    Hi,
    Thanks for reaching out; we are glad that you did. We are sorry to hear that your mom passed away when you were so young, and that your dad left after that. It sounds like you are going through a lot of pain and suffering due to the way you are talked to and treated.
    It sounds like you are struggling to stay sober from weed, but it's very hard due to what you are going through. We are very glad that you have your grandmother to listen to you and to believe you.
    It's understandable to want to live with her. The hard part is that it depends on who is your legal guardian, which it sounds like is your aunt. Maybe you can ask your grandma to get a lawyer and go to court to apply for custody of you, based on how you are treated.
    We do hope that you will chat us through this website so we can talk about this more with you. You can also call us at 1-800-786-2929 (1-800-RUNAWAY). Both are confidential and 24/7 and we can talk with you about what your options might be.
    We truly hope to hear from you soon
    Sincerely,
    NRS

Few years past again and im in my room again trying to get sober from weed but i cant while living in this house hold, they mad me feel horrible everyday the only people i can stand in this house is my brother and sister but my 2 cousin and my aunt put to much on me. They also call me all types of names like 'whore, hoe, slut'. I tired several times to talk to my aunt about letting me move in with my grandma but everytime its a no, and she wont give me a reason either. My grandma make me happy and makes me feel self, shes always there when i need someone to talk to and my aunt is to but at the end of the talk its like she forget what i said and doesnt show that she cares. Is there any thing you can do to help me ive been wanted to moved for several years now. Please help.

    You do not deserve to be cussed at and treated like a slave, we are so sorry to hear that you are going through that. If you feel like you are being emotionally abused, you do have the right to file a report. You can file a report by calling or chatting with us, and we can help you file a report. You can also file a report by calling Child Help at 1800-422-4453.

You could consider asking your parents if you can stay with your grandparents, even if it is short term.

    Hello There,
    Thank you so much for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a really difficult time and we want you to know that you are not alone.
    We are not legal experts but we do have some information on the laws. So if you were to leave and go to your grandma’s without your mother’s permission, she could file a runaway report. If the police were to find you they may bring you back home.
    You could consider talking with your grandma and see if she can talk to your mom about letting you stay with her. You can also consider talking with a school counselor about what is going on at home.
    We would like to help you more; you can give us a call or chat with us online. We are available 24/7 to listen and to provide support. We wish you the best of luck!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to NRS. It sounds like you're in an extremely rough situation at home. What you're describing does sound abusive and no one deserves to be treated that way. But it's good that you're looking out for yourself and asking for some help.

    Unfortunately, as the National Runaway Safeline only serves the United States, we will not be able to provide further assistance with your situation. However, Child Helpline International might be able to help. You can reach out to them and find more resources at their website: https://www.childhelplineinternational.org/

    Thanks again for reaching out! Please take good care of yourself.

    Well I'm 15 and my mother doesn't like she makes me sleep on the floor while she and her boyfriend sleeps comfortable in bed and the only way she gives me food is unless I do slot of chores like taking care or her child washing her clothes cleaning up her mess which sometimes she does on purpose and plus she is verbally abusive and by sleeping on the floor and doing chores is the only way for me to not be on the streets she threaten to throw me out of the house my grandmother lives in america and I live jamaica but I don't know how to go and live with her worst of all my mother is spreading false rumors to try and destroy my perfectly splendid reputation telling lies to all the people that I'm exposing nude pics online which is totally a lie because I respect my body and would never do so I just wanted some advice on what to do I have no other family members where I live

    Hi there,



    You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your mom's permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your mom. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.



    Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).



    Be safe,



    NRS

    Hi I’m 11 about to be 12, I live with my mom alone because her and my dad aren’t together no more. My mom always curses at me and threaten to whoop me with a belt. I always tell my grandma this , and she understands me . I just want to live with my grandma because she’s sweet and caring, every time I go to her house I feel comfortable and safe more than my own house. I’ve always wanted to live with my grandma but my mother just refuses , what should I do?

    Hi there,

    We are sorry to hear you are having a rough time at home with your stepdad's wife. You certainly don't deserve to be hit or abused in any way. If you want, you can file an abuse report about what is going on through www.childhelp.org (1-800-422-4453). You ask a good question about living with your grandma, so let's try to answer that.

    The easiest way to leave home is with your legal guardian's permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your stepdad.

    Hey I'm a 15 year old boy and my real parents are dead so I was adopted by my step dad. He married women that just always yells at me and she used to hit me but she started working night shift so she's always to tired to do it. She's made my life a living hell and all I want to do is get away from here but I've always been afraid to because I'm scared of having to come back to her being worse then what she is now. So I was wondering if there's anyway I can move out and live with my grandma and not have to be anywhere near her.

    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you have been going through a difficult time and we want you to know that you are not alone. Moving around a lot can make it difficult to make friends and can be extremely overwhelming, so it is understandable to feel the way you are feeling.
    We know you mentioned how your mom terrifies you and how you do not feel safe. One option to consider would be to file a report. You can do this by contacting Child Help at 1800-422-4453, and they would be able to help you with a report.
    Also we are not legal experts but if you were to leave home without permission you could be considered as a runaway. If the police were to find you they could bring you back home. One option to consider would be to talk with your parents and grandparents about how you are feeling. They may be able to help you with options.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any more questions or would like to explore options, please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. We wish you the best of luck!
