You can try to be good to your 16 year old son or daughter. Love your child and make your home a loving home free from abuse, drugs and such.

You need to find out why the teenager is running away from home. Something is causing them to take the drastic step of leaving. Is here abuse at home? Is there abuse at school? Does the teenager feel things are hopeless where they are? Until you get answers on these questions you cannot solve the problem.
