      Thanks so much for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline. That sounds like a really tough situation. Your dad has no right to hit you and treat you like that. It can be so difficult right now with all the stress of Covid.
      If you haven't, would it make sense to try and talk to him about how his behavior is making you feel? If that is too difficult, maybe your school counselor is someone you can reach out to - to talk about how your Dad is treating you and maybe talk about having a call with him or ways to handle the situation.

      Again, parents should not use physical violence with their children. Parents using violence against their children can be considered child abuse and can be reported by you to Child Protection Services, if that happens and persists.
      It's good that you reached out today and it can take courage. If this escalates, please reach out again to NRS, as we're here 24/7 and you can always text us or call anytime. And finally, in most states you are free to leave as an adult at 18, but being 17 is close. Good luck
      Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.

          Hey there,

          Thanks for reaching out. There is absolutely NO reason that parents or stepparents should bully their children. It's not right. And it takes courage to try and talk more seriously to your parents about how their behavior makes you feel.

          A couple of suggestions: the first is to see about talking to your school counselor about this. often they can be supportive and may be a good sounding board regarding ways to address this. Another suggestion is to try and talk to any other adults that you trust that you may be able to confide in for support. Finally, you can reach out to a couple of hotlines that can offer support and advice, such as:
          www.kidsincrisis.org - (203) 622-6556 or www.childhelp.org/ - (800) 422-4453.

          Again, you do not deserve to be bullied. It is not right. Thank you for reaching out. National Runaway Safeline is open 24/7 and you can call, text at anytime.

            I have had to deal with a lot of bad stuff from my stepdad and I am 12 years old but I still flinch when I am in the same room as him, he calls me lazy, brat, useless, dumb, worthless, weak, and lots of other names. I want to run away every single day I feel worthless and have had severe anxiety and depression since I was 5 years old. I started cutting my wrists when I was 10, the pain of his disapproval stings worse than the knives.

              Hi there,

              Thank you for contacting us here at NRS and we appreciate you being so honest about what you are going through. It takes a lot of strength to be vulnerable and express the hurt you are feeling. It sounds like your step dad often talks down to you and calls you really hurtful names. This type of treatment, especially from an adult who is supposed to make you feel safe and supported, is not okay. We want you to know that you are not alone in this and we are here 24/7 to listen and support you.

              Sometimes when someone feels a lot of hard emotions that are getting overwhelming, self-harm is used as a release for all of those painful emotions. It is completely normal to need ways to process and cope with those difficult feelings and we want to help keep you safe. If you are interested in talking to someone about how you are feeling and brainstorming ways to cope, you can text with a counselor by texting "connect" to 741741 or you can chat with someone at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ . For some individuals, getting creative can be a great way to process feelings and to take your mind away from thoughts about self harm. Maybe you enjoy writing, poetry, creating art, or listening to music, or something else creative.

              Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. Perhaps there is a family member, friend, counselor, or teacher you could reach out to for support and a safe space to talk. If you are not ready to talk to someone in person yet, the resources we provided are 24/7 and confidential. Additionally, you can reach out to the NRS hotline or live chat to talk.

              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 and stay strong,
              NRS

            I just want to say to all the people who are going through all this stuff with their supposed “family” that we all know that counselling when your younger doesn’t help too much because if something is honestly wrong or you say something that they don’t thinks appropriate for a child to be feeling like killing themselves or someone else then they have to report it to your parents when it’s meant to be confidential.
            I wish we all had the rights to privacy !
            for those of us who came on here thinking about killing themselves I get your position. Things have happened with my family too that makes me want to just give up and I don’t want this site replying back with how did that make you feel because it made me feel like absolute trash . It’s annoying how people try to compete with your situation cause every single flipping one is different
            when you try talking to friends that aren’t the most supportive or aren’t good with advice for these situations it’s annoying like you could say my stepdad hit me today and they could reply with oh that’s too bad but it could be worse you could go hungry today or not have any more food in your lunch box left for today just like me .
            It’s like just shut up and stop. All we want to do is have someone we can constantly be around that makes us feel good about ourselves and doesn’t put us down.
            Again when it comes to suicide please before you do anything just let everything out , give it a good ********ing cry !!! But don’t kill yourself because there’s always something better out there it’s what I believe! Just think about the future. Remember that nothing can always come easy. But if your ever thinking to kill yourself don’t because if you think about it this way that maybe in the future you could have a child that will cure cancer or hell even COVID or maybe you could discover another planet or a way that helps human kind then don’t take that away from the earth
            you have these people that you have in your life for a reason , just think about that . Think about the day when the bad people will be gone and your still alive. Don’t darken your life try to make it brighter.

              Hey there,
              Thank you for reaching out and sharing your story! It seems like you have been through a lot and we are happy that you are still with us through everything. We thank you for sharing your story and your words of support, and also understand the frustration it can cause to have things you shared in confidence be shared outside of counseling because of certain laws that are set up to protect but can just make it harder to get the support you are looking for. Comparing of trauma and one-upping each other’s suffering can be a negative spiral making it harder for each person involved to heal, so it makes sense to want to cut that out of your life. There are people out there willing to be that safe supportive person, it can just take a lot of trial and effort to find them, we hope you can keep up hope to find that chosen family.
              Suicide can already be hard to talk about and we think it’s awesome that you feel comfortable sharing your story with us and others. Everyone deserves someone or a place they feel safe to vent to and be listened to. If you or others are considering suicide the Suicide Hotline is a great resource; https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ or 1-800-273-8255. They are there to listen even if others in your life aren’t. Another awesome resource if you are struggling with mental health in general is https://www.nami.org/Home, they have a lot of information about different mental illnesses and might help shed some light on the feelings you are experiencing. They also offer counseling if you don’t have access to a regular counselor or don’t feel safe sharing suicidal ideation with anyone close to you.
              Thank you again for sharing your story, stay strong and know that we are here to listen if you ever need someone, either by phone at 1-800-786-2929 or through online chat at www.1800runaway.org
