    RE: My mom treats me so bad please help

    Hi there,

    You are so brave for reaching out to us. Nobody deserves to have their mom treat them this way and we are here to help you find a safe solution. Your mom is wrong to treat you that way. You have the right to a safe and supportive home. So let’s see how we can help you out tonight.

    You mentioned that your mom hits you and calls you names. It sounds like you need a lot of support right now. Is there anyone in your life who you trust who you are able to reach out to? We are also available 24 hours a day on our hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) and can talk through what is going on and come up with some other options.

    Another option that you have is to make an abuse report. Now, there's no guarantee that they would place you with your aunt or dad, but it may be a step to get the support that you deserve. It can be a very scary step to get the police involved; if you give us a call, we would be able to talk through with you any questions you have about this option.

    If you are comfortable doing so, please give our hotline a call or contact us through our chat service (www.1800runaway.org) which is active between 4.30pm and 11.30pm Central Time. If you are in immediate danger, some options include calling the police or going to a friend or family member’s house until you feel safe enough to return.

    We look forward to your call or chat.

    Best of luck to you,

    NRS

        Re: Help.

        Hi there

        Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline! We’re glad you reached out and want to help you in any way we can.
        You’re a very good friend for trying to reach out and help your friend; she’s lucky to have you. We’re so sorry to hear that your friend is unhappy at home because everyone deserves a safe and loving home. Has your friend tried reaching out to anyone at school or a trusted adult about what is going on? We know reaching out to people for help can be intimidating, but there are a lot of people out there that care about her and want her to be safe. It is definitely understandable that she does not want to be put into the system. We cannot say for certain how CPS will respond, but usually CPS looks for placement within the family before going to foster care. We could help her file a report if that is what she decides she wants to do. If not, we would be able to find your friend a shelter for the time being until she decides what she wants to do long term if her main concern is getting out of the house as soon as possible.
        You also mentioned that she is thinking about running away. Again, we aren’t legal experts here, but there are some general things to keep in mind regarding running away. For example, if a minor leaves the house without permission, parents have the right to file a runaway report with the police if they want. Running away is just a status offense, meaning that she wouldn’t get in any serious legal trouble, but if she is found the police would take her back home. Additionally, anyone over 18 who she is staying with while she’s gone could get into trouble for harboring a runaway.
        We would be more than happy to help your friend the best we can. If she wants to reach out to us again to give us some more information, we would love to help her find resources, come up with a plan, or just listen if that is what she needs. We are available by chat 4:30pm-11:30pm at 1800runaway.org or our 24 hour hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). Thanks again for reaching out and we look forward to hearing from you or your friend soon.

        Best,
        NRS

            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 sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.
            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.
            Be safe
