or is kicked out of the house. Where has my child gone, asks the frantic parent. Where will I go, asks the frightened teen. The more than two million teens who have run away or were told to leave due to unresolved family conflict represent a national emergency and a tragedy. It's tragic, since most families actually love each other; their main problem is not knowing how to handle conflict, said Norweeta Milburn, UCLA associate research psychologist and director of UCLA's Project Strive (Support To Reunite, Involve and Value Each Other), a research project targeting teens who leave home and their families.
