    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It is frustrating when you thought you liked someone new in your life and then the relationship changes.

    There are ways to try to better relationships like trying family counseling. Perhaps he would be open to going to some sort of therapy with you. Sometimes just suggesting that is a good way to signal that you know that there is a communication problem and you want to make an effort to fix it. Or perhaps there is another way to open the door to communication rather than shutting the door with directly saying you don’t like him. There certainly seems to be a glimmer of hope if you originally did have a good relationship. A psychologist might be able to get to the reason why it changed. If not counseling you could try any idea that includes trying to better improve your communication while doing an activity like fishing together. Just throwing in the idea of needing to bettering the relationship or bettering communication is a strong hint that something isn’t going well and you would like it to change which is a positive way to try to address it because it seems like you do want a way to get it out there.

    Again, we are glad that you reached out to us. It takes a lot to ask for help and you are trying to figure out your options which is really good to see. If you would like to talk more about your situation please feel that you can call us at the National Runaway Safeline 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY or at our web site 1800RUNAWAY.org for a live chat.

    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. It's definitely worrisome to hear that your stepdad threatens to physically abuse your mom whenever they get into a fight. We care a lot about your safety and if you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. It makes a lot of sense that you worry about insulin routine if your stepdad is no longer reminding you. It may be a good idea to set an alarm on your phone or on an alarm clock to remind you when to take your insulin. You may also want to speak with your doctor about the effects of failing to take your insulin and how to schedule injections.

    It seems like your mom and your stepdad are having some trouble fully understanding you when you are trying to relay your thoughts and feelings about your current situation. It could be a good idea to work with a local family counselor or have a conversation mediated by a school counselor/social worker, trusted friend, or family member to help clear the air. If you'd like, you can also call us directly and we can conduct a conference call with your mom (or stepdad, or both) so you have a safe environment where you can express yourself.

    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.

    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, no one deserves to be emotionally or verbally abused. You should be able to feel like you are respected and safe in your own home. You mentioned that your stepdad has told you that you are no longer welcome at home. We care a lot about your safety here at NRS, and if he ever throws you out of the house it can be considered neglect, which you have the right to report if you so choose. If this happens you can call the police or the National Child Abuse Hotline at 800-422-4453.

    It sounds like your stepdad doesn't quite understand when you explain how his actions make you feel. It could be a good idea to work with a local family counselor or have a conversation mediated by a school counselor/social worker, trusted friend, or family member to help clear the air. If you'd like, you can also call us directly and we can conduct a conference call with your stepdad and mom so you have a safe environment where you can express yourself.

    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.

    I am a 12 year old female. My stepdad verbally abuses my mom. And tells me I will End up in the hospital if I don’t take my insulin. He has an alarm set for when I am supposed to take it he usually reminds me and one day he just quit. He doesn’t care about me or my brother and sister. He made me want to runaway. But me and my brother and sister hate him. We do what he says cause our mom loves him but I’m not quite sure if he loves her. And he wishes that me and my brother and sister weren’t born and we all know that including our mom. I just don’t know what to do anymore and I just want to cry but I can’t or I will get into some trouble. And he scares me cause he has threatened to hit my mom before and whenever they fight I want to take my mom and just run until I can’t move. I just want to get away from him when every time he is at home.

    My stepdad and my Mom married 7 years ago. Ever since then , my stepdad has been extremely rude and arrogant towards me. I have an older brother and an older sister who he treats just fine. For some reason he as always had a hatred towards me- like he is constantly out to make me look like a horrible person. I am 16 years old, and finally able to realize that I should not have to put up with such emotional abuse. I try really hard to be the best kid I can be. I’ve never gotten into trouble, I get good grades, I am respectful, confident, and independent, and don’t require help much anymore. Sometime we’ll be just fine, and other days he will get into one of his moods and cause a sene but yelling call me names, weather it be in the house or in public. He’s called me a “drama hound”, “brat”, an “asshole”, “crazy” , “self absorbed”, “rude”, and “attention seeking”. He has also said that I am no longer welcome in our house, and stated “I don’t care what you have to say go talk to a counselor”. As a father figure to a 16 year old girl who is so vulnerable, I fine this unfair and unjust. He will poke and push me down until i’ve reached huge emotional breakdowns, and even then, keep going. I’ve learned it’s unnecessary to argue with him so ill stay silent and not say a word as he screams across the restaurant, or house, mentally destroying me. If I even dare open my mouth to stand up for myself I am immediately put to shame. I know this is wrong, and I’ve talked to my mom about it and she feels terrible about it, and has been seeking help but doesn’t know what she can do about it. As I talk to her she gets upset and I hate to see my mom so sad. She’s suggested a counselor, but I’ve tried it and I don’t like it. I just want everyone to be kind to one another and to realize that I am a person who deserves to be treated with respect.

    Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We’re sorry your stepdad is taking your stuff and bossing you around. It does not seem fair for him to treat you like this as he is not your mother or parent. It makes sense why you are so frustrated with what is going on. It might be a good idea to talk to your mom about setting some clear boundaries for him. If you do not feel comfortable with the way he is treating you, your mom might sympathize with what you are going through and may be able to communicate to him how to mind his own business a little better. Something we can do is host a conference call between you and your parents. We can stand behind you and advocate with you so that you can feel like your mom hears what you are saying and understands these issues from your perspective. If you would like to try that, or if you would like to talk more about what is going on and what other options there might be, please don’t hesitate to call us on our 24/7 hotline 1-800-786-2929 or chat us at 1800runaway.org.

    Take care,
    NRS

    I honestly hate my stepdad too. There are times when he's okay, and things are good, and we all get along, but more often than not he's being a dick, and I'm over it. He's such a selfish prick and has his head so far up his ass to the point where it's unbearable. My mom rants to me about all the bs he does, and he says things that hurt everyone around him, but then when you say something that even slightly hurts his "feelings" without meaning to, he can get all butthurt about it. To him, he's the ONLY thing that matters, the universe revolves around. THIS MAN - sorry, child - HAS A KID WITH MY MOTHER. Once you have a child, your life is no longer about just you. Hate to burst his bubble. If you want the truth, I never expected him to treat me like I was his kid. I could smell the bs when my mom started dating him. I knew he hated me, and he still does. He criticises everything I do, or say, or whatever. I'm in 4h and I show rabbits and beef, and he complains about that, even though I PAY for MY own animals and ALL of their expenses. I take care of them before I sit down to do my homework, or eat dinner. HE does not have to pay for them, HE does not have to care for them. So what gives him the ********ing right to complain? I wish I had the confidence to tell him straight up how things should be but, I'll hear about it from my mom. In the end, it's not worth my energy, anyway because he doesn't listen to anyone, but yet he expects EVERYONE to listen to him. I don't know, I'm just so sick of his utter bull********. And he's egotistical, and narcissistic, and rude, and I'm over it. I want my mom to leave him, and that's not me wanting things to be my way, or whatever, he's just so toxic and not good for my mom or my half sister. He's emotionally abusive, and I don't understand how my mom is okay with that. I wouldn't put up with that. My mom, half sister and I deserve more respect than that. He wants us to respect him even though he literally treats us like ********?! I don't think so! Well, I do think so because I'm so used to faking it for everyone, even though it may not be worth it. For example, he literally said to me mom "...There are days when I don't even want to come home... I don't want to ruin [Half-sister's name]'s life, but —" THEN ********ING LEAVE. SHE WILL BE SO MUCH BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU AND YOUR TOXICITY!!!!! I don't know. I know that I can't change anything, but it felt good to type this rant. Thank you to anyone who read all the way through.
