    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?

    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 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.

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 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.

We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. It seems like you are going through a lot of emotions due to how your step-dad treats you and still want to continue spending time with your mom but that its being balanced against your mental health and need to stay away from your step-dad there.
    If you want to brainstorm some options, we can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email or bulletin for assistance. If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about how we can help specifically, please call or chat soon.

    I'm 13 and I already want to run away because of my stepdad already. My parents are divorced and I have two homes, my dad is single and my mom is engaged to my stepdad. I love my mom, I really do, but if it wasn't for my ******* stepdad I would actually want to go. He always looks for the smallest things to yell at me. He would make rude jokes saying "I know everything" but one day I said "Yeah, I do." but he acted like a ***** and yelled at me. Like what the ****, you said that so don't act like an a**hole! He even looked through my phone once and inappropriate things were in there like you have to understand, I am a teenager going through puberty so expect that ****! And the audacity to look through my phone without my permission? That's a whole *** stranger, and I wish death on him! I want him at least to break up with my ******* mother, I hate him with all my guts and I do not regret saying this! Please help, I told my mom about him but she never listens.

    - Hopeless teen.

    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 would like to be of assistance to you if we can. It is times like these that would be nice to have a listening ear. It is also important that you remember to exercise self- care. You showed some by reaching out to NRS. Good for you. What you have been experiencing sounds very sad and very, very unfair. You do not deserve to be treated this way by your stepdad. It’s not your fault that he behaves this way. It sounds like there has been some physical and emotionally abuse. Your feelings are important and they matter. You don’t deserve to be hurt by anyone. It is not your fault that this has happened to you.
    You are deserving as anyone that wants to be happy.

    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. 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 are feeling depressed or suicidal we encourage you to reach out to the National Suicide prevention Lifeline at: 1-800-273-8255 for immediate support.
    You did a good thing by reaching out to NRS. Good for you.

    Take care,
    NRS

    I DESPISE my stepdad. He always, ALWAYS messes with me. When me and my older brother always had it bad with a "father figure" but when he came along it was just too much. I was four when he came. And we would play these sick games, like I will hit your hand with a belt 100 times. Stuff like that. Years later, around 7 years, I am now 12 and now, he is just emotional or whatever. He always annoys me, he uses power that he dosen't even have. I have talked with my mom about it many times, but she just says "I'll talk to him" But it never works. Now it is really affecting me, I am now have suicidal thoughts, I just want him gone. I've asked her. I just wanna get away from this horror, I just want a way out. But there is no way out. I have a good relationship with my mom, but I dont know if it will stay that way, if she chooses him over my brother and me then, I would be ruined for life. I would only have one way out. What should I do? I have tried breaking them up, it really didn't work, I've asked her to leave him. What should I do? please let me know. But I can tell you, talking with him is not an answer, he's strong and can really hurt me or anyone in the household. Please tell me, I'm desperate!
