      Hi there,
      Thanks for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline, we appreciate you telling us a little bit about what is going on. It sounds like you are going through a tough situation right now at home and we are here to listen. You deserve to be cared for and your parents are responsible to do that. If you are under the age of 18, it is illegal for them to kick you out and you have the right to report it to the police or to Child Help 1-800-422-4453.
      You talked about running away. We aren’t legal experts, but we have general knowledge about running away. In most states, running away isn’t illegal, but what is called a status offense. You can’t get arrested for it but it will mostly likely go on your record until you are 18. The police will only know if you have runaway if your parents/guardians file a police report. We can’t say for sure how the police will respond, but we hear a lot that police will take potential places you might be and will actively search for you. If they come across you, the most likely will return you home to your parents. Sometimes we hear that if you are staying with someone who knows you are a runaway and are not actively trying to return you or finding shelter for you, your guardians can press charges against the people who are housing you, with something that is called harboring. One of our main goals is to make sure you are safe, so you ever seriously decide to run away and need shelter, resources, or a safe place to go you can find safe locations at nationalsafeplace.org or reach out to us directly and we can find local resources in your area.
      We are here for you and will support you in any way that we can. Please feel free to call into us directly as we can talk further about your situation and find resources that are best for you in your area. Stay strong and you are not alone in this! Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY we are open 24/7.
      We hope this response was helpful! We'd love to hear from you about your experience using our crisis email/forum. Your feedback plays an important role in helping us improve our services to support youth and families. Please click the link below to fill out our survey.

    If by any chance...I had managed to harbor a runaway for a year or so...my family, failing to search for me have taken back all their files to report of my absence...and I have somehow met most of my basic needs...can i look out for another new family? After all, the primary intention of a child running away from home is to find a better life to live, a safer place to stay, and a loving family who would look up to all of his/her needs and concerns...so is there any possible chance of finding a new family because outspokenly, I am very tired of grappling for survival all by myself and I am now looking forward for a bright future where I can pursue my dreams and goals in life. To achieve these big aims, which are very important in my thought, I cannot work on them alone. I was unable to educate myself and continue school because I wasn't completely uphold in my financial status and I needed a person to fill in the spot of a "guardian of the child", to pay the fees etc.(whatever you have to do admit a child into a school). I had been struggling on the streets in search for trusted people (now that I find it even harder as #1 I cannot communicate nor socially be appropriate with people being an autistic #2 I'm scared that I might be discovered by the cops #3 In fear of encountering into dangerous dudes...and so on). I'm just inclined to a single illumination of finding new parents and to be raised like a normal child and like nothing such as whatever I'm going through right now has ever happened. I am stuck up in a much more worse condition than ever before. I do not originally live in the US- but I am planning to move here as it is a remote place from my parents' reach and I have found a possible route to come here (I suppose?)... I could go for Australia as I have a few relatives out there but then it would avail my parents a chance to find me. I have been successful all this while avoiding myself into my parent's hands and it has worked and I want to it to persist. I do not want any kind of advice regarding going back to them...it's another thing.
    Please help me. I'm pretty much aware that you guys are located in the US and cannot help me to a good extent, but could you guys help me with better resources, if possible? I tried those that you have mentioned for others but couldn't find them as helpful, friendly and confidentially-promising as this site. I cannot verbally speak to a person, as I have specified earlier- I am an autistic, so a chat-like thing would surely work. Thank you. I wish to write more, but then I think this is enough for now.

    I am 21 yr old girl from jamshedpur. I was don't wanna leave with my respected family. My father didn't have any responsibility towards us. My life is hell because of him. First wen I and my younger wer young my father use to quit his job several of times because of his drinking and abusing habbit. Same he repeats at home with us. He use to badly abuse and beat my mom, brother and me. Because my father carelessness and nature of quiting job we suffered from highly financial crises. My father always use to drink and beat us. We were really scared of him, but when his hangover gets over he use to manipulate my mom through his love and that's the reason why my mom never divorced him or filed complaint against him. My father is double faces personality. No one can find out that he is that bad with us because he behaves in a pleasant manner with everyone. I was always a good student but because of my father's bad behavior I never studied at my home. All I have gained knowledge is from my school and tution. Where i wished to study and become an robotics Engineer , to support my family I started working as a sales girl at shop. That time even my father drank day n night and use to spoil our days. Then he suffered from some lever problem. All my earning was spent on his medicines. I had no savings. Then because of that job I wasn't able to fill up my graduation admission form and date exceeded. I had to suffer a year gap. Then my father started his job somewhere I left my job to complete my studies but after my graduation frst year he left his job again. We were left with nothing. No savings. We use to beg in front of our relatives. I was looking for and fortunately I got job. Better than previous one. I was the only earning person in my family. Again time arrived for graduation part 2 admission and because of financial issues I was not able to collect 2thousand rs for admission. Again last date of admission passed away. I kept doing my duties and my didn't took admission. Graduation was very much important for me. But all because of my family I won't be able to complete it. I just want to go away.. I m fed up of my situation.

          Hi there,

          Thank you for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. We understand that it takes a lot of courage to ask for help and we want you to know that you deserve to feel safe and happy in your home. One thing you can do would be to report the abuse. We can’t be 100% sure what the outcome will be if your local CPS decides to open a case based on what you share. Sometimes CPS decides to remove minors from the home and other times they offer services such as family counseling or mediation instead. The only way to know the outcome might be to reach out to them directly and if you’re ready to do that we are here to help you through that process. Reaching out to Child Help USA at (1-800-422-4453) or www.childhelp.org may help to get a better understanding of what may happen before and after a report is made.

          It also sounds like you want to runaway. Having a plan about where you would go and how you would take care of yourself is important. Unfortunately, due to your age, a lot of youth shelters will not accept you without parental consent. You may want to consider asking your mom if you could stay with another family member or close friend. As you know, if you leave home without permission your mom has the right to file a runaway report. With a runaway report, if the police finds you they will continue to return you home. If you decide to leave home, you could visit the National Safe place (nationsafeplace.org) the website would provide you with local safe places to go so that you are not on the streets.

          In regards to the bullying, do you have anyone at school like a counselor or a trusted adult that you can talk to that can advocate for you? If not, and if you are looking for an online community to help with bullying, you can reach out to www.stopbullying.gov or www.Netsmartz.org for support.

          Don't hesitate to give us a call if you want more resources or want help walking through anything listed above.

          Stay safe,

              Thank you for reaching out to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand that it takes courage to seek help. We are very sorry to hear about your problems at home. You mentioned that your parents hit you, abuse is never okay and you don't deserve to be treated that way. You have the right to report the abuse. Child Help (1-800-422-4453) is a great resource to explore your options and get information on how to transfer custody. You could try asking your parents if they would allow you to stay with another family member. Another option that you have is contacting Child Protective Services. You may also want to consider looking into emancipation laws for your state. You stated that you are thinking about running away. If you decide to runaway your parents have the right to file a runaway report. With a runaway report, if the police find you they may return you home. We are not legal experts so we cannot say for sure whether you can go to South Korea without your parents permission. Some things to consider would be how you stay safe and where would you live. We hope that this information is helpful, please feel free to contact us directly via our 24 hour crisis hotline (1-800-786-2929), email, or live chat.

              Hello! Thank you for reaching out to us today. It takes a lot of courage to ask for help and we really appreciate the strength it took to contact us.
              It sounds like you are having a tough time finding a job, which can be a really frustrating search. A lot of times, little things like workshopping your resume or developing your interview skills can help your chances getting a job. Sometimes schools or local resources like a library offer resources that can help you to work on these skills.
              It seems like there is a lot of pressure put on you at home. That can be really tough to go through, so it’s understandable that you don’t like being there. There are a lot of things to consider before you leave home like where you would go, how you would get there, and what you would do to take care of yourself.
              It sounds like you are frustrated and still might have a lot of questions. If you want to discuss your situation and your options in more detail, please feel free to call us at 1-800-786-2929. We are confidential, toll free and available 24/7.
              I’d like to thank you again for reaching out again! Good luck!

In public im an angel but home alone im a ********** and a trifling mother********er (excuse my language please) i have not tried suicide but if this keeps happening i will eventually please help. I really love my aunt. She treates my right and with respect. She looks out for me, but i wish i could get signed over to her. Is there anyway i can get signed over to my aunt please.

              Hi,

              Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. We're so sorry to hear your parents are treating you like that. No one deserves to feel disrespected or neglected, especially by their family. These thoughts and feelings you're having about suicide can be very scary and overwhelming. If you feel you are in danger of hurting yourself, you may consider calling the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

              You also mentioned that you are being neglected and verbally abused by your parents. If you would like, you may choose to contact Child Help at 1-800-422-4453. They will be able to talk to you about different types of abuse and help you understand some options, such as filing an abuse report.

              It's great that you have a positive relationship with your aunt to help you get through this tough time. While we are not legal experts, we can tell you that your aunt would not be able to gain custody of you without some sort of legal involvement. Custody issues can be tricky, but if this is something you and your aunt feel strongly about, you may choose to seek professional legal guidance.

              We're so glad you decided to reach out to us - it takes courage to reach out and this is a great first step! If you would like to talk to someone about your situation further, we are available 24/7 on our hotline at 1-800-786-2929. We wish you the best!

              Hi there,

              Thanks for reaching out. It definitely sounds like you're in a difficult time trying to navigate your parents' upcoming marriage. Marriage can be very impacting for people, even if they aren't themselves getting married. We would be glad to talk to you about the feelings this engagement has brought up for you, and we also can help you plan for your safety in the event you decide to run away. We also can talk to you about other options besides running away, and we can help you try to talk to your parents, perhaps by a conference call with you and a parent. Just call us at 1-800-786-2929.

              Best,

              Hello there, thanks for reaching out today!

              Sounds like you are going through so much right now. Unfortunately we are based in the United States and do not know what international runaway laws look like. Your might reach out to the UK's Childline: https://www.childline.org.uk/get-support/. You also may want to call 1098, an Indian help line for youth.

              Best of luck to you and we are sorry we are unable to help.
