    Thank you for contacting us at the National Runaway Switchboard and we hope that we can be of help, as you try to figure out ways to remain safe, since you are alone without your mother. We imagine it is a scary experience to know that you are about to get "jumped" and we hope that you can count on reaching out to others you trust to be there for you before your mother returns. Why do you think you are sure to get jumped? Have you tried contacting an adult in your family or reaching out to your mother to ask what is the safest thing to do? What can you do to avoid getting in deep trouble? Is the situation related to school or is it going to escalate outside of that environment? What can be done to get security at school or the police in the community to assist you? Are you able to defend yourself without letting it get out of control?

    How much longer is your mother going to be away? There are elements to your situation we are not aware of and we hope that you can enlighten us more on what caused the situation to get to this point. Who are the people trying to attack you and what do they have to gain by assaulting you? We are not in a position to tell you what to do but if you are in need of someone to talk to, we can be of service to you in this way. We can be reach at 1800-RUNAWAY 24 hours/day if you need to figure ways to help better your situation? What do you think is going to be different if you ran away? Do you think your mother is going to get angry or punish you for wanting to leave to avoid getting jumped? Do you have a plan for running away and what are your goals for getting in touch with your mother when she returns? We hope that you find ways to stay safe and use the necessary measures to get help before things get out of control. Have you considered calling the police ahead of time to let them be aware of what is going to happen? We are here for you and want to hear from you soon. Good luck.

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
