    Hello Id like a new family or possibly some place I can live independantly and do what I want to do. Currently my family doesn't let me do the stuff I want to do. My parents are very hypocritical. What I want to do in life is be a video game engineer and a computer engineer Id like a place where I can do that or Atleast somewhere I can bring my laptop to and play. I'm 14 years old.

    Hello there,

    It sounds like you are considering leaving home and would prefer to live somewhere where you feel like your dreams of becoming a video game and computer engineer. That sounds like a goal you are quite passionate about and would need to have stable internet access if you leave.

    As far as a new family, typically that happens if a. your parents agree to transfer guardianship over to someone else or b. your local Child Protective Services decides to remove you from your home due to abuse/neglect. Some cities/states also offer runaway and homeless youth shelters as a temporary option. We don't know exactly where you are located, but National Safe Place can be a starting point as far as shelters. Hopefully that gives you a start. Good luck!
