  • I'm 12 about to turn 13 and I'm from TN.I have had schizophrenia and most of my symptoms are severe stress and anxiety.I just feel so depressed all the time and have considered running away since I was around 10.My parents have been split up since I was born.I've been trying to get my father to have full custody since I was 7 but in my state i havent had a say in where i go or what makes me happy.Even now when I tell my mom I don't want to stay with her and want to go into custody with my father she just brushes it off or ignores me.Shes tried to get my father in prison multiple times for no true reason.She has lied to me since I was old enough to under stand it.I feel so much happier at my dads whenever im over there and we have been trying to get full custody for over a year and my mom denies everything that i say that's wrong.I have been left alone by myself since i was 8 for over 11 hours at a time and basically raised myself.I said i didn't want to be put into online school but she did it anyways.Im on probation for truency because i haven't been able to coop with the change in my life that is online school.I want to run away but dont know where to go or who to ask for answers.I've been seriously considering running away but im nervous about what to do and where to go.

  • I'm 13 and my parents are divorced. I have three older brothers who don't like it here. My dad cheated and my mom moved. I love my mom a lot more but sometimes she can be really controlling. I don't wanna live with that. Me and two of my brothers want to live on our own. None of us have a job and we can't really afford to live on our own. But in the meantime we live with our dad and we don't want to. What can we do to live by ourselves?

      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 seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
      While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
      We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by forum to assist you. 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).

      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 should feel loved and supported at home and it's worrisome to hear that you are feeling so isolated and that there are so many negative things being said.

      You mentioned that your mom has routinely punched and beaten you and it raises a great deal of concern for your safety and well being. 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. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. 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.

      You also touched upon feeling like you want to kill yourself, we care a lot about your safety, and we can help you find resources that can help you cope with these feelings. You do not have to face this alone, and there is so much help out there for you. If you are thinking about hurting yourself, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline could be a good resource for you. You can check them out at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/, or you can call 1-800-273-8255 for help and support any time.

You can contact them by calling 1-800-950-NAMI or you can text them by sending NAMI to 741741.

  • I'm 13. I hate my family. I want a family divorce.

    It's not the WORST situation. But I've considered running away so at many points of my life since I was 8. It started to be ALOT worse about 3 years ago. Christmas day, we was eating dinner and my step-father decided to have a go at me. For NO REASON AT ALL. He threw a chair at me when I argued back. I hold back as many things i think in my head. He terrify me so much. Only recently ive started standing up for my self a bit. When we have arguments sometimes he starts to get abusive. Pushing me around by my head. I was at the end of my bed one time whilst he was arguing with me. He came over and kept hitting me around the head. And bent me over the beds head board at the end of the bed and could have seriously damaged my back. He has major anger issues. He blames it all on "anxiety and depression" He always thinks he's right. A few weeks ago we was in another Argument and I was in school uniform. I decided to walk off and he grabbed the back of my collar and hurt my neck( basically strangled me) and hurt my shoulder. I pushed him off of me and threw a bag at him. I have had enough of it. My mum was there and she did NOTHING. That day I went to school crying and had a bit of a bruise on my shoulder. People where starting to catch on with what happened. I had a teacher come up to me and ask if I want to talk about it. But I am too scared. I spend hours in my room on end. I am too scared to go out my room. He always puts me down.
    I am always told i am lying by both my parents. They dont trust a word I say. And blame everything on me. I dont know my real dad. So I feel like i have no one to talk to. They both call me a spoilt bratt. The only people i feel that love me are my grandparents. People are rude to me at school because I dont talk. When I get test results back that are good they don't even react exept my grandparents. What do I do? I am too scared to do anything. I dont want to be with these people. I hate them!

      Hey there! Thanks for reaching out to NRS. We know that it can take a lot of courage to reach out for support, and we're glad you took that step. It definitely sounds like things at home have been tough for you, and we're sorry to hear that. No matter what, you don't deserve to be abused.

      You mentioned that a teacher wanted to talk with you about the abuse, but that you were too scared. That's understandable. Opening up and telling someone about the most personal details of your life can definitely be scary, especially when you're unsure of what comes next. The good news is, you've started that process today by reaching out to us. Please know that there are safe people you can talk to about what's going on, and your teacher might be a good place to start. Currently, our database here at NRS is geared toward youth located in the US. This means that all of our resources and our general knowledge base does not extend to the UK, so our understanding of exactly how things work in your area is nil. That said, Child Helpline International (www.childhelplineinternational.org) might be a helpful resource for you to find an org that does. If you go to their website and click "Find a Child Helpline" right at the top, you'll be able to search for your area and resources there.

      We hope that you find the above information helpful and know that there is support out there for you, whenever you're ready for it.

      Take care.

      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 difficult time and we want you to know that you are not alone.

      We know you mentioned running away or killing yourself, and we appreciate you opening up about those feelings. We want you to know that it takes courage to push through and that you are important and worth living. There is always someone willing to listen and provide support. If you are feeling suicidal or just need someone to talk to please call The National Suicide Prevention Hotline at: 1800-273-8255.
      You also do not deserve to be called names and we are sorry you are going through that. People usually call others names when they have their own insecurities to make themselves feel better. You may want to consider speaking with a school counselor about what has been going on at home. They may be able to provide support and resources.

      Also we know that you mentioned wanting to run away. We are not legal experts but we do have some information on the laws. If you were to leave without permission it is a possibility that you could be brought back home.

      We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options, please give us a call. We are available 24/7 to listen and provide support. We wish you the best of luck!

      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. If you ever need assistance calling out to CPS to make an abuse or neglect report please call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
      You also mention wanting to leave home. 18 years old is generally the age that an individual may leave home without permission from their parent or legal guardian. If you are under 18 and leave home without permission, your parent/guardian may file a runaway report with the police. Actions the police take once you are filed as a runaway can vary a lot from state to state and even city to city so we cannot predict exactly what would happen in your case. Generally speaking, if you encounter a police officer while reported as a runaway, you will likely be returned home, unless there is an active abuse report on file like the one we talk about above. Another thing to consider is that while running away is not a crime, a legal adult who allows you to stay with them may be putting themselves at risk for being charged with harboring a runaway. One way to find out the laws in your area is to call your local police and ask what their policies are regarding runaway youth.
      We hope you found this helpful. You were brave to have reached out, and we are hopeful that you will find some rest from this stressful and harmful situation soon. If you need further assistance, please reach out to us at 1-800-RUN-AWAY. We are always available.
      Sincerely,
      NRS

      Hi there!
      First of all, thank you so much for reaching out to us. We know it can be very difficult to reach out and it takes a lot of courage. This situation sounds very isolating and we hope we can help. It is unfair that your family is making your feel badly and you are in a toxic situation.

      It sounds like you have thought about killing yourself before. Our main priority at NRS is that you are safe. A good resource to reach out to discuss how you’re feeling is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. They are available 24/7 at 800-273-8255.

      It also sounds like you are looking for somewhere to live. Once you are 18, you are legally not under your parent’s custody any longer in most states. One option for somewhere to live is a Transition Living Program which is a temporary place that can house people and help them become independent. If you do decide to run away before you turn 18, this is not illegal. However, if you do go somewhere without telling your parents, they may decide to file a police report saying that you have run away. If that happens, the police may try to find you and bring you back home. The chances of this happening usually depend on your age. When a youth is closer to the age of 18, the police is less likely to look for you. However, we cannot say for certainty what would happen if they filed a report.

      Lastly, if you want to discuss the situation and your options more in depth or further discuss anything mentioned above such as Transitional Living Programs in your area, you are more than welcome to reach out to us through live chat at 1800runaway.org or phone at 1-800-RUNAWAY. Both of these services are available 24/7 and we would be happy to help you out in any way we can.

      Best of luck and stay strong,
      NRS

  • so, my problems aren't as bad as others but im 13 and feel like i should just kill myself or run away. i have a mum thats been doing drugs for god knows how long and my mum and dad are divorced (im pretty sure), my dad doesnt get in contact with me and if he does its when he wants so he never really replies to me and i just gave up with him. i currently live with my nan and grandad, my mum does live with us but she just goes in and out when she feels like it and talks to herself bla bla.. my grandad just either sits on the computer all day long, watches tv or is in bed. my nan basically does everything for us and i feel really bad, sometimes i even treat her bad and not my grandad or mum. im always upstairs in my room either playing on my pc, watching tv, sleeping or on my phone as others probably would. anyways, since coronavirus i have got so many conditions and would really want to do to a doctor to see if i do, yes i have kind of self diagnosed but thats because nobody would want to take me, ive also changed (like most of us) but into somebody i really didnt want to be. i really hate school and could kill myself over it, ive been begging to be home-schooled for months but nobody is listening to me and they just say "no" i ask why and they are like "because i said no". i know i most probably sound like those brats begging but i have so many reasons and i even wrote a "letter" why but they didnt bother reading it. however, all my grandad cares about is me just doing work and if i didnt do it he would shout at me (i probably get why) but still, and if i try have a nap in the afternoon my nan shouts at me to get up. as i have played on the PC for some years, i have been attached to it and most of my feelings go towards that. i dont care about the real world and would just love to stay on the "online world". it probably dont make sense, and im sure there are many others that feel that way aswell- 2021 has been a real bad start, ive been crying even longer (then what i normally would) and depressed and all that and one of my real good friends just left me for developing (online of course) and thats really broke me for some reason. i cant be bothered saying all my other problems right now, and i would just like to keep them with me. i have also been thinking about moving so i can be home-schooled, if i was home-schooled i wold be so much happier, its the teachers and people that bring me down i cant even keep up with the class and i dont know what im doing / cant focus. but yeah-

      Hi there!
      First of all, thank you so much for reaching out to us today. We know reaching out can take a lot of courage in any situation, and it sounds like you are in a really tough one.

      We’re sorry to hear that your mom is using drugs and your grandad is not so attentive. It is good to hear that you have people to live with, but understandable that you are struggling. You do not need to diminish your issues if you feel like others are worse, you are entitled to feel the way you feel no matter what.

      It terms of feeling like killing yourself, your safety is our greatest priority. If you are ever feeling in danger, a great resource to call is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. There are available 24/7 and experts in how you are feeling, you can reach them at 800-273-8255.

      It sounds like school has been really difficult for you. Wanting to be homeschooled is really understandable in this situation. One thing you could do is try to reach out to your teachers that you feel comfortable with and explain your situation and ask for some lenience or extensions. Your guidance counselor may be able to help you discuss both how your feeling and some ways you can be helped in school.

      In terms of running away, if you do go somewhere without telling your parents and grandparents, they may decide to file a police report saying that you have run away. If that happens, the police may try to find you and bring you back home. The chances of this happening usually depend on your age. When a youth is closer to the age of 18, the police is less likely to look for you. However, we cannot say for certainty what would happen if they filed a report.

      Lastly, if you want to discuss the situation and your options more in depth or further discuss anything mentioned above, you are more than welcome to reach out to us through live chat at 1800runaway.org or phone at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

  • Hello I’m don’t know what to do anymore with my family that is because it’s not like they physically abuse me or anything but everything they do messes with my mind. Like recently, because I don’t talk to them at all, my mum and dad decided to take away the wifi which might not sound like a big deal but one of the only reason I feel safe in my home is because of my phone. I can reach out to my friends, therapist or my school. Because of this I was realising that they were isolating me a lot so I was considering to go to school but not come back. To run away would make me feel less anxious but I’m not sure after I had done it I would be able to handle it well so I am worried when I’m not thinking I will put myself in a position that would be very damaging mentally for me. I have had a lot of thought of suicide and I self harm already this is mainly all because of me being transgender. I could really use some help I know it does sound as harsh as other people’s situation but I’m at a loss.

      Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like things at home and family dynamics are really stressing you out. Especially with everything going on, losing wifi can definitely be crippling. With young people really isolated because of online school and the quarantine, it has been difficult for students’ mental health. Running away is an option, but it may not resolve the issues that you’re facing. That being said, we would be happy to talk about what options you may have including running away.

      It may be helpful to reach out to some LGBT resources to seek guidance on issues regarding gender. The Trevor Project and the LGBT National Hotline are great organizations that might be able to provide you with some guidance specific to your gender identity. The Trevor Project is reachable at (866) 488-7386 and the LGBT National Hotline is reachable at (88 843-4564.


      What you are going through is a ton and it makes sense for you to feel overwhelmed by it and to want to get away from it all. If you want to talk more in depth about what is going on and what you can do, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on the phone at 1-800-786-2929 or chat with us at 1800runaway.org.

      Take care,
      NRS

      Hi there,
      Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline, it seems like you are going through a lot with your parents and have become frustrated by their constant yelling and verbal abuse. You don’t deserve to take blame for things when you aren’t the one doing bad things. It is understandable to want the situation to change in some way and get more support or a more comfortable place to live.
      One option to explore would be reporting your parents for Emotional Abuse, however this can be harder to prove. Often child services will take smaller steps initially if they take any at all, such as family counseling or anger management classes. Being removed from the home is still possible. 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. 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.
      Be safe,
      NRS

      Thank you for contacting NRS,
      We appreciate your bravery in reaching out. It seems like your dad is making you feel unappreciated. It can be difficult to live with someone who constantly yells at you and doesnt like feedback. It seems like you have a good support from your mom on the other hand. Some options that might be good to do are to maybe speak with your mom about the situation. As she knows the situation the best she can mayb come up with good options for you all to try. You could even try to get her to talk or talk together about it. We here at NRS also have a conference calling option where you can speak with your family about how you feel. Another option that might be good is to see if maybe your mom and ddad would want to try family counseling. It might help express everyones feelings and what they are struggling with.
      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.
      Be safe and stay strong,
      NRS
