Adolescents running away from difficult situations will be associated with certain antecedent socialization practices (151).


Running away by boys was significantly predicted by infant and mother sleeping apart (r = 0.42), childhood inclusion in adult activities (r = 0.49), inculcation of responsibility (r = 0.40), and inculcation of industry (r = 0.38). Running away by girls was predicted only by infant and mother sleeping apart (r = 0.54).
