    I met a homeless "kid" about six years ago I remember ... his father died at the age of five or six and his mother was a crack/heroin addict ... he was on the street because there was nobody he could go to.
      I let him live with me for a while, bailed him out of jail, talked to him as much as I could and I am proud to say he now has a kid, waiting a second. He's a great father (considering he never had one for long), he works, lives with his girlfriend, he no longer gets into fights or any sort of trouble. He began reading the Qur-an and as much as I dislike religions I still think it is better than running "wild" on the street.
      I am glad he straightened-out.

    While researching another subject about homeless vets, I found that the young people are #2 in numbers.  Most of them said it was because they had no idea of what to do after high school or never finished high school, and their parents, accusing them of being lazy, or simply told them once they were 18 out they go.  They had no skills or education or knowledge of what to do or how to get a job, and most I found had been latchkey kids

    young people are usually running from something when they leave home, often violence or sexual abuse.  They frequently feel it is dangerous for them to remain home, and when they decide they have to leave, it is very difficult to go back.  Frequently parents feel as if the child is "admitting they were wrong" by coming back home, when the problem is not with the child, but with how the child relates to them.

    It is an extremely complex issue, and it is one that affects as many as three million teens in America.  When I was a teenager, my best friend left home at the age of 14.  He  was intelligent and powerful and these were advantages to his survival on the streets, but he was still a teenager.  He tried to return home but could never stay, the problems were too great.
