    Re: I feel more safe at my grandparents house

    Hello there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us through our online forum You are very brave for contacting us and looking for some help. It sounds like you have some concerns about living at home. It’s important to feel safe and comfortable at home. It’s good to hear that you feel supported by your grandparents. We’re glad that you have such a good relationship with them.

    Is there any chance your parents would give you permission to stay with your grandparents? That would probably be the easiest way to stay with them. Have you ever talked to anyone about feeling unsafe at home? Could your grandparents step in or help by talking to your parents about you staying with them? Do you feel comfortable talking to anyone else, like a teacher or counselor at school?

    Another resource that may be useful is an organization called Child Help USA (they also serve Canada). They might be able to talk with you about some of the things you might be going through at home and talk to you about steps you can take to make things better. They can be reached at 1-800-422-4453 and their website is https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/.

    You can also give us a call anytime. We thank you for contacting us and we hope this information has been helpful. Please feel free to reach out to us through our 24/7 hotline or through our online chat if you want to discuss your situation in more detail.

    Stay strong,
    NRS

    Visitation rights with my grandparents

    Hello,
    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

    You certainly have gone through some tough and difficult times.
    You don’t deserve to be abused in any way by any one. It sounds like your grandparents are supportive and caring. It’s good that CPS is looking into your situation and because of this things have gotten a little better. Have you talked to your grandmother about legally getting custody of you?

    In some child abuse cases where it has been declared unsafe for the child or children to remain in the home a relative might be considered as a temporary foster parent or guardian.
    If you have a case manager you might consider speaking with them about staying with your grandmother.

    To get more information you might consider contacting us at 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or www.1800Runaway.org
    How does that sound?

    You did a good job reaching out to NRS and we hope that you will be safe.

    Take Care,
    NRS

    Re: I don't know what to do

    Hello and thanks for reaching out on our forum. It sounds like moving from Kentucky all the way to Maine has been pretty rough on you and your grades and that things in your household are pretty tense right now. It sounds like your grandparents are a great source of support for you and willing to let you move back to Kentucky. We aren’t legal experts; however, that might be an option if your parents agree or your grandparents look into speaking to a lawyer to see their chances of obtaining custody of you. We also have the ability to look up legal aid resources if cost is of concern for your grandparents. Hopefully that helps and best of luck!

    I don't know what to do

    So, I used to live in a very small town in Kentucky with my grandparents close and we moved two two or three times and I kept up my grades. Then we moved to Maine and my grades have dropped a lot and my parents are arguing and they don't let me and my brothers even talk most if the time. We get in serious trouble for the simplest things like putting a sponge on the counter. My parents haven't always been the best and my grandparents have always been there for m . I already talked to my grandparents and they said they'd love to take me in. My parents are super strict and they don't know I have two f's yet. I'm too scared to tell them too. I was doing better with my grandparents so I think I'd do better if I moved back with them. Plus, I'd have more freedom. Please help.

    re: my parents

    Hey there,

    It sounds like you are pretty serious about going to live with your grandparents. You seem to have your mind made up, even though your parents aren't taking you seriously. We do want to let you know that we aren't legal experts, so we can't say for sure what would happen. In most states if you want to live with them and have them take legal custody of you, you would need your parents consent. If they won't give you that permission, that may not be easy to do. We do try to stay non-directive so anything that you decide is up to you. If you need to speak with us further, you can always contact us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or via chat on our website from 4:30pm-11:30pm CST.

    Take care and good luck,
    NRS

    If you have contacted NRS today through another means (for example, live chat, email or bulletin) for the same issue, it would be helpful to let us know that you have already contacted us. NRS understands it takes courage to reach out for help; therefore, we would like to minimize the need for you to repeat your situation and avoid offering you duplicate services.

    Best,
    NRS

    Please help.

    My parents are so unfair, especially my mom. My mom is religious; she's always talking about church or something and it's kind of annoying. I'm a Christian, but she takes it to the extremes. She doesn't like the way I dress, do my makeup, or my hobbies. She's ALWAYS on my case about something, no matter how small. I'm a good kid; never tried to sneak out or anything. Recently, at a friends house, I watched the TV show American horror story and my parents found found out. They were furious. Now that's all i hear about. I ordered a phone case with an actor from the show (because I think he's hot ha) and my mom refuses to let me use it. I payed for it and it took 3 months to get here, but she will not let me use it. She says I should get something "bright and positive" but that's crap. Im a depressed teenager, black is basically my fave color. No I'm not gothic; I just like black. She's just ridiculous. She also yells at me about my makeup, how I just shouldn't wear any at all. But makeup makes ME feel better about myself. Just like I liked the phone case. But because she doesn't like it, I can't use it. My grandparents treat me so much better and actually listen to me, like they value my opinion. Sometimes my dad listens, but he mostly takes my moms side on everything. I just wish I could move out. I don't hate my parents; but I'm so tired of living like this.... Advice please?

    re: confused

    Hey there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline, it seems like you are going through a pretty tough time at this point in your life and we want you to know that we are here to listen and to help you in the best way we can. From what you shared, it sounds like you are ready to leave home.

    So, it seems like you are pretty fed up with your parents and how the custody issues have been going. Have you considered talking to them about how all of this is making you feel? Sometimes just being able to let them know how you are feeling can potentially help your situation. If you feel like you would want to talk to them, but wouldn’t want to do it alone, we have a conference calling service that is available for youth to use. This is where we would serve as mediators and mediate a conversation between you and your parents, we are not here to choose sides but rather conduct a productive conversation to try to solve the issue. Another thing that could be discussed in this call or if you would want to speak to your parents about is living with other family members.

    We hope that we are able to consider some options and are able to provide you with the support needed. If at any point, you do decide to leave, please feel free to give us a call, we are toll free and we would be able to provide you with resources and referrals to shelters in your area. We also have a live chat service that is available every day from 4:30 PM to 11:30 PM CST. We wish you the best of luck in whatever it is you decide to do and hope to hear from you soon.

    Stay strong,

    NRS

    confused

    Hey there. So the past year has pretty much sick for me because I just have had it with both my parents and their bull********. Like going back and forth I have been thinking which parent I should live with. By then now I have had it. I just want to live with someone else like grandparents, aunts, cousins,. Just anyone. Any advise?
