  • I’m bipolar with my step dad sometimes I get along with him sometimes I don’t... I hated him from the start when he first moved in he stole my bedroom... because apparently he had more stuff... but I stay in one bedroom with my 2 other sisters... yea it pissed me off... but I let it slide because I was still getting to know him.. It started off very bad because once he got comfortable he started to just punish us right away... he would always take all of our electronics away because we did something wrong it didn’t matter how big or small the situation was he would still do it. It was as if it was a pleasure to him... as if he liked doing it... I started to get used to it a little because he calmed down with the punishing... But I hate him so much at the moment because a family member just recently passed. And the day I was in my room crying he came up...didn’t even bother to ask if I was okay. And told me "give me your phone" he took my phone just because I didn’t make sure my brother did his chore right. I was stressing a lot because I have 4 songs to perform to a judge pretty soon...haven’t even practiced that much and its right around the corner. And I have to stay on top of watching all my siblings while being stressed about are family member... it’s as if he doesn’t care.. He tells us that he doesn’t like taking are stuff away but he has to... no he really doesn’t. It’s not my fault my brother did his chore wrong I do everything correctly... I’m 15 and I’ll be 16 pretty soon. he takes my stuff all the time like I’m a little child and yes ik I’m short ash but that’s not right to still treat me as a child. Today I got in a big fight with him... yes there was cussing involved but I couldn't help it I had too much on me and he wanted to call and start telling me crap that I didn’t want to hear he just started yelling right away. I told him that he’s not my father and that I hate him. So he took everything he bought for me from me... all I wanted was for him to actually sit down and talk like a fatherly figure... and the fact that he married my mom without permission from me makes me mad.. They been together for a year now. I tell myself all the time that I can’t wait till I move out... that I’m almost there just have to put up with it 2 more years... and it actually makes me feel better... I talk to mom about this stuff but she always says that she’s trying, or I’ll talk to him... But then he always wants to be right he thinks he’s king of the house even though my mom worked her ass off through blood sweat and tears just to buy this house... and he thinks he owns it because he pays for mostly everything... I want to be able to bond with him but can’t because this reason.... and don’t tell me to sit down and talk with both of them because I did everything like that already...

      Hello There,
      Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It seems like you are going through a difficult situation. It seems frustrating for your stepdad not to respect you.
      One option to consider is to talk with your stepdad about your feelings or you can talk with your mother about how he is treating you. Another option to consider is to talk to a school counselor about what you are going through. Sometimes talking to a professional can help you feel better and they may be able to provide you with resources.
      We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. We wish you the best of luck!

  • I hate my stepdad because when I was 9, he used to smack me in the face like 10 to 15 times a day and I was getting tried of that ****. When later on he did it so hard he knocked out my 2 front teeth and it took 3 years to grow back, about when I was like 11 and 12, he used to do worse and he would start beating my *** so much that when I had enough, I slapped the **** out of him. It obviously caught 200% percent of all his attention and when I did, he came up to me and said he would throw me off the second floor window of the hose and I ran for my life and went to my room and locked the door, and when he came to my door, he unscrewed the ***** knob of my door, and my room was on the first floor of the window and I opened it and I jumped out and ran At least a mile because I have a faster metabolism then he does, on the way home, I keep telling myself in my head that he can go **** himself on his SUV and make out with it instead of my mom. He is not even my dad to begin with!!! And my mom does not give two dog **** about it and she always roams under his shadow and goes with his side because he is the "ADULT". And I try to overcome him and say that he can't do no **** and ur not even my **** dad. My parents divorced when I was unborn and my mom was pregnant. And my stepdad came along when I was 6, and then in a year, he became a giant fat piece of ****. I'm now 17 and I need to send this **** to prison. Bonus Fact: He **** on every kid in the world. This is probably him at his job, "Maybe we should turn all airplane seats into toilet seats, and save money on fuel because in order to keep the plane going, we have to keep ****".

      Hey there,

      Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension.

      You mentioned some things about your stepdad's behavior that raise concern for your safety and well-being. Absolutely no one deserves to be abused. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering. It may also be a good idea to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.

      If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

  • I hate with all my heart my stepdad because when he is mostly a nice person to people, In disguise, he is a deep down killer. My mom got divorced when I was 3 and for 12 years, my mom was single and she was wealthy as a chairman for Raytheon. But when my step dad came along, the first year, I thought he can make us family again, and then within that time, he became a downright b**ch. And out of my mom's net, I think (No I know) he is a male gold digger. He thinks of wiping me out everyday so it's just my mom and him, and I am like WHAT IN THE DOG S**T F**K!!! And when one time when he was on his computer, he had a prison sentence in his history and he is 48 marrying my 35 year old mom. He was charged for 25 yrs in prison for MURDER of a 17 year old, the second I saw it, I took a picture when he was in the bathroom and I showed it to my mom and she was devastated, but apparently, she did no s**t about it and she stayed with that dangerous man, So the next day, I took an attempt to run away and it failed, and the next thing I know, this seriously drunk man puts a f**kin dog electric shock collar on me and frees me when I go out with my mom and when I go to school and I am 14 like why the f**k would you do that and it's not my fault you murdured someone and you are a very dangerous man. And I need to run someone please help me.

    P.S. Sorry for all foul language, I just need to clear my head and the fact I will die a teen.

  • I have lived with my stepdad for 3 years now, and we have never got along but in the past year it has gotten worse. He gets mad over petty things such as what time I choose to have a drink (I got one while he was in the kitchen and he shouted at me saying why didn’t I have one earlier), the way that I wear my clothes (he laughs at whatever I wear), and he says that I talk too quietly (even though he talks to himself all the time). He says he wants me to spend time with him but when I go downstairs all he does is criticise me and make me feel worthless. He calls me things like “useless” and “stupid” and for the past few months I’ve felt depressed and cried myself to sleep most nights. I feel like he takes all of his anger out on me. He laughs at my pain (I have to wear splints on my legs and they burn, and when I cry or say “ouch” he laughs at me). My mum passed away so I can’t speak to her, and my other family members like my stepdad so I can’t talk to them.

      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. 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.

      Unfortunately, we don’t know much about resources in the United Kingdom for we mainly work within the United States. But there are resources that might be able to help you within the UK that can be of more help. There is the “Child Help Line International” (http://www.childhelplineinternationa...-UnitedKingdom) so that you can look to see if there is a youth crisis hotline 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.

      We hope that this resource helps!

  • This isn’t about me because I don’t have any divorce parents but this is about my best friend. Basically my 30 yr cousin is engaged to my best friends mother and me and my bff used to actually like the idea of them together but now we both hate it. My cousin bosses her around as if he’s her dad and he always says things to make her feel like she’s not enough, I know she’s gonna grow up hating them because her mom has always been bipolar and very bossy but it’s gotten even worst ever since my cousin came into the picture. I feel really bad for my bff because she lost her dad due to a car accident and now my cousin likes to act like her dad when he’s not even good at that and plus he gets mad whenever she talks about her dad or talks about my dad because she sees my dad as her father. But I genuinely just wrote this out to get this off of my chest because I feel like I can’t talk to anyone about it.

      Hey there,
      Thanks for reaching out, it seems like a really complicated situation for sure, but it seems like you care a lot for your bff and want the best for them. It’s tough to see them heading towards what seems like a bad situation and we totally understand wanting to get that off your chest. It may not seem like much now but being there to help support them through all this probably means a lot to them and hopefully it helps them to work out the situation for themselves and come to a decision they are happy with. It seems like they have been through a lot already and hopefully your friends’ mom can see what’s happening and try to take the right steps. It may be worth trying to talk to other family members that your cousin respects and see if they might help point out that your cousin doesn’t need to be so bossy and talk about the negative effects it has on your friend. That is if you have a family member you trust to try and go about it in the right way.
      Hopefully this has helped you feel better about the situation and see that you have some options, if you need someone else to talk to about the situation please don’t hesitate to call our hotline as well at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

  • I can't tell if my stepdad is the creep or I am is this abuse? Am I being raped in the middle of the night without knowing? Why did my parents get divorced :'(

      We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. We would like to be of assistance to you if we can.
      Sounds like you feel that you are being sexually assaulted during the night. We’re so sorry that something like this could be happening to you. You don’t deserve to have this happen to you. What you think may be going on is not your fault.
      It is also important that you remember to exercise self- care. You showed some by reaching out to NRS. Good for you.
      We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat so that we might learn a little more about your situation and how we might assist you. For your safety is there anyone you can go to about this? If possible lock your bedroom door or put something against it. If you have a cell phone set it to record during the night. NRS is here to help and here to listen.
      We are here to support you during this troubled time.

      If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about how we can help specifically, please call or chat soon.

      We are so sorry to hear that your stepdad threatens you like that. You don't deserve to be treated that way and what you are describing could be considered emotional and verbal abuse. It's good your mom sticks up for you, but it sounds like sometimes she is inconsistent in doing so. Perhaps you can have a serious, heartfelt conversation with her explaining all that you feel about the situation and what you would like to see happen. The more you can communicate in a healthy and productive way with her, the better. Then again, perhaps there are other people you feel comfortable with telling too. Maybe that's a relative, teacher, pastor, or someone else you trust. You have a right to feel safe and express yourself.

      Another option you have is to file an abuse report on what's going on at home. We know sometimes that is a hard choice to make, but you do have that right. If an abuse report is made it would likely lead to a child protective services investigation. They would likely interview you, your mom, and your stepdad and determine what the best course of action is. Sometimes that simply involves talking things through and checking up later to see if things are improving. If things aredeemed detrimental to your well being, you could be removed from the home, though this is not always the case by any means. If you want to file an abuse report you can do that through your state's child abuse reporting hotline or through Child Help (www.childhelp.org) at 1-800-422-4453. You can also file through us here at National Runaway Safeline. But again, whether you decide to file or not is up to you. We honor whatever decision you make and support you either way.

      We are pretty concerned when you talk about killing yourself. That's pretty serious. If you ever feel suicidal, please reach out for the help you deserve. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is staffed by people trained to talk about suicide, so they are a great resource. You can reach them at www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org or call 1-800-273-8255. You can also reach out to us anytime to talk about suicide or anything else on your mind. We are confidential and open 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY or by chat at www.1800runaway.org. We want you to be safe. Things can get better and you have many options besides suicide.

      You also mention you've thought about running away. That's also a pretty big decision to face. We never tell anyone what to do, but you may want to consider things like where you would stay, how running away would affect your school, how your mom would react, and so on. Also know that if you leave home without permission before 18 your mom could file a runaway report on you. If you wanted to avoid any runaway reports you might consider just asking your mom if you could live elsewhere. If you have permission to live somewhere else that's safe and nourishing, that would be one way of getting out of the house while avoiding the ramifications of running away.

      We'd like to help out further but need a little more information from you to see how to assist. The best way to do that would be if you give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us via the portal at www.1800runaway.org. Please be safe. We hope to hear from you soon!

  • Same thing here when my step dad gets mad with me my mom would be sided with him and then be mad with me to. Also I do not like his rules because I'm not use to it and he will get mad and take the things that I own. He claims that he is going to hit me but to me it do not make sense to me because how hes not my real dad and I don't think he deserves to punish me . He also makes my mom feel bad when I be acting a certain type of way the way. My step dad and my mom make me feel unfair because my mom is always on his side so I think it is unfair .Sometimes I wish my mom and my real dad was still together so I will not have to go through this with my life.

      Hello There,
      Thank you so much for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline and sharing a little bit of your story with us.
      It can be super frustrating to have to live with your step dad and not get along with him. It seems what you are describing could be emotional abuse, as you do not deserve to be threatened. You can file a report by calling Child Help at: 1800-422-4453. You can also call us or chat with us and we would be able to help you with making an abuse report.
      We know you mentioned your mother always being on his side, which can be really hurtful. One option to consider is to talk to your mother about how you are feeling, she may not even know you are feeling this way. We know that these conversations can sometimes be difficult that is why we offer conference calling. Conference calling allows you to be heard and we are there to provide support for you.
      We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options, please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support to you. Best of luck!

  • I hate my stepdad, he has done nothing wrong to be me. But my dad has left me from a very young age, I have seen my mom drink, she would leave me for days so she could go and party and drink. I have seen her with different men, she is an amazing Mother , she’s been through a lot of pain in her like with my dad. She had my Sister, with another man and we moved country she then meet my Stepdad, he was great with her but I was always so afraid of my mom leaving me like my dad did and not loving me anymore she of course deserves the best in life. My step dad is like a father to my sister. But I hate him I can’t change the way I think of him, I can’t help but hate him whenever I try and let my guard down it never works I try and do it for my mom but I can’t help but hate that man I have been on antidepressants for 3 years now my mom is very supportive but many times I have tried to commit suicide so I wouldn’t be a problem in my moms life anymore. I can’t live and I can’t die either way i still hurt others. And not one person understands me, my mom always tells me “doesn't matter if you had a bad life does not mean you should be the way you are today” and I understand that but it still hurts I don’t feel comfortable with a man even my father showing their fatherly love to me because I never felt it. And I know I am the problem in all of this I just don’t know what to do.

      Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage.

Our knowledge of helpful community based resources and our understanding of youth in crisis related laws is limited to the USA. If you are located in a country outside of the USA, you can use this link to find a youth helpline in or around your country: https://www.childhelplineinternation...pline-network/.

  • I hate my stepdad. First things first, I am 11. My stepdad shoves me and calls me horrible names daily. He yells at me, shoves me around, favorites my sister, and manipulates my mom into thinking that I am a disrespectful *******. He has been living here for more than a year, and has not changed one bit. The police have been called on him many times and nothing has changed. When he accidentally left his jacket on the floor today, he screamed at me and said “YOU ********ING LAZY PUNK” “WHY THE HELL DID YOU LEAVE MY ********ING JACKET ON THE FLOOR” All the while my mom just watches and does nothing. This has turned into a cycle, him yelling at me, cussing at me, and my mom doing nothing. He buys expensive gifts for my sister daily, and while giving her those gifts, saying to me that “You don’t deserve ANYTHING you little prick” My mom will not hear a single bad word about him. He manipulated her into yelling at me, and her harming me physically and emotionally. As I am writing this, she just took out all the electricity from my room (from my stepdad’s request) Now my sister, my mom, and my stepdad are all against me. I can’t even go down for food or water because my mom and my stepdad will yell at me. Every single day, he taunts me like “You seem to be changing topics a lot. See, real people don’t need to change topics” or “Shut up. You’re acting like a ********ing baby”. It is impossible to get in a word against him because he raises his voice continually until he is bellowing so hard. My biological dad cannot help because he is homeless. Every single day is filled with dread on my behalf from today’s argument.

    Now there is a rule in the house that “Anyone that talks bad about Will (my stepdad) gets punished severely.” I can’t even see my dad anymore because my stepdad does not allow it. I have not eaten for 11 hours because I don’t want to go downstairs and get yelled at. When his son arrives, I am required to be “friends with him” or get a severe punishment. Please help me, I don’t know what to do.

      Hi, thank you for reaching out to us; we are glad that you did. It sounds like you are in a very scary situation at home between your stepdad being so abusive and awful towards you, and your mom allowing it or doing it too. You don’t deserve to be treated this way and it is wrong. You are very brave and smart for finding us and telling us what’s wrong.

      We are very sorry that the police don’t help you, it seems like they should, but they can only act to help you if there is obvious physical violence. One place to try and get help is through a trusted adult through school.

      Hello,
      Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

      We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on.

      We are so sorry to hear about the tragedy of losing your father. We understand how painful it must be for you. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
      It sounds like you are unhappy with your stepfather and the lack of communication that seems to exist. We understand that it can be difficult at times to be able to express to one another how you feel.

      It probably would feel nice to have a listening ear. Though times may become frustrating it is also important that you remember to exercise self- care. You showed courage by reaching out to NRS. Good for you. Your feelings are important and they matter. Sometimes when faced with tough situations one consideration may be to seek support through counseling. Being able to vent and express emotions may be a way to discover coping skills.

      NRS is here to listen and here to help.
      We can best help by phone or chat so that we might learn a little more about your situation and how we might assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about how we can help specifically, please call or chat soon.

      Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).
      If you would like to seek counseling help contact NAMI 1-800-950-6264 www.nami.org


      Take care,
      NRS

      Hi there,
      Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
      While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
      We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
      Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).
      If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
      Be safe,
      NRS
