  • I am 11 years old and I live with my dad and mom with an older sister. I dont feel safe with none of them, My mom is rude and my dad is abusive , my older sister gives me disgusted faces. The only ones that make me feel safe are my brothers but they are sometimes with their biolagical mother (sorry if spelled wrong). My parent's abuse gets worse everyday and its stressful for me. I am in a deep stage of depression that I can't even smile anymore.I would cut myself to make me feel "happy".I would rather live with my grandma rather then with my parents.I am actually planting suicide today so I can escape this nightmare.

  • I’m 17 years old I haven’t felt safe at home for a year now. My parents bully and psychologically torment me. They make me feel worthless and that I’m an awful person. My mother twists everything I say to have things her way and there’s nothing I can do about it because “She’s ALWAY right” my father has always given off threatening vibes and I’ve never felt comfortable or safe around him. My parents threaten to take everything away from me for trying to stand up for myself. They say I’m just being a disrespectful little self entitled brat. I don’t know what to do anymore I don’t even know if I’m justified in saying this. I don’t know about myself anymore. I can’t open up to my parents I can’t talk about anything with them. I try my best to please them so they don’t come at me but It’s never enough or good enough. This night my mom started yelling at me because she asked me to clean the dishes and I went to my room to put my stuff away first. She then proceeded to accuse me of acting unreasonable for doing that and Threatened to take away as she says it “Her stuff” I tried standing up for myself but she wouldn’t listen and doesn’t listen to what I have to say because “I’m just a kid it doesn’t matter what I say” I then went back upstairs and started to do the dishes and she continued to call me selfish and entitled and that I’m a horrible person and threatening to take everything away(That means everything... devices clothes meals shelter etc...) I finally had enough and told her to stop being a ********** about everything.(yes I could’ve handled it better) then my dad proceeded to tell me I can’t talk to her that way and he had me cornered in the kitchen and laid a finger on me. I told him not to touch me and acted quick to move his arm away. He then grabbed me but I was able to push him away from getting a good grip. He kept trying to i don’t even know I was so scared and fighting him off hard. I had a clearing to kick him in the balls and I went for it and he evaded it and stepped away. He then started accusing me of attacking him and my mom agreed with him. While that was happening my sister came running downstairs to try and help me but my mom stepped in and prevented her from helping me. I was scared for my life I was cornered and being assaulted and I could only do one thing and that was fight. As my dad backed off and mom backed off they told me they wanted to talk to me after I finished the dishes. When I finished the dishes they told me to move into the living room. I said no I’m fine where I am. I was scared and moved towards the knives and repeated I’m not moving. They then complied and came to the kitchen. They then started to tell me I’m rude disrespectful mean and self centered and incorrect about everything. I didn’t know what I could say I didn’t know what I said. I was to focused on making sure they did not move from where they were. Soon I calmed down a bit and felt a little safer. Our conversation ended and all I got from it is that I suck and I’m always wrong. I’m currently in my room door locked chair barricades to the door with a suitcase packed and everything ready to run if needed. I don’t know what to do now I need help

      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 seems there is a lot that you are faced with 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.
      The easiest way to leave home is with your parents' 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 parents. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern.You mentioned being harmed. We’re sorry you’re going through this. You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You may also be able to report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation. 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.
      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.
      Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button). If you would like to look into further support options, you can text with a crisis worker at the National Alliance on Mental Illness 24/7 by texting "NAMI" to 741741.
      If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
      Be safe,
      NRS

      Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you have been suffering through a lot and it makes sense that you do not feel safe at home given the way that your dad is treating you. It is inappropriate for him to hurt you like that and it must be incredibly difficult for you not to be able to talk to anyone about it. We want you to know that we are here to help in any way that we can. If you need someone to talk to you can always reach out to us over the phone at 1-800-786-2929 or over chat at 1800runaway.org. We can also talk about what options you have to make things more bearable for you. Struggling with depression and self harm is incredibly tiresome and hard work. Many people find counseling or therapy to be helpful with mental health issues. It might be wise to reach out to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to try and find local mental health specialists in your area. They can be reached at 1-800-950-NAMI and they also have a crisis text line available by texting “NAMI” to 741741. Again, please don’t hesitate to give us a call or a chat any time that you need someone to talk to. We are here 24/7.

      Take care,
      NRS
