Teens' Essays on Parent Relationships

A young woman writing.

Ask runaway youth why they left home, and many will say they simply couldn't live with their parents any longer. Understanding that relationships between young people and parents can be complex, Youth Communication has posted several articles by youth about their experiences with their parents. These stories model ways that teens were able to communicate effectively and find compromises to make the relationship work.
