    Re: I want to run away

    Hello there,

    Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you have been going through a lot for a long time now at home, and you want to run away. We are sorry to hear you are going through this and we are here for you.

    We are not legal experts, but we want to give you a general sense of what it might look like if you run away. Running away is not illegal, rather it is a status offense due to your age. 18 is usually the legal age when you can leave home without permission from your parents. The legal age and runaway policies can change from state to state and city to city. Typically if your parents file a runaway report and you encounter the police, they will take you back to your parents. If you do run away to someone else’s house, they could possibly be charged with harboring a runaway.

    We strongly encourage you to call in or live chat with us if you want to talk about your situation more and brainstorm your options. We can also provide you with local shelter or counseling resources if you would like.

    Best wishes,

    NRS
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.

          I am studying Engineering 2nd year. I want to leave this life behind as I am tired of running around to gain marks! I want to run away because my parents won't agree to leave my studies. Please help me out and guide me to lead an independent life.

            Hello and thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline (NRS). It sounds like you and your parents have different expectations for your studies. You seem to be feeling unhappy and no longer wanting to focus on engineering. That can be understandable. We, however, are unable to offer direct advice or guidance. We may be able to locate some agencies in your area that can better help with your long-term goals of independent living. If you would like to talk more about your situation and wanted to look into some resources, please consider calling our crisis line or chatting with us. Our chat and phone line information can be found at the bottom of this post.

            We are here to listen and explore options with you and hope to hear from you soon.

            We wish you well,

                Hello, NRS here. Thanks for reaching out.

                First of all, you should know that you do not deserve to be treated this way, and especially not by your family.

                Second, you should know that our number is always open and confidential - you can reach us a 1-800-786-2929, and a NRS helper can help talk you through your situation. This is probably the best way for us to understand your situation and how to best help you right away.

                Third, have you considered contacting the Child Help USA Hotline at 1-800-422-4453? They might be able to help you with the abuse you are facing at home with your parents. Have you also talked with anyone at school you trust, such as a teacher? Your teachers are adults who could help step in and help you with what is going on at home.

                      I'm 17 years old & I get constant nagging from my mom leading to the point where I just want to leave. One day I'd be doing homework & she'd come into my room & start telling me things on how I'm lazy & don't do anything around the house. She'll constantly compare me to my older brother who's away at university. Then another day she'll yell at me for having bad grades & continue to nag on how I'm lazy & getting fat. It just doesn't make sense, she'll yell at me for doing homework & not helping with house things, then she'll come around & yell at me for having bad grades & being stupid. It doesnt make sense. I have an older brother who suffers from mild depression & anxiety. He says most of it comes from my mother because she acted the same way to him when he was living at home. I just feel like I'll end up the same. I start to doubt myself a lot & feel really stressed about school. I don't know what to do. I feel like the only person I can talk to about this is my brother. How should I handle these situations?

                        Hello,

                        Thank you for reaching out to us. We are here to help. It seems that you are in an unpleasant situation. It is understandable that you feel stressed out and you want to leave home because of the circumstances with your mom.
                        It seems that you feel mistreated by your mom. Evidently you did not do anything wrong. This might be a pattern in her behavior, since your brother experienced the same with her. If you do decide to runaway, you should know that in most states running away is not against the law, but it is consider a status offense. That means that it is illegal because you are a minor, just like an underage smoking or drinking. If you leave home without permission or stay away longer than you are supposed to, your parents can file you as a runaway in the local Police Department. Also, if you are staying at a friend’s house or somewhere your parents did not give you permission to be, they can face possibly legal consequences.

                        Another option would be an emancipation. Which is a legal proclamation of independence. Basically, you have to prove to the court that you can support and take care of yourself. However, not every state has the emancipation proclamation option for minors. In addition, a possible solution could be an alternative living arrangement. This is a legal procedure. The alternative living arrangement involves placing you with responsible family member (other than a parent or primary caregiver) or close adult family friend. For this one, since Child Protective Services are not involved in your situation, your mother must willingly agree to do it.

                        This is just a basic information explaining your options, if you decide to leave home. However, we are not legal experts and we cannot be certain. If you want to talk more in depth about your circumstances please feel free to call us on 1-800-786-2929, or chat with us on our website. We can provide you with many resources, which could be helpful for you.

                        Again, we are really glad that you reached out to us. It takes a lot to ask for help and you are trying to figure out your options which is really good to see. If you would like to talk further about your situation, please do not hesitate to call or chat with us. We are here to listen, here to help.
