“Every year in Quebec, on average, 5,000 cases of runaway youth are reported to law enforcement. Our experience has shown that one in every three runaways fall victim to sexual exploitation.” said Pina Arcamone, Director General of the Missing Children’s Network. “Exploiters target and prey on the vulnerability of young people and groom them by gaining their trust, showering them with affection and attention and promising a better and more glamourous life.”
Make a difference. Show our youth that their safety is also your priority. Donate to the Missing Children’s Network today. www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/10044

#KEEPTHEMSAFE« Chaque année, en moyenne, au Québec, 5 000 fugues sont rapportées aux forces policières. Notre expérience démontre qu’un fugueur sur trois devient victime d’exploitation sexuelle », déclare Pina Arcamone, directrice générale du Réseau Enfants-Retour. «Les exploiteurs ciblent les jeunes et profitent de leur vulnérabilité pour les préparer, en gagnant leur confiance, en les couvrant d’affection et d’attention, ainsi qu’en leur promettant une vie meilleure et plus excitante. »
Contribuez au changement et montrez à nos jeunes que vous avez leur sécurité à cœur. Faites un don aujourd’hui au Réseau Enfants-Retour. www.canadahelps.org/fr/dn/10044

The mere thought that a child may run away from home is an issue that many parents worry about. Difficulties within the family, bullying (cyberbullying) and negative influences can affect how a teen manages their personal problems. They may consider running away from home as a solution to their problem. Maintaining an open and free from judgement communication space can facilitate conversation with your child. By reminding them that we are available and ready to listen to them, they will feel more comfortable in sharing issues when they emerge. It could be pertinent to prepare a list of resources for your child and post it in a common space in your home. Furthermore, if you ever have any doubts or preoccupations, do not hesitate to seek support and/or resources.

www.missingchildrensnetwork.ngo/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/RER-Teen-Runaway-Guide-EN-web.pdfLa fugue est un phénomène qui inquiète plus d’un parent. Des difficultés familiales, de l’intimidation (cyberintimidation) et des mauvaises influences peuvent mener l’adolescent à une incapacité à faire face à ses problèmes personnels. La fugue pourrait lui apparaître comme une solution. Or, il n’est jamais trop tard pour prévenir et agir! Maintenir un espace de communication ouvert et sans jugement peut favoriser les échanges avec notre enfant. Lui rappeler que nous sommes disponibles et à son écoute fera également en sorte qu’il sera plus à l’aise de se confier lorsqu’un problème surviendra. Il serait pertinent d’ébaucher une liste de ressources pour votre enfant et de la rendre disponible dans un espace commun de la maison. Puis, si vous avez des doutes ou des inquiétudes, n’hésitez pas à demander du soutien auprès des ressources s’adressant aux parents.
