    Thinking about running away

    I am 15 years old and I am considering running away because my dad is verbally abusive I guess, I get grounded at least 6 times a month for the stupidest things like not picking up the living room or something. Him and his wife whom I hate because she is lazy and yells at me and steals from me and my dad but my dad gets a nice [Remove] out of her whenever he wants so he doesn't care about what she does. She smokes pot and stuff too while I'm home and my dad doesn't know or care. My step-mom and my dad argue all the time and go to the bar a lot and I can be left home alone from like 4 pm to 2 am. I have to basically clean the entire house and if I don't do one thing my dad freaks out and starts getting all up in my face a lot. I have been considering running away and staying with a friend up the street until my aunt can come and pick me up because I have talked to her about this and she says that I can live with her and she can go to court for custody of me. My dad gets drunk a lot also and gets mad at me for dumb stuff and he blames me for everything that goes wrong and tells me to move out and go live with my mom/ aunt and I'm really considering it.. What should I do?
