    Hello! Thank you so much for reaching out.

    It sounds like you’re going through a lot, and we want you to know that you’re very brave for handling this all on your own. You mentioned that you want to be reunited with your mom, and it’s hard to do so because of guardianship, and lack of support from your grandparents.
    Sometimes it may feel like the whole world is against you, and it can be hard to feel like you have no-one on your side for continued support, but you got this! An option you may want to explore would be to talk to your mom, and see if she can coordinate a time for you grandma/grandpa, her and yourself to sit down and talk custody rights. If you guys are able to sit down and talk, that may bring you guys to a good understanding where you all stand as far as your living arrangement.

    Along those same lines, you may consider the option to talking to someone in your school about the disagreements you’ve been having with your grandmother. If there is any abuse besides verbal, it may be good as well to bring it up to a trusted adult. In case that you don’t want to talk to anyone in school, you may reach out to the National Association of Mental Illness, and talk to a counselor about your recent battles of wanting to kill yourself. We care about you and want you to be safe, the number to contact them is 1800) 950-6264.

    We hope these options and resources have been of some use to you. If you need additional help, or want us to reach out to an organization on your behalf, you can call us anytime at 1800) 786-2929. Best of luck!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for taking the time to write us here at NRS. It can certainly be stressful at home when the adults in the household are not supportive. We are sorry to hear things are so volatile at home. It sounds like your dad's strict approach to things has been isolating you from your support system and causing you quite a bit of stress. You do not deserve to be treated like this by your dad and it is not your fault.

    Sometimes having a safe space to talk about things can help us think more clearly about situations and brainstorm coping strategies. Helpful people to talk to about your situation at home might include a friend's parent, family members or a counselor at school.

    If you are not quite ready to talk about things in person, we are available 24/7 to listen and help as much as possible. You can call our hotline at 1-800-786-2929 or use our live chat services anytime at 1800runaway.org if you would like to talk more about things at home.

    We wish you the best,
    NRS

    When I was younger, my mom got into a divorce with my biological father and got remarried a couple years later to my dad. Well, my dad is extremely strict. I don't know where to start. For starters, I just got out of being grounded for 5 months because I got a C+ in a very very hard math class. I had no phone and could not go anywhere besides work. Now I am ungrounded... but not really. He refuses to give my social media back, and I have a time limit on how long I can text people (30 mins a day). Also, I have a boyfriend, and I really like him, but I'm not allowed to see him outside of school. At all. There's no reason why. He's a good guy, lives with a decent family, and has a secure plan for the future. My dad makes me so mad. He also is very mean-- he calls me worthless and a disappointment. He talks bad about me behind my back to my sister! I don't understand why! I just don't know what to do. Is he always going to be like this??

    As of right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.

    While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.

    We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out to NRS. It sounds like you’re feeling really frustrated and overwhelmed. No one deserves to be yelled at or ignored.

    If you feel like your mom and stepdad’s behavior could be abuse, you have the right to report it to the authorities at any time.
    Childhelp, an organization we work with that focuses on preventing child abuse, defines abuse as: when a parent or caregiver, whether through action or failing to act, causes injury, death, emotional harm or risk of serious harm to a child. If you’d like to ask more questions about abuse or the reporting process, Childhelp has an anonymous hotline you can call at 1-800-422-4453.

    When you’re living in a tense situation at home, it can be helpful just to have someone to be able to talk to and get things off your chest, like a friend or a family member you trust. Even parents of friends can be helpful. You can also check if your school has a counselor you can talk to. Activities like writing your feelings out in a journal, exercising, or finding ways to spend less time at home (like joining a club or team at school) can also make things a little easier on you.

    We’re here for you 24/7 at 1-800-786-2929 if you’d like to talk more about your situation or brainstorm other options.
