    Hi I'm 12 years old and I really want to run away. The Main reasons are that my dad has sexually abused my family and there has been a big court thing and he did not go to jail. I'm having a lot of trouble in school and might be getting expelled. Also me and my mom have been getting into many fights lately. A year ago I went to a hospital for attempting suicide and I don't want those feelings to come back but I can feel them slowly coming back because of everything that's going on.

    Hey thank you for posting!
    It seems like you have been in a tough situation for a while, and feel oppressed at home. Being unable to express yourself at home on top of feeling depressed is something that shouldn’t happen. Your family should help you grow and succeed as you said.
    Unfortunately we are based in the United States alone so we don’t have any resources for your situation in our database. However there is the child helpline International which is at +31-20-528-9625 which may be able to help.
    Hopefully that number is helpful and you can get the support that you need. Good Luck!

    Hello, I'm 16 and I'm from Italy.
    I have similar issues as the main (or first post mentioned)
    I'm the third daughter of a family of 8 people, my parents are people who actually care for their social appearance a lot and by that everyone who knows them, knows them as fantastic parents who are a lot nice. I'd say the same if I wasn't abused everyday by them (especially my mom) and the rest of the big side of the family. Everyday I think in a detailed version on how I want to kill myself, I also harmed myself differently to see if they would notice but they rather called me a failure. Yesterday my mom prayed that I would leave the house as she is tired of seeing myself and to mess myself up while my sister today wished me a painful death such as burning alive. Unfortunately I don't have anyone to confide with in here since they would believe it's mostly my fault other than the fact that depression and suicide isn't taken seriously here. I'm scared of contacting an organization and being taken back by what I have to call family. Please help me.

    Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. As you are over the age of 21, you are considered an adult in all 50 states and have the right to leave home and live wherever you want. If you need help figuring out how to approach moving out, we would be happy to talk with you about how to get started doing that. Unfortunately, most of our resources are tailored towards youth up to age 21, but we would have no problem looking to see if there might be anything useful to you in our database. If you are interested in having that conversation, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 or chat us at 1800runaway.org.

    Take care,
    NRS

    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time right now.
    Having your parents fight all the time can be frustrating and annoying. We are not legal experts but we do have some information on the laws. If you were to leave home without permission your legal guardian does have the right to file a runaway report. If the police do find you they most likely would bring you home.
    Cutting yourself can be dangerous if you would like to talk with someone about this you can consider talking to your school counselor about this. You can also contact NAMI (national alliance on mental illnesses). They can be reached at 1800-950-NAMI.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any more questions or would like to explore options please give us a call. Best of luck!

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension. Running away is a big decision and it can be very stressful to figure out what you want to do.

    It’s important to consider all the possibilities that can occur if you leave home. You will need to plan out how you will cover basic necessities like travel, food, clothing, etc. If you have a place to go in mind, it’s good to see what the expectations of the living arrangement will be like; rules, the amount of time you’re allowed to stay, if you’re expected to contribute financially, etc. Living on your own can also bring about many safety risks. You will need to consider ways that you can protect yourself from physical harm as well as the possibility of sexual and labor exploitation. This can all influence your decision to leave.

    If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

    Stay safe,
    NRS

    Hi. I am 11 years old. I want to run away. I live in the United States. My mom and dad love each other. But whenever my dad go to work, she releases this monster inside of her. Sometimes at night if my dad isn’t home me and my sister are afraid even walk down my mom and dad love each other. But whenever my dad go to work, she releases this monster inside of her. Sometimes at night if my dad isn’t home we are afraid to even steap out of our room. I have been planing to run away for years. I just don’t know if I should. I have been saving up money, for about a year. So, should I run away? I don’t know.
