  • 15 years old

    Hello,
    Im 15 years old female, I live in Hillsborough County Florida, and Ive been thinking about running away. Im not innocent and ive done somethings that I shouldn't have and I know that. I get good grades and I help out A LOT. I apologized to my parents a few times and when I did my parents told me that my apology was fake and I didn't mean it but I did. Every time I do something wrong no matter what it is I get threatened to get kicked out and my parents tell me if I want to leave then leave or they'll kick me out of the house for about 5-10 minutes. While my moms working I take care of what needs to be done and I have to keep an eye on my 3 siblings, make sure they eat and clean up etc. If my mom needs something done I get it done 98% of the time. If I don't do it I get yelled at and my parents say tell me how I don't do nothing which is not true. I cook most of the time, clean, wash clothes, anything that needs to get done. I've been doing virtual school since 2014 started and I haven't left the house since. While I'm supposed to be doing work most of the time I have to watch my baby sister and clean up after her. On top of that my parents treat me different from my other siblings. My siblings back talk my parents and rarely get in trouble for it, I constantly have to clean up after them, and I have to make sure my sister's hair is done if not I get yelled at and anything that I use to do my hair is thrown away or taken away from me. I don't want to deal with this anymore. I already feel like im gunning my own boat and it sooo stressful. I barely get any time for me because im so busy doing everything else. I've been thinking about running away for about a year now and im reaching my deadline. Please help and thank you for listening.

    Re: 15 years old

    Hey,

    Thanks for reaching out to us. It sounds like you're going through a tough time. We'd like to advocate for you and see what options and resources are available to you. You have a very complicated situation and we'd like to explore more about it to see what exactly is going on.

    It's gotta be frustrating to deal with all of this and still get blamed for a lot of things at home. Have you had a chance to talk to anyone at else about this? Can you get any support from other family or friends than can see your side?

    You stated that you were reaching you "deadline". What does that mean? DO you have a safe place to go if you do decide to leave? We may be able to help you find safe options and talk about your plan if we can talk more.

    If you can, call us toll-free at 1800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We're anonymous, confidential and available 24/7. We're here to listen, here to help.

    Best,
    NRS
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.

      Same person

      What I meant in deadline is I hope/wish to get out of here ASAP. Everyone who I tried talking to my parents lied on me and turned them against me. I don't have anyone else to turn to for help.

          Transportation?

          I know where I'm going but it would take almost 10hours to walk there! Is there anything u could do to help me get to that location?

            RE: Transportation?

            Hello,

            Thanks for contacting us. It seems like you're looking for some transportation assistance. The transit assistance we provide at NRS is through our Home Free Program, which is a family reunification program that helps youth return to their families/legal guardians. Unfortunately, we do not provide transportation in order to help individuals leave home.

            We may be able to help you with some travelers aid in your area, which typically contributes 15-25% of the cost of ticket. If you would like to explore this option further with us, you may call us 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us at www.1800runaway.org during the hours of 4:30pm-11:30pm. Also, we may be able to provide you with additional resources, such as a shelter.

            Good Luck,
            NRS
