      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 shouldn't be subjected to such harsh treatment. Running away is a big decision and it can be very stressful to figure out what you want to do.

      You mentioned quite a few things about whoopings and pinches and it raises a great deal of concern about your safety. Absolutely no one deserves to be abused. If you are currently at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You have the right to report this abuse to child protective services. 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. You may also want to take pictures of any injuries or bruising that may have occurred from the abuse as that could be very helpful when making an abuse report.

      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.

      Stay safe,
      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 sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now and you mentioned being harmed. We’re sorry you’re going through this. You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
      You may also be able to report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation. CPS can potentially get you safely out of that situation and into a place with more protection for you. If you ever need assistance calling out to CPS to make an abuse or neglect report please call is at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
      You don’t deserve to be in a place that you feel unsafe. Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. You are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
      If you would like to talk more in detail please chat soon through our website www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button) if you are unable to call in. We unfortunately cannot give advice as we are non-directive. You know your situation best
      We hope to hear from you soon.

  • I'm 12 and my dad died when I was a baby and then my mom gets with my stepdad and I hate him because he's trying to replace my actual dad and he doesn't listen to my side of things and just blows up and screams at me. I want to leave and he makes me so unhappy to the point of me wanting to kill myself because my situation is so unpleasant. I don't know what to do now.

      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 sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.
      You don’t deserve to be treated that way by your step-dad and feel like you aren’t listened to and that he just screams at you instead of having a civil conversation. This kind of treatment may be reportable against your step-dad. Please keep in mind you by no means deserve any type of abuse, emotional or otherwise. Unfortunately, emotional abuse is often harder to provide evidence for compared to physical abuse which is often what CPS relies on when conducting an abuse investigation. That said, we can’t be 100% sure what the outcome will be if your local CPS decides to open a case based on what you share. Sometimes CPS decides to remove minors from the home and other times they offer services such as family counseling or mediation instead. The only way to know the outcome might be to reach out to them directly and if you’re ready to do that we are here to help you through that process. Reaching out to Child Help USA at 1-800-422-4453 or www.childhelp.org may help to get a better understanding of what may happen before and after a report is made.
      Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
      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).

      Hello There,
      Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen.
      We are sorry to hear that you are having issues with your mother. In order to best help you we would need to know more information.

  • My whole life I’ve been a pretty difficult child, I’m only thirteen and I get in fights I sometimes steal food (not from stores but like food my mother has bought), my mother always tells me all I do is make her life a living hell and I’m just a stupid pathetic mistake. When I was about eight my mom did buy me this little kitten, and I love him to the moon and back, in fact without him I would even be alive today. Recently my mom has been saying she’s going to take him away and I know if she does I would be heart broken. I’m confused on what to do I’ve been trying to find certain places where they can shelter animals and humans but I have no money to feed him I’m more worried about him than me. I can’t handle a relationship with my own mother where almost every day I’m being put down and hurt. To put it clearly I am in an abusive relationship. My cat is the only thing that can make me smile and feel happy I honestly don’t know what I’d do without him. But I know I can’t stay with someone who threatens to kill me! most of the time I feel like just killing myself and ending all my pain I know that what I’m writing seems like just a stupid little kid complaining about how I didn’t get what I wanted but I just need help I’m confused on what to do and I have no idea how to handle stuff like this. My situation means nothing compared to the others on this website but I’m not stupid I know how the world works and I know this is not how you’re supposed to treat your kid. So my finale question is: what do I do? Should I try to run away with my cat and find a place that can take care of both of us? I’m pretty tall so I’ve been thinking I could pass of as fourteen and get a job such as a worker at a fast food place so I could at least try and support myself and my cat. I know that staying with my mom is not an option. So what do I do? There’s lots I didn’t write like the fact my mom has beat me until I couldn’t sit or even walk without hurting myself. I can’t call the police because I know that since I’m just a little kid they’ll side with my mom. I feel like I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place thanks for reading sorry for all of my grammar errors.

  • I've been feeling like running away from home for 3 years. I'm a 13 year old, and my family has been putting so much pressure on me that a lot of my hair is falling out whenever I shower or brush my hair. My mom keeps focusing on negative events that happened in the past, and uses that to complain. I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!

      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. It sounds like you are feeling stress from the relationship you have with your mother and being sexually assaulted. We understand that dealing with such an emotional situation things may start to feel overwhelming.
      You do not deserve to have had such terrible things happen to you. We can only imagine what you must be going through. It’s not your fault that these things have occurred. You are very brave for reaching out to NRS. We understand that has been difficult for you to navigate.

      It sounds like there has been numerous attempts at suicide. This may feel like an isolating and frustrating time for you but you are not alone. If you are having feelings of depression or suicide we encourage you to reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. Another resource to consider is RAINN 1-800-656-4673 a support based organization for victims of sexual abuse etc.
      Sometimes talking things out might help to come up with a plan to help cope with your situation.

      We want you to know that we are here as support to help you both through this challenging time.

      Hi there,

      It sounds like you are having hard time at home and we appreciate you sharing a bit about your situation. It is great that you are reaching out and it shows a lot of strength as well.

      You mentioned that there might be an option of moving in with your sister. A helpful first step could be to talk with her about this. While it is not illegal to run away, your parents could have the police return to you home if you leave without their permission since you are a minor. You could discuss with your parents the option to see if they would be willing to give permission for you to stay with your sister. Another possibility could be to have your sister talk to your parents with you to make sure your needs are being heard. We also offer conference calling service where you call into the hotline so that we talk with your parents together and mediate the conversation.

      We are always here to listen and explore your options with you. We can be reached at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). If you aren’t able to call, you can also chat with us through our website (www.1800runaway.org) at any time since we are 24/7. We are confidential and here to help.

      We look forward to hearing from you soon,

      Hi there,

      We're really sorry to hear you are having such a hard time right now, particularly with your brother. If you feel threatened or are hurt you can always dial 911. You may also consider reaching out to anyone you trust about what's going on at home: maybe that's another relative, teacher, parent of a friend, or anyone you feel comfortable with. You may also consider filing an abuse report with www.childhelp.org (1-800-422-4453).

      We'd like to help further but would need some more information from you to see what we can do. The best way for us to help is for you to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us via the chat feature at www.1800runaway.org.

      Hello There,

      Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a lot right now and we are here for you.
      It sounds scary and dangerous for your mother to be taking pills to try and kill herself. One resource that may help you get help or understand is called SAMHSA which is the substance abuse and mental health association. They can be reached at 844-945-0508, and they may be able to provide options for you and your mother.
      It is unfair for you to be getting yelled at constantly and we are sorry you are having to deal with this situation. You may want to consider talking with a school counselor or a teacher about what has been going on at home.
      We would like to help you more with your situation and help explore your options. We are available by phone or through our online chat platform 24/7. Please reach out we are here for you. Best of luck!

  • Hi I am 11 and a kid with a nice future i say. Recently i have seen how rude my family and friends are to me. Ever since this pandemic has started i have been so depressed. Today has been the worst and it all started in my oldest brothers room. I was using his computer and was looking for the charger to it since it was close to dying. He then got mad at me and asked for his computer in a very bully way. I said it was downstairs and he pushed me out the very hardly so of course i was going to do something. We were right by the stairs and i pushed him all the way down because of my anger i was furious. My mother then asked what happened and only saw me since he was laying in pain and i was at the top of the stairs. She then hit me 3 times on my arm and it really made me hurt. I am honestly waiting and planning to run away from this stupid home. And no this is not the first time before the pandemic it was worse. I am also in the closet as a Bisexual 11 year old and nobody takes me seriously. My dad and mom believe in God a lot and i hate that they will never understand who i really am. I just want someone to love me and celebrate me for who i am not just because i am a bright "little" kid.

      Hi there,

      Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline and for being so brave to share so much with us. We are sorry to hear that you have been having a difficult time at home. You most definitely deserve to feel loved and celebrated for who you are, and we are happy to provide you with support. You are not alone.


      It sounds like you have had a few issues with your older brother, and sometimes your arguments have turned physical. It can be difficult to get along with siblings sometimes, especially now during COVID when everyone is constantly at home. One thing that may be helpful to lessen these disagreements is to talk to your brother about what has been going on between the two of you, and how it is making you feel.

      You also mentioned that your mom hit you after scolding you during you and your brother’s fight. Nobody deserves to be physically harmed in any way, and your safety is our first priority. If this behavior continues, please know that you have a right to report this behavior to the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1(800) 422-4453.

      It was very brave of you to share with us that you are bisexual. You deserve to feel accepted no matter what! If you would like further support from others in the LGBT community, you can contact the LGBT National Youth Talkline at 1(800)246-7743. Another helpful resource may be the LGBT National Hotline at 1(88843-4564, or you can visit their website at glbthotline.org.

      We would be happy to talk with you over the phone or online in a live chat to discuss your situation further, answer your questions, and possibly provide more resources and referrals. To access this support, call us at 1(800) 786-2929, or at www.1800runaway.org. Both of these services are available 24/7.

      Thank you so much again for reaching out to us, and contact us again if you need more support. Best of luck to you, and stay safe!

  • I feel you. It hurts. I'm going through a similar situation and I was thinking of suicide instead of running away. I've already hurt myself a few times and I think its time I do it. I have a friend and he says that I could stay at his house but I don't know (since I'm a girl so-). My parents yell a lot and don't listen to me. I try to make them happy. I TOLD THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR AND I REGRET IT. MY PARENTS GOT A CALL AND THEY ARE VERY MAD AT ME. I FEEL BAD AND I HAVE NOBODY TO TALK TO ABOUT MY FEELINGS. I'M CRYING AS I TYPE AND I'M PLANNING ON A CAR ACCIDENT BUT I DON'T KNOW IF I'LL DO IT. SORRY FOR THE CAPS. I'M VERY UPSET, STRESSED, OVERWHELMED, WORRIED, MUCH MORE. I LITERLY FEEL WORTHLESS SINCE MY DAD ALWAYS SAYS THAT I'M UGLY. WHY? WHY DOES NOBODY CARE ABOUT ME? I WISH I COULD LIVE A HAPPY LIFE AND FIND SOMEONE WHO ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT ME. I'm going to go get a knife and cut my leg. Also I'm very sorry I started to talk about my situation instead of trying to help you. I'm sorry. I ruin many lives, I know that, I'm sorry. I wasn't always like this and I wasn't always so negative.

      Hello There,
      Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, it takes a lot of courage to reach out and we are glad that you have decided to reach out to us.

      We are sorry to hear that talking to the school counselor was a bad experience that is unfortunate. We know you mentioned suicide, and we want you to know you are important and you are worth living. You do not have to deal with your situation alone, there is help out there. Suicide is permanent and your situation that you are in right now is temporary. If you are feeling suicidal please reach out to The National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1800-273-8255. You can also reach out to us by phone or by chat we are here to help you the best we can.

      It is understandable that you are having these feelings, it is okay not to be okay. You do not deserve to be called ugly and your dad calling you names has nothing to do with you but the fact that he has insecurities. And we want you to know you are not worthless and it is hard to feel that way. Also you do not need to be sorry for explain your emotions and telling what is going on. You probably helped someone else as they might be feeling less alone or can relate to your thoughts.

      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 sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.
      Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
      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).
      We hope to hear from you soon.
