    Re: Need Help

    Hi there,
    Thanks so much for feeling that you can come to us for help. It sounds like things are getting pretty stressful at home for you and your family and we are sorry to hear that. We can't tell you whether or not you should leave but we are more than happy to talk with you about what is going on and try to help you make up your own mind on what you feel is best.
    Divorce can be really hard and even harder when you are constantly hearing negative things and feel like no one cares to put in any effort for you. Have you ever been able to express how you feel to your parents? This of course can be really difficult but it also has the potential to help things get better. Do you have anyone else that you feel comfortable talking with about things like friends, other family members, teachers, or counselors? Sometimes reaching out to people just to be able to talk and get another point of view, or just a shoulder to lean on can be of great help.
    If you are thinking of running away, we hope that you will be able to stay safe. Here are some things you can think about:
    •What else can I do to improve my home situation before I leave?
    •What would make me stay at home?
    •How will I survive?
    •Is running away safe?
    •Who can I count on to help me?
    •Am I being realistic?
    •Have I given this enough thought?
    •What are my other options?
    •If I end up in trouble, who will I call?
    •When I return home, what will happen?
