    RE: Teen mom

    Hello,
    Thank you for reaching out to us for help. It sounds like you are having a really difficult time right now. We are sorry to hear that you do not feel loved and welcome in your home. Nobody deserves to feel that way. It sounds like you are ready to leave, and you want to take your daughter with you. That must be a really difficult choice. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. What kind of help are you hoping to get? We can try to help you out with options, resources and support. You can call us 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or chat with us on our website, www.1800RUNAWAY.org, every day between 4:30pm and 11:30pm CST.
    Before you leave, there are a few things you might want to consider. Here are a couple questions you can ask yourself:
    • What else can I do to improve my home situation before I leave?
    • What would make me stay at home?
    • How will I survive?
    • Is running away safe?
    • Who can I count on to help me?
    • Am I being realistic?
    • Have I given this enough thought?
    • What are my other options?
    • If I end up in trouble, who will I call?
    • When I return home, what will happen?
    Since you want to take your child with you, there are extra considerations. What is your custody situation? Running away is not a criminal offence, but running away with your daughter could have consequences. It might help us help you if we knew a little more about what is going on in your life. Please give us a call so we can see how we can help!
    Best of luck,
    NRS

            Hello,
            Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

            We are sorry that you seem to be experiencing some troubled times at home with your parents.
            It sounds like they want you to leave but without your son.
            NRS does not give advice but we might be able to help you explore some options.
            It might help if we knew a little more about the situation. It seems like an unreasonable request to make of you. How were you hoping we might assist you with this situation?

            You are welcome to call our 24hr crisis line at 1-800-Runaway (7867-2929) or visit www.1800Runaway.org NRS live chat to speak about your situation.
            NRS is here to listen and here to help.

            We hope to hear from you soon,
            NRS

                Hello,
                Thank you for taking the time to write to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are feeling unloved at home and want to move somewhere where you think you will have better opportunities. We are not legal experts but generally speaking a person is not considered an adult until they are 18. This means that their guardians are legally responsible for them. So the parent is required by law to provide for the youth (food, shelter, school, etc.) If they fail to do so then they can face legal consequences. This also means that the youth cannot live anywhere else without parents’ consent. There are exceptions to this rule but those include getting the court involved such as emancipation or Child Protective Services removing the parent’s rights. Since you mentioned that you have your parents’ permission it does not seem like there would be any reason for anyone to stop you. We hope you found this information helpful and if you need anything in the future please give us a call anytime. 1-800-786-2929.

                Hi,
                Thanks for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. We are sorry to hear you are in such a difficult situation.
                It sounds like you are trying to keep custody of your baby by running away from your Department of Social Services caseworker. Unfortunately, we are not legal experts here at the National Runaway Safeline, and we cannot say with certainty what might happen if you do this. It may be possible that DSS tracks you down, and it also may be possible that you get away from your caseworker for good.
                Of course it is important that you think about where you might go, how you will get there, and what you will do to survive once there. If you need help talking through any of this, we encourage you to reach out to us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We are always here to listen, here to help. We may be able to provide you with a number for family legal aid in your area so that you might fully understand your rights. We regret that we cannot help you in that area.
                If you need us, just call. We would love to continue talking about the situation and see what information and resources we can provide. Stay safe and stay strong.
                Sincerely,
                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 seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
                While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. Since we are not legal experts we cannot say for sure how the police would handle custody of your son. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
                We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by forum to assist you. 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).
                If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
                Be safe,
                NRS
