  • my step dad is so rude to me, some times he smacks me or hits me, sometimes he yanks my hair and pushes me or throws me to the ground. He is barly ever nice to me. my mom doesn't do anything about. I don't like being at home.
    Why does my step dad hit me he is barly ever nice, when my moms not home he is so mean. he hits me, smacks me , pushes me, yanks my hair, but my mom doesn't do anything im afraid to tell her because she will tell him and i don't know what he will do if he finds out. I hate being at home and i want my step dad to leave me alone he is seriously my main problem im only 12 years old and I don't know what to do.

      Thank you for contacting NRS. It sounds like you are in a very difficult situation. It is very brave of you to take steps to improve your situation. We’re glad you reached out to us and we will do our best to help you find resources that may be helpful to you.



      No one deserves to be treated the way you are being treated. It is not OK for your step dad to hit you. It is also your Mom’s responsibility to provide a safe and supportive environment for you. If you feel you are in danger, you can always call 911.



      You could also consider contacting your local Division of Child Protective Services. . They may be able to help you find resources to help with your situation. If you are uncomfortable making the call, you can call us and one of our volunteers can make the call with or for you. We can also help you file an abuse report.



      Another potential resource is the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline at www.childhelp.org or 1-800-4-A-CHILD (422-4453). Childhelp is a 24-hour hotline with volunteers who can talk to you about your situation and provide resources that may be helpful to you.



      Do you have friends or family that you are comfortable talking to about your situation? Do you have a teacher or counselor at school you are comfortable talking to? They may have advice or ideas that may be helpful to you. If you think it would be helpful to you, you can also call us and we can arrange a conference call with your Mom to talk about what is going on with your step dad.



      You can also always contact us via chat at www.1800runaway.org or call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We have volunteers available 24/7 to talk and to help you find resources that may be helpful to you.

        Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We are very sorry to hear you are getting beat up. You do not deserve to be abused. If you feel comfortable talking about the abuse it can be helpful to talk to a trusted adult in your life like another family member, school counselor, or friend’s parent. If you prefer to talk to an anonymous resource like us you can reach out to Child Help, the child abuse hotline, by calling them at 1-800-422-4453 or chatting with them at their website, www.childhelp.org. If you would like to file an abuse report, we can file one with you or for you if you give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us at our website www.1800runaway.org. You can also file one on your own at www.childhelp.org if you would like.

        Feel free to reach out again to us anytime as we are available 24/7 and are completely confidential. Best of luck!

        Stay safe,

    • my step dad(32) is very abusive and always threatens me(12) and my older brother(15) he always acts like the victim when its really me and my brother who are the victims, for example a year or 2 ago(he was way more abusive) i was just cleaning up the house whilst he was asleep and my younger brother was eating and making a mess, so he wakes up and sees the mess my brother made and sees me and was like" who the f*** made this mess and why is this Bologna" i said it was A-" before i could even finish my sentence he threw me to the ground and started to hit me non stop. that was one of the thousands of examples. hes been beating me for as long as i can remember. a few weeks ago my step dad got mad at me for a stupid reason and he came in my room and started to yell and threaten me and i looked at him in the eyes and got enraged for eye contact. (HOW dumb are you to get enraged by eye contact) and he said go to bed and then he straight smashes my phone he didnt pay a penny for. my real dad bought that phone(my real dad is like my best friend) so i get super mad but i let it slide after he left my room he was still talking S***. there is one thing he said that i hate being called because i would never be it is homo after he said that i didnt let slide i started yelling at him and he came in my room saying" DO SOMETHING YOU TOUGH NOW" i was bouta beat him when he pushed to the ground. now i aint scared of nobody but i do know i cant beat him if he gets on me because hes heavy and big so i gotta keep a pocket knife on me i dont care if i go to jail atleast he would be out of my life. i really want to runaway but i have nowhere to go because my dad doesnt have his own place and my grandparents dont have anymore space and i dont have any friends and i cant call 911 because i dont have a phone. no im not homophobic either. he always threatens my older brother also. and i forgot to mention he doesnt feed me when my mom is not at my house i havent eaten anything all weekend because he only feeds the other kids not me. so im pretty hungry

        Hello, thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline! It takes a lot of courage to speak up about what is happening at home. We are here to support you during this time.



        It is not ok for your stepdad to make you take off your clothes and put his knee on your neck, regardless of you misbehaving. We are sorry that you are going through this at home.

        Hi there,

        Thanks for reaching out to us at the NRS. It sounds like this is a very hurtful and scary situation. It’s important to remember that there is a difference between what he is allowed to do legally and what he should be doing as your parent. Legally, your stepdad is allowed to be mad at you. But at the same time, that doesn’t make it okay for him to hit you or call you names when he gets upset over a game. None of that is okay for your stepdad to do to you, and you don’t deserve to be treated like that.

        If you’re feeling like you’d like to talk more about how you’re feeling about this, and if there’s any way we can help you ensure you stay safe, please feel free to reach out to us at 1(800) RUNAWAY. You can also chat with one of our crisis counselors online at 1800runaway.org. Take care, and we hope to hear from you soon!

        Sincerely,
        NRS

        Hi and thank you for reaching out to NRS! We are sorry to hear that your Step Dad treated you this way. It is absolutely not ok for him to hurt you in the ways that you described. He does not have the right to treat you that way. You didn't deserve that and you have the right to be treated with love and respect. That must've been really scary for you! You can reach out to the national abuse hotline if you'd like to report it at 1-800-422-4433 or you can go to www.childhelp.org. We are also available to help make a report or talk about further options through chat at www.1800runaway.org or if you'd like to talk to someone in person, you can call us at 1-800-runaway.

        Hello,
        Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. First off, no- it is not okay for your step-dad, your mom- any one that is your legal guardian to hit you or kick you. You absolutely do not deserve that, and we’re so sorry to hear that that happened.

        It takes a lot of bravery to reach out for help when things like this are happening. It is usually helpful to talk about what’s going on at home with people you can trust - teachers/coaches/friend’s parents. We also have a live chat (1800Runaway.org) and phone line (1-800-RUNAWAY/1-800-786-2929) that are open 24/7, 365.
        We urge you to reach out to us if you need to talk. It is also important to know that if you are ever feeling like you are in immediate danger at home, you can always dial 9-1-1 to contact the local authorities.

        Another resource that may be helpful is an organization called Childhelp. Childhelp provides information about abuse and abuse reporting. They have a live chat and hotline as well. You can find out more at Childhelp.org.

        Again, we think you are very brave for reaching out to us, and hope you’ll reach out to our live chat or phone lines if you have any other questions or want to talk. Good luck with everything.

        NRS

        Thank you so much for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. I am so very sorry to hear you are going through such a tough time!! Your stepfather’s behavior is something that you should NEVER be subjected to and I hope you understand that.



        First and foremost, let me give you a phone number for you to call should that occur again. It’s 1-800-422-4453 which is the telephone helpline for Child Help. It’s an organization that offers confidential help and support to children who are experiencing abuse. Their website is www.childhelp.org.



        It really would be great if you could reach out to us at www.1800runaway.org via out chat option or at 1-800-796-2929 should you want to speak to someone in person. Speaking together we would be able to get a bit more about your living situation which would allow us to look at our database for resources close to where you live. Hopefully we could also discuss ideas with you that will give you ways to deal with the situation as well as get you and your siblings in a safe place.



        Again, thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. Really hope to hear from you soon!



        Sincerely,



        National Runaway Safeline.

    • So a few days ago I came home from school and I had to do my chores and I forgot to do one witch was sweep the floor.. So my step dad got angry and said "you useless brat" them he slapped me on my face. Now I'm 13 and now he's treating me worse and my mom doesn't even care about me. Its like I'm a maid or some sort of slave in this house and the level of anger for me is irritating. My real dad is saying that if I do run away try to go to him but he's in Chicago. What should I do?
