    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

    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.

    I am 11 years old but recently my mums boyfriend of 5 years broke up with her so I want to share what happened I was 9-10 I asked my mum for bread and she said yes I went to my room and he come in there and threatened to beat me that was one of the things he did he would pin me down and start hugging me it made me really uncomfortable or even kissing this lead me to become extremely antisocial and judgmental If a male boy or any gender was near me. He would touch my thighs and make me extremely uncomfortable and treated my grandma horrible he would shout at her and do horrible things he made it clear he did not love my mother.

    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

    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!
