  • 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.



      We wish you the best!

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.

    • 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.



        You can report any mistreatment to Child Protective Services. Child Help 1-800-422-4452 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from harm and can help with filing an abuse report. NRS is available to have a conference call with their agency if you need support with making a report.



        You can also talk to a trusted adult about what is going on if you do not want to make a report yourself. This could be a school counselor or a teacher who can provide you support. You are not alone in this! NRS provides 24/7 call services or live chats if you want to discuss this further.



        Thank you again for reaching out!

        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
