  • What can I do

    I'm 16 years old and I really HATE living at home. My mom and dad had a brake for around 2 years and now he's living back at home. I used to be my mums bestfriend we did everything together!!! Now I barely talk to her she dosent ask how I am nothing. I hate calling him my dad... It makes me physically sik everything he does I hate he chooses my brothers over me, they all go out and leave me at home alone. It makes me so angry and sad that there is nothing I can do to make him leave. My mum is always yelling and swearing at me and 'HE' always goes along with it too. I just want to leave I can't even invite my friends over, I'm failing in school and I'm scared to come home off the school bus because I feel so unwelcome in my own home :'( none of this sounds bad but it is my whole life has turned around now I'm literally crying writing this I just want him gone

    RE: What can I do

    Hi Nat123,

    Thank you first of all for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline and posting on our bulletin board. It sounds like living at home has been difficult for you since your dad returned home. It sounds like you are definitely going through a tough time and it is affecting your happiness, not to mention your schoolwork.

    Have you considered talking to your mom or dad about how you're feeling and what's going on? We know that this can be difficult; we offer something called conference calling to help. If you are interested, a person from the National Runaway Safeline can be on the phone to help mediate a conversation between you and your parent(s). You can call in anytime you and your parent(s) are free to initiate this service.

    If you'd like to talk through this or any other options, feel free to call us any time. We are here to listen and to help in any way we can. Please remember that we are available 24/7. We hope to hear from you soon.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
