  • Need to finally leave

    My parents are very strict on me and my siblings, especally when it comes to cleaning. My mom goes into blind rages where she calls us ungrateful children, and emotionally abuses both us and my father. My dad reacts to this by taking it out on the kids, but me in particular. I'm the oldest at 17 and the "biggest **** up, because all I do is ruin their moods." My father has threatend to kill me because "if he killed me he'd eventually get out, but I'd still be dead" then proceeded to tell me to make a decision on college soon because he cant stand having to deal with me in his house. Hes gotten physical before. I want to leave now because i cant stand the abuse, but i dont know where to go or how to do it.

    Re: Need to finally leave

    Hello there,

    It sounds like you are concerned with both your mom's blind rages and also your dad's threats. We are sorry to hear of this emotional abuse you are dealing with. You certainly don't deserve this and do have the right to report it; however, emotional abuse can be harder to prove unfortunately. You mentioned college decisions so it sounds like that might be a way out. We are unsure how soon you turn 18 though. As far as not knowing where to go/turn to, there are a few different resources that might help and exist on the National level since we don't yet know your city/state.

    Child Help of America ( can you direct you on where/how to file an abuse report if you decide to go that route. (We can help you with that as well should you decide to reach out to us directly.) As far as where to go, not all, but many areas of the country offer safe place shelters. More information can be found here: We'd be happy to continue discussing your situation with you, so feel free to Live Chat or call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY for direct assistance. Good luck and stay safe!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
