    Hi there,

    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It sounds like your siblings are being hurtful and your mom is not responding in a caring way. That cannot be easy to deal with. Here at NRS, we have a conference call service if you ever want assistance having a mediated phone call with your mom about how you are feeling. Please call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY if you are interested in that service. You deserve to be heard.

    We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email or bulletin for assistance. If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about how we can help specifically, please call or chat soon.

    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org.

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Hi there, thanks for reaching out today. Sounds like you are not accepted at home and you are feeling like you need to leave. That sounds like a very hurtful and stressful situation. You should be cherished and loved for who you really are.

    You mentioned needing a safe place to go. Please call or chat us if you would like us to locate the nearest runaway and homeless youth shelter: 1-800-RUNAWAY or www.1800runaway.org. We can also help call out to shelters with you on the line.

    Please don't hesitate to reach out so we can look for those resources for you or if you would like to talk through your situation.

    Best,

    NRS

    I want to run away from home because nobody cares about me and my mom doesn’t even care about how my siblings treat me and I’m a senior in high school but I want to leave everything behind me and just leave and find somewhere I can go and people who care about me.
    My life is so easy and I have what any girl could ask for but I don’t have my mom standing up for me against my siblings when I am being called all out of my name and it really does hurt because I try my best with everything I do and I want to be there for all of them but I don’t want to love them if they don’t love me.

    Hi there,
    Thanks for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline. We are so sorry for what you have been going through. You do not deserve to be treated that way and we want to do what we can to help. An option you have is to file an abuse report against your mom and step dad. Child Help is a great resource that can help you start the process. Their phone number is 800-422-4453 or you can look at their website at childhelp.org. If you do not want to file a report but need a safe place to stay and a family or friend’s house is not an option, you can look on the National Safe Place at nationalsafeplace.org or text “SAFE & your location” to 44357. Please feel to reach out again if you need any other help or would like additional resources- either by calling us at 800-786-2929, chatting us on www.1800runaway.org, of emailing us at [email protected] . We wish you the best!

    Im 13 and really want to run away ive been thinking if the idea since i was around 10-11 but now ive really had enough. i used to live in Canada which made it hard but now i live in Florida so taking off woulldnt be as challenging. My mom and dad both abuse me emotionally and they dont even know it, ive talked to other adults such as other family members and close family friends but they all say the same thing, that they yell at me because they love me. Its gotten to a point where im a giant ball of rage and get mad at everything, i try to keep it in sometimes and cry it out at night when everyone's sleeping but lately its been a lot harder to do that. Its gotten to a point where my mother would get mad at me, push me, and id punch her right back in the face causing her to have a bruised eye, but i dont mean it my temperament has gotten worse over the years of her and my step dad constantly yelling at every single little thing i do and always making me feel like trash. Even before all of this i used to have problems and was recommended for counseling but my mom never takes my mental health seriously and yells at me for making myself seem "mental" and "looking for attention." Ive been self harming for quite some time now and have been trying stop, my appetite has gone down, and im always mad or sad. Sometimes i even think about ending my own life to get away from everything. Before my parents started emotionally abuse me i used to have a biological dad (that lost custody of me) who would always physically abuse me and do such awful things such as leave me to starve and leave me in the garage with only underwear in the freezing cold Canadian winter, so life has never been easy for me. It was going good for the first year without him but then thats after that 1 year my mom and step dad started emotionally abusing me. I get threats from them all the time such as "i will punch out all your teeth" or "i will slap the life out of you" i just want to be a normal kid but i know that in order to be one i have to get away from them first. Please help me im so trapped this has been going on for years and im so done with them i just wanna get away.

    I hate myself to the point of no return. I need to run away because I cant take it anymore. All my life I have watched others become successful and here I am not getting anywhere. I hate being yelled at when ever I am home because I am compared to my sibling which does" EVERYTHING" in the house but the grass which I do. I am so under appreciated that I don't want any interactions with my family. Maybe after this I will finally find my purpose and who I really am meant to be as a human-being in this huge world.

    Thanks for reaching out to NRS. It sounds like you’re feeling overwhelmed and looking for a way out. Without knowing more about your situation, if someone is abusing or hurting you, please know that no one deserves to be treated that way and you have the right to report that abuse at any time. You can tell a teacher or nurse at school, call the police, or your state’s child abuse reporting hotline.

    If you’re planning to leave home, the most important thing is to make a plan for your safety – having a safe place to stay, enough money to pay for food and other needs and a plan to work. We get many calls from youth who find themselves in dangerous situations because they ran out of money or were sleeping outside. If you’d like to give us a call, we can help you find youth or runaway shelters in your area.
    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.

    I’m gonna go, straight after school, my phone will be turned off so no one can call me, hopefully this will make my parents understand the severity of what he does to me, I can’t put up with it anymore.

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for contacting us, it takes a lot of courage to reach out and share your story. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension - you should be able to live somewhere where you feel happy, safe, and secure.

    You mentioned that you have previously had thoughts of suicide and self-harm. We care a lot about your safety, and we can help you find resources that can help you cope with these feelings. You do not have to face this alone, and there is so much help out there for you. If you are thinking about hurting yourself, the National Suicide Hotline could be a good resource for you. You can check them out at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/, or you can call 1-800-273-8255 for help and support any time.

    You stated that you have someone at home who drinks and becomes aggressive. It can be really hard to live with someone who struggles with an addiction to alcohol. We want you to know that you are not alone. If you’d like to talk to other young people who are dealing with friends or family members who have drinking problems you can check out Alateen. You can find more information about this support group, or find a local meeting here: https://al-anon.org/newcomers/teen-corner-alateen/.

    If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

    Stay safe,
    NRS
