    I am crying everyday because my stepmom is pushing me so hard. She gets mad at simple things. She is pressuring me on my grades and my dad doesn’t even do anything about it. I can’t reach out to anybody or i get in trouble. She makes sure I don’t talk to my birth mom about court or problems I have here. What should I do? My dad never listens to me. I am scared to talk to her. I’m confused and now thinking of suicide.

    Hi, I’m a 13 year old Indian girl living in the United States. Some days are normal, like my mom and I will have a couple of minor clashes, and mostly we are civil and even loving and kind to each other. Then occasionally, we have huge intense fights. She sometimes will hit me hard id it’s really bad, and once she trapped me in my bathroom after I said a cuss word and pushed me against the wall and kicked me and hit me while screaming at me. This was about 8 months ago when tensions were high in my family due to covid. Another incident that happened when I was in second grade: my mom got really angry at me when picking me up from school, and I’m front of the school building when she starts hitting me and shaking me, and screaming that I am a huge disappointment to her. Now she doesn’t hit me as much as she did when I was younger, and it’s not as hard or as frequent, but what hurts most are the words. She calls me useless, stupid, unmotivated, and invalidates my struggles. Even though I’m a good student and I make good grades (usually above a 95, 90 if it’s a hard topic) and I have a lot of problems in my social life due to 5 years of bullying from people in my school. Today we just had another clash and I got extremely angry and started screaming that I hate her, then my mom and dad went downstairs and started **********ing about me so loudly that I could hear it from upstairs, even with my door closed. It was like they wanted me to hear. I sometimes feel like I’m somehow fooling myself into this victim mindset for attention, because most of the time my parents are great parents. We have clashed over the most trivial things, and I’ve started to despise her. Usually I stay angry at her for a few hours after we have a row and then go back to loving her, to quote another user on this thread, because she pretends like it didn’t happen. My dad used to fight for me when I was a little kid, then it gradually evolved into him not caring, and now he is on her side completely and he is just her little puppet which she manipulates. It’s sad because my dad used to be the one who stood up for me as a kid, and my parents still do a lot for me, like help me on my homework whenever I need it, and help me study for exams. They also talk about some of my personal problems with me. However I resent them for some of the stuff they have done, despite them being great and amazing parents who have done so so much for me always. Is this wrong?

      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 confused about some of the emotions you are feeling when it comes to your parents. It must be confusing when your parents show you support and also do things that are hurtful. It is not wrong to have negative feelings after someone has done things to hurt you and positive feelings when your parents show love. You might want to visit Child Help Line where you can read about ways to process all of the tough emotions when dealing with your family. If you are interested in learning more, you can visit https://kidshelpline.com.au/teens and click on the “family” page and choose what you need help with. This page helps youth understand how having experiences like these can be confusing to the brain.

      We are sorry to hear you are still having a hard time at times with your parents sometimes. It is never okay to be harmed by anyone. If you need support discussing what is happening at home or are interested in making an abuse report you can call Child Help 1-800-422-4453. An advocate can work with you and call the reporting line with you and provide support through your challenging time.

YOUR SUCH A PARTY POOPER!!!" so i just cried at the table for a little bit and went up stairs very angry and sad, mad and crying into tears because she gets mad at every little thing i do. she thinks it's very stupid and i'm stupid but i'm not. she's always putting everyone down, and she calls me the w word the b word and i just cry every night. i cry 24/7 like i'm pouring out tears every day and it's not good for me! (btw i'm not sure what the TOS guidelines are for this site but i'm 10) so it sucks. when i was about 9 and 8, she didn't call me those bc i was smarter? idk what it is probably virtual school and i play video games all day i can never focus and do homework. she yells at everyone, even my dad. it's scary bc i have a 16 month old baby sister and she's learning. i don't want her to learn that. i just get so mad at my mom like we went to the store and i just got mad bc they made me sad and hid in the bathroom accidentally having the car keys in my hand, then after i went out she starting cussing and yelling rlly loud at me saying f word and stuff. my school isn't going good it just hurts me and sucks bc now we're all at home doing school while i'm not paying attention and playing video games. she yells at when she checks my missing assignments and when i have like 2+ missing assignments and today she yelled at me bc i took the last izze sparkling water. this hurts me bc i'm 10 and she does this to me it's affecting my health when i'm crying all night, she even made me sleep in the car after i went to the bathroom at the store and i told her i was going when i got out, she yelled at me and cussing at me. i told her to stop bc ppl were staring and then yells at me more. i feel like i wanna run away from my parents but they tell me it's illegal. don't run away from us. i'm so done with her i just wanna leave her. she isn't fair and she like wants to hit me with hammers and glasses and stuff. but anyways that's all. pls do not remove this comment bc i wanted to share this, ok mod? thanks for reading

      Thanks for reaching out to us here at NRS! We know that it's not always easy to reach out for support, and we're glad you did.

      It sounds like there's a lot going on at home, but even still, you don't deserve to be sworn at or called names by your mom. Understanding that you don't deserve to be treated that way and finding safe people that you can talk to shows just how smart you are. Please don't forget that.

      You mentioned your mom "wants" to hit you with hammers and glasses and stuff. If she IS doing those things to you or threatening to do those things to you, that's not okay. If you're feeling unsafe at home, it might be a good idea to try talking to another adult who you can trust, like a teacher, social worker, or doctor. They should be able to talk with you about what's going on at home, how it's affecting you, and what they can do to help. A part of this process might be contacting Child Protective Services to file an abuse report. This is also something you can do on your own, and Childhelp (www.childhelp.org) is a great resource. You can also call and walk through those steps with them at 800-422-4453. This is also something that we can help you with at NRS, so you're welcome to call us at 800-RUNAWAY or chat with us at 1800runaway.org. We can also chat more with you about feeling like you want to runaway, and what that might look like.

      Hang in there.

    I can't tell if my problems are stupid or not, saying I read every single other post here. I'm 15 almost 16 and an only child who just lives with my mom. I should've known doing anything wrong was a bad idea. I had an amazing beginning of summer til I made a bad mistake and that's where my life fell apart. But this was 4 months ago. All she does is yell at me every day, every time something is great she somehow brings me down. Every time I'm somewhat happy she ruins it for me. We've been doing therapy but it doesn't work. My therapist is pretty nice and tries to help me get through things. But my mom's therapist blames everything on me, says she should give me a track phone or for me to not have a phone and all this stuff. I'm one of those girls who typically seem like they're living the best life, a lot of people have said that to my face due to my social media pages. But at home it's yelling how I'm a mess, my room is a mess, I never listen, I never do anything right, etc etc. She disabled some of my social media, stalks it, reads my messages, tells me how she doesn't like some of my friends, blames everything on my ex who I'm still friends with, screenshots things, and put screen time on every single app besides school. I asked her if she could take it off text because I actually need it at times or use it during my free period, but she proceeded to scream at me. Then she says "yeah keep crying" or throws stuff at me or hits me. She never focuses on things I do well, grades, and teams I made for school. I'm going, to be honest, I'm not perfect, I go behind her back and tell my friends more that I tell her. And then she yells hows I don't tell her anything either though she uses this stuff against me and gets too involved. My friends and their parents pity me and say how my mom's crazy. Every day I think about how I wish I could time travel or live someone else's life. I haven't shared this with anyone but sometimes I even hope she doesn't come home.

      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. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. Having your phone time limited seems like it is having a greater negative impact then your parents expected, it might be helpful to explain some of these feelings with your parents in a non-confrontational way. Writing down your thoughts might help a bit so that things don’t escalate in the moment and get out of control, or having a mediator from school or through NRS on the phone with you and your parents might help things stay focused more on goals rather than devolving into a fight.
      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.

    I don't have it as bad as anyone here. My life's pretty great in comparison, I live in a nice house, my grades are good, I'm not being physically abused. I'm still miserable though. I was pretty depressed in middle school and I'm starting to feel like that again and I'm terrified that the depression will start again. I told my mom I was depressed during middle school like a few months ago and she basically said I'm not allowed to be depressed. WOW, thanks a lot mom that's definitely how it works. My aunt (one of her cousins) was depressed for years and she talked about how she was wasting her life over nothing. She completely invalidated what she went through, like all she had to do was decided to get up and not be depressed or something. She's from India and mental illness isn't exactly excepted there so that's why she has these views, but it makes me feel like I'm weak or not good enough. She also hasn't had anything nice to say about me since my sister was born. I was four at the time. All I'm good for in her eyes is getting As and being good at art. Other then that there's nothing good about me. She hates my personality. I asked her today if she could say even one nice thing about my personality and she screamed at me. She manages to constantly praise my sister for being kind and gentle and all sorts of things but she never had anything good to say about me. First she said she had a headache as an excuse for not being able to come up with anything, and then when I asked again she screamed at me. I'm probably just being a cry baby crying and complaining about this, especially when do many people have it worse. My sister is a literal angel, I resented her for it for years, but now she's one of my best friends. I've just excepted that to my mom I'm nothing more than a failed first try. My parents wanted a girl and a boy. My little sister and brother are their dream children. I'm just the extra, the one who is ruining their lives and their perfect family with my temper tantrumS and other bull********. I'm also the exact kind of person she hates. I'm too much like her but not enough like her at the same time. I'm a crappy person overall. She does love me, in her own way, but she'll never love me as much as she loves the other two. I promised myself I would never cry over the woman again but I always end up back here, crying over her. The minute I have a chance I'm going to find a way to pay for things myself and run as far as possible. I'll visit on Christmas and stuff but I need some space. I can't take her negatively. I don't want to deal with the heartbreak and pain every time I forgive her and just end up realizing the exact same things again.
