  • My mom just put her hands on me.

    I am 12 about to make 13 and my mother just put her hands on me. I don't care if you are my mom or not, don't put your hands on me. I was raped a few weeks ago and I told her, but she doesn't care. I'm packing my stuff, what should I do?

    Thank you for reaching out to us, it takes a lot of courage to talk about this. It sounds like you’ve been through a lot of traumatic events, you definitely don’t deserve to be treated that way. It’s not okay that your mom puts her hands on you, and it must be really difficult for you to be dealing with that. It’s also not okay that you were raped, it’s a horrible thing to go through and your mom should care.

    Although you’ve been through a lot, you should know that since you are a minor, when you run away, your mom could file a runaway report at a local police station. Although running away is not illegal, if your mom does file the report, the police will have to bring you back home if they find you. If you’re willing to try, you could call Child Help, which is a national child abuse hotline at 1-800-422-4453. When you call, you can report the abuse that’s going on at home. If you’re not comfortable with doing that alone, you could ask a trusted teacher or adult to call with you. If that’s not an option for you, you could call us and we can help you connect with them. You could also reach out to RAINN, which is the Rape Abuse Incest National Network at 1-800-656-4673. They could provide you with the emotional support you may need since your mom isn’t being very supportive. They could also give you resources in your area that could help you cope.

    We hope this information helps a little bit and if you ever want to talk more about what’s going on, or if you need more resources, you can call our number at 1-800-RUNAWAY, we’re here 24/7 and toll free.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
