      Hi there,

      Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help, and we’re glad you did. We are sorry to hear that things at home and with your stepdad are so difficult. Everyone deserves to feel safe at home, and to have someone to share their feelings with when things get overwhelming. It may be helpful to share your feelings and concerns about what is going on at home with a friend, a relative, or a trusted adult at school like a teacher or social worker.

      It can be hard to talk about running away or suicidal feelings, and so we are also here to listen and help. You can speak with us at any time by calling 1-800-RUNAWAY. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is also another good resource if you are feeling depressed, overwhelmed, or thinking about suicide. You can reach their 24-hour hotline at 1-800-273-8255, or online at www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org. Your safety is always our first priority, and we are here if you would like to talk about running away. It can be helpful to process with another person and talk through your plans to make sure you’re staying safe! We hope that things at home get easier. If you ever want to call us to discuss this all further, we are always here to listen, here to help. You can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We hope to hear from you soon.

      Best of luck,
      NRS

  • I am 16 years old and Canadian my dad lives in another province and I want to live with him me and my brother live in a separate house and my stepdad has been trying to ruin my life because he doesn’t like me and I don’t like him. He acts nice around my mother but when it’s just me and him he makes it clear he doesn’t like me and that I’m lucky I’m not under his roof or he would make sure get after me for everything and make me miserable. He manipulated my mom into thinking that I do hard drugs and I’m going no where in life and now my mom is making me move back in with her and him. Am I of age to choose what parent I want to live with? Is there anyway I could move in with my dad he hasn’t had custody over me since 2010. Could I move In with an older sibling that has kids and is 25+? I am not a run away risk what so ever I would just rather not live with him but if I have to it is what it is.

      Hello there -

      Thank you for taking the time out of your day to get into contact with us here at the National Runaway Safeline, we are always here to listen and here to help in any way that we can. From your message to us, it sounds like you have are going through a very hard time right now and seem to be very overwhelmed with everything that is going on especially with your step-father. It’s great that you are able to reach out for help in your current situation, it’s very brave of you to do that. It must be very frustrating not knowing what you can do from this point.

      Unfortunately, we don’t know much about laws and/or resources in Canada for we mainly work within the United States. But there are resources that might be able to help you within Canada that can be of more help. There is the “Kids Help Phone” (https://kidshelpphone.ca/). That might be of more help since our resources don’t go outside the United States. There also might be a number in which you can call as well to talk to them about what has been going on. It might be a great way to talk to someone there that can help you get through these terrible times. You sound like a very strong person to keep fighting for what you believe in and standing up for yourself.

      We hope that this resource helps!

  • I hate my stepdad, he ruins my life, everytime he comes home, he always eats all of our food even the food I cook just for my mom, when my mom is asleep and I watch TV, his is all the way up, and mine is all the way down, he comes in my room and tells me to turn it down, when I go in the living room while watching TV, he gets mad at me, and when I talk back to my mom, he always scream at me for no reason, he calls everything his, and he comes in my room without my permission, I am never going to talk to him, and when I tell my mom how me and my brother feels, she always says we need to respect him and love him, I don't love him, and when I try to respect him, he ruins it. What should I do to get him out of my life forever?
