  • Hey people! I'm almost 15, and I really hate my parents. They act all good and caring but they really think I'm worthless, an obstacle. I wanna pursue a career in gaming. Gaming makes me feel complete, it gives me happiness, satisfaction. They always stop me. They say I can't do it, they always speak out for the things they have done for me, the things i bought with THEIR money, staying at THEIR house, and using THEIR things. My mom curses me, swears at me a lot, hits me sometimes. I fight back, I try to defend myself, and then she acts as if I hit her. She and my father have serious anger issues. I really wanna leave home and start living independently. Btw, I live in India, so you might not be much help.But it feels good to let out things. Thanks for letting me talk!
    I just need some advice on how to run away from home, how to survive alone, independently.

      Hello,

      Thank you for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline today. We are so sorry to hear that you are in such a frightening and difficult situation. You truly do not deserve to be abused in any way; you deserve to feel safe and supported in your own home.

      You don’t say if you have ever considered reporting this abuse to child protective services but, if you are interested in doing this, there are several ways you can go about is. First, you can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929), and we can help you file an abuse report. You can also contact the national child abuse reporting hotline, Childhelp at 1-800-422-4453, and they can assist you as well. Finally, you can talk with a trusted adult who might be able to help advocate for you. If you choose to talk with a teacher or medical professional, they are mandated reporters and have a lot of experience in these situations.

      Another thing to remember is that you can always call 911 if you feel threatened or unsafe.

      If you don’t have access to a phone, you can contact us through the digital chat feature on our website, www.1800RUNAWAY.org. We are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week. We are here to listen and to help. We have a large database of resources around the country, and we will work with you to find needed services. We can also talk about strategies to help you keep yourself safe…we genuinely care about your safety.

      Please call or chat…we hope to hear from you soon.

      Take care,
      NRS

  • Hi. I'm 13 and wanna run away from home. My parents don't let me have anything and the question which always harrases me is, " What are you doing?". I can't do anything on my own. They always asks me whenever I do anything. Please help me. I cannot stand it anymore.

      Hi there,

      Thank you for reaching out, it sounds like things have been tough at home. We're sorry you have had to deal with abuse from your mom for some time, it is understandable for you to want to leave the situation. We want to help as best we can, but a majority of our resources are based in the United States alone. A great resource to try out is Child Help International https://www.childhelplineinternational.org/ They are helpful with explaining your rights and options across the globe. Please reach out to local authorities if you feel you may be in any immediate danger.

      Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
      If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon. Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).
      We hope to hear from you soon.


      Stay safe,

  • Hey,

    My situation isn't as grave as some of the others here, but I feel insanely pressurized from school and home, and feel like my parents misunderstand me and don't support me the way I need them to. All I want is to be independent - where I am not constantly given deadlines and can face the repercussions of my own mistakes. I have proven in the past my ability to take something up and exceed expectations. All I want is a chance. Leave me alone and I will produce results. But each time they knock on my door (and I mean several times a day) asking for an update on work, I just feel burnt out. Give me a break. I want to run away to my grandparents and just figure my own life out. I'm 17 and in India, but at this point, I just want to start working and make a living for myself. I don't want to follow their orders anymore. When they think I'm showing attitude, they take my computer away. I'm showing attitude because you don't respect the one request I have - to trust me to complete my work because this is for my own future.

          Hi there,
          Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems like you're considering leaving home and want to know about the potential consequences.
          To be frank, if you are under 18 leaving home without parental permission can be tricky. While running away is not illegal, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway which means that if you are caught you will have to return home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. Further, if you have run away before, have outstanding warrants, or are on probation, some states have laws in place that can hold legal implications if you repeatedly leave home. However, we are not legal experts and this depends on your state.
          We are here as support through this challenging time and we can best help by having a conversation with you either by phone on our hotline or chatting us through our website. We truly hope to hear from you soon so that we can listen and help.

      • I guess this will be a long story for me. I'm currently 18 and living in Nebraska but I don't feel comfortable at home anymore. Me and my parents fight a lot, especially my mom because we're both mentally ill. She and I are bipolar, but I also have severe PTSD, anxiety, and autism. Its constant battles at home and I always feel really depressed as soon as I get home from school or work. I dont really have a backup home to go to either. I'm sick of being discriminated for being FTM at home as well. I know my mental health will improve as soon as I leave but I'm scared my parents will try to keep me home if I try to leave. I've self harmed in the past because of them and have had so many thoughts of suicide and im just completely lost at this point. I need to get out...bad...

          Thank you for reaching out to NRS,
          We are sorry to hear you are going through so much and your family is not supportive. We would be more than happy to help answer some questions you had. Since you are 18 you are more than likely considered a legal adult which means that you can move out if you want to and you won’t be considered a runaway. As a legal adult, you have a right to make your own decisions about where you live. As for your parents, they cannot stop you in any way. If you feel as though they might do something you can actually call the cops and they would be able to assist you in moving out in a safe manner.
          We can help you make a plan for how to deal with your situation and help you find resources to land on your feet. Having a plan for where you will live and how you will survive once you move out can be very helpful. Moving can be a huge step, and you don’t have to be alone. Some steps you can take towards independence might be to find employment if you don’t have an income, or to save up money for moving expenses. It can also be helpful to research rents in your area, find a roommate, or make a budget. Another thing you might want to consider is what kinds of things you depend on your parents for currently such as tuition expenses for school, or health insurance, and whether they would continue to provide those things after you leave. There may be social service agencies in your area that can help meet some of these needs, such as Transitional Living Programs, a kind of shelter where young adults can live and get services to help them transition to independent living. We are here to listen and help however we can.

          If you would like to talk more in detail please chat soon through our website www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button) if you are unable to call in. We unfortunately cannot give advice as we are non-directive. You know your situation best.

          We hope to hear from you soon.

          Be safe,

          NRS
