Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare runaway girls and normal girls regarding family cohesion and emotional autonomy.

Method: 35 runaway girls and 35 normal girls filled out the Family Cohesion Scale and Emotional Autonomy Scale. Data were analyzed using discriminant analysis and t-test.

Also, the results of discriminant analysis showed that marital relationship and parent-adolescent relationship are two factors that can discriminate %77 of runaway girls from normal girls.
