  • I have no one

    Hi. So my topic is basically what I am talking about. I feel so alone in my own house and feel like ********.The highlight of my dad is when I get to go to school to be away from my family. I have two younger brothers and then my parents. I can like my 8 year old brother, but the 12 year old is unbearable. He is such an asshole who says ******** that is so terrible. My mom runs the house. I love my dad even if he's said some ******** that's not okay, but my mom--hell no. ******** her. She took my doorknob, has had my phone and gave it to the 12 year old and she calls me lazy even though I do hella chores. She controls the money I work for and she gives me punishments for little things I do. She thinks everything is disrespectful. She has called the cops on me when I wouldn't come home. And she favors the 12 year old and lets him get away with everything. I mean I acknowledge that I play a part in the problem, but for the most part it's not me. She gets upset when I don't text her back when she texts my friends to tell me something--like it is not their job to tell me what you said..if I had my phone it wouldn't be a problem. My dad even agrees with me most of the mom is a control freak. I am 16 btw, I'll be 17 in January. I've even been put in therapy for being "disrespectful" which is not helping at all because I am expected to make a change which I have been working on, but my mom doesn't. Every little thing is picked at by my mother. All my friends think she's insane, my coworkers thinks she's insane, and even my friends' parents think she's crazy as ********. I have no one to talk to and I have to keep this inside which is driving me insane. Since I have no phone I can't contact one of my friends when am feeling like ********. I am ready to get out of this house, but I want to continue going to school because I do want a future. My dad said that he would not mind if I lived with a friend when I asked because he understands, but my mom won't allow it. Idk why bc it just kills a two birds with one stone. Control is why. If she doesn't have access to me at every second, shewill go crazy. And the 12 year old always sides with her and comes at me and she will side with him when we argue. And my dad is just sick of the fighting that he won't take any part of it so I feel like I am going crazy. I can't do it anymore.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for contacting us at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are going through a really hard time right now. It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help and we are glad that you decided to reach out to us.

    We are sorry to hear about your situation at home with your mom. Talking to family members or friends can be helpful in many situations. School counselors can also be of great resource in many situations. While, we are not legal experts just generally speaking your parents are responsible for you till you are 18 and if you are to leave home without your parents’ permission and a police report is filed then the police can bring you back home and whoever you are staying with could get in trouble with the law. However, at 17 the laws can vary and in some cases you could leave home legally without your parents’ permission. The best way to find that out would happen in this situation would be to call the local police department. If you call us at our 24 hour confidential hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) we would be happy to just listen to you, discuss in more detail, explore your options.

    We are here to support you through this process. We wish you the best and hope to hear from you soon.
