      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
