Have you ever read the tips on our website and thought, “Well, they forgot to mention a few things!”


Or, maybe you read it and thought, “That’s not relevant to teens anymore – I have lots of ideas that might help in a difficult situation!”


Announcing the National Runaway Safeline’s 2013 Youth and Parent Tips Campaign! If you are a teen, parent or caregiver, or a teacher or youth worker, NRS wants to hear your tips! Once we receive all the tips, they will be reviewed by a panel of experts and the final lists of tips will be featured on our website. All the tips should be submitted by August 25, 2013 and the final tips will be revealed in November.


For more information or to submit a tip, visit the submission page. Plus, you can share this website with your friends, peers and other parents and caregivers. NRS is trying to get a solid list of tips for teens, parents and caregivers, and teachers and youth workers. By submitting your tips, you may be helping a youth in a future crisis situation.

    Hi have a question regarding my son’s girlfriend. They are both 17, she will be 18 in February of 2014. They just recently had a baby and she wants to live at my house with my son because they will have a large living space with plenty of room for them and the baby. She has been fighting with her mother over the living situation and her mother basically told her she is her’s until she is 18. What are consequences if she just leaves and what are her rights. I want them to be happy and help each other with the baby so I support them being together to raise this baby.
