  • Abuse

    I'm 13. I live with my grandma,grandpa, brother. My grandparents love my brother but hate me. I would move to my moms but her husband abuses her and I don't feel safe there. My grandparents abuse me. I get grounded for dumb reasons. Not that long ago I got grounded for asking "why". When they get mad at me they get in my face causing spit to go on me and they hit me (slap,shove, poke my shoulder so hard it leaves bruises) every time they hit me it leaves marks. My friends parents don't mind if I move in with them as long as it's legal. I feel safe over there and want to live there. Can anyone help me please?

    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). First off we want to say that abuse whether its physical, sexual, emotional or verbal, it is never okay and you do not deserve it and do have the right to report it. We want you to know that you do have the right to make a report with Child Protective Services. Child Help USA is an information and referral line that can connect you with your local CPS abuse hotline. That number is 1-800-422-4453. If you ever felt like making a report or needed help, we are here to assist with that. We understand that making an abuse report can be intimidating so if you like we can call together to provide support. We say this because generally, the age of majority is 18 which means that until that age you have to live where your guardians tell you. So if you leave home without guardians consent they have the right to file you as a runaway and have the police look for you. If the police found you they would return you home, unless you report abuse or neglect. We want to let you know that you have our full support with whatever you decide to do. You are welcome to give us a call and we can talk about your options. 1-800-786-2929
    Best wishes,
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
