    Hi,
    Thanks for reaching out. We will respond with the same thing for both of your posts.
    It sounds like things are really stressful for you at home with your mom being an emotional wreck and your brother saying awful things to you while pretending to be a baby around your mother. It sounds like you do have a group of friends at school, and we are glad to hear about that.
    You mentioned wanting to leave, which is understandable and we can talk about this, but we would want to have a conversation with you about this. Please reach out to our live services. You can call us at 1-800-786-2929 or you can chat us through this website. Both services are available 24/7 and we truly hope to hear from you soon so that we can help you determine what your options might be.
    Sincerely,
    NRS

    Ok so a while back, when I was 5 my mum and dad got divorced, so now I see my dad on Saturdays, and I live mostly with my mum and brother.
    A couple of times a month its ok. I love them we have a good time together...but the tide turns. My mum doesn't want me to grow up. The only social media I own is WhatsApp.
    when I got two behavior points at school for missed homework, my mom made me do it and beg the teacher who I hate to remove them. I still have a perfect record. She follows my every move on this app, and she sees what I'm on, how much time I've spent on it, and she went through this period of time where she'd scream at me if she ever caught me on my phone. At school, since I have this perfect record, and participate in things because I know my mum would be disappointed if I don't, I have been stamped as the nerd. There's a group of girls who hate me and are rude to me. The only place I currently enjoy being in is in the playground/canteen with my friends. My brother is 10 and fights me constantly, and comes into my room so I have to shout at him and then I get in trouble. He puts on a baby voice and runs to mum and she'll tell me off for 'something I did'
    it's like we're perfect for the cameras, but behind the curtain, we're just broken. I want to leave here.

    My dad left when I was about 5 and my brother was 3. Since then my mom has been an emotional wreck, and I can't really say how I feel without worrying i'll upset her. My brother is on her side and clingy and I can't be alone for any long amount of time at home. He also says mean stuff to me and we fight all the time. He then puts on his baby voice and goes crying to mum and I get in trouble for upsetting him. At school, people think I'm the 'nerdy' kid and the only place I currently feel at home is with my friendship group. I want to run away, but i feel like it would push mum over the edge.

    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 things with your Mom have escalated to a point that makes you uncomfortable. You are within your rights to report any abuse happening inside the home, www.childhelp.org is one resource when looking to report abuse, and we can also assist you in filling out an abuse report if you call or chat us. But whether or not you choose to report is up to you, and there are pros and cons in doing so. Maybe when you call or chat with us we can talk more about what those are.



    We are here as support through this challenging time and we can best help by having a conversation with you either by phone on our hotline or chatting us through our website. We truly hope to hear from you soon so that we can listen and help.


    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).
    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.


    Be safe,

    Hi there,
    Thanks so much for reaching out. It sounds like you’ve been through a great deal and we want you to know that you are not alone in this. Generally speaking, the legal age that a youth can leave home without their parent’s permission is 18. That means that, should you run away again, you would be returned home by the police if you were caught. Another thing to consider is that while running away is not a crime, any adult you stay with could be charged with the crime of harboring a runaway.
    If you need a safe place to go immediately, you might try visiting The National Safe Place website (www.nationalsafeplace.org). You can look up your city and state to see if there are any safe places near you listed. You can also text the word “safe” along with your current location (address, city, state) to 4HELP (44357). You will receive a message with the closest Safe Place site and phone number for the local youth agency. You can then reply to that text with “2chat” if you’d like to text interactively with a trained counselor.
    It might be helpful for us to know a little bit more about your situation so we can better assist you. You can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or chat with us via www.1800runaway.org. Our services are confidential and available 24/7. Please consider reaching out.
    All the best,
    NRS

    Hi there,
    Thanks so much for sharing a bit about your situation with us. It sounds like things have been very difficult with your grandmother recently. We’re sorry to hear that she’s treated you differently since you came out. It seems like you’ve really been trying to make her proud but that she hasn’t been receptive to any of your efforts. That sounds like it could be very hurtful.
    You mentioned that your father doesn’t visit as regularly as you’d like him to. One option you might consider is reaching out to him and talking to him about what’s going on. It’s possible that communicating that you’d like him to play a bigger role in your life might be helpful. You might also talk to him about some of the issues you’re having with your grandmother. You know your situation best, of course, and it’s up to you to decide whether you want to reach out to your father about this. You might also think about other people in your life that you could reach out to for support.
    You said that your mother has been involved in illegal activities like drug use. If you feel as though talking to somebody about what's going on with your mother might be helpful, Alateen is a group that organizes support meetings for teens who are affected by someone else’s alcohol or drug use. You can learn more about Alateen at www.alateen.org or by calling toll-free at 1-888-425-2666.
    You mentioned that your grandmother has pulled a knife out on you before, which raises some concerns for your safety. If you feel as though you’re in immediate danger, please do consider reaching out to emergency services or 911. Though we don’t know all the details of your situation, it’s possible that you might be able to report your grandmother for abuse. Though emotional abuse can be difficult to prove to Child Protective Services, if they decide to open an investigation, you may be removed from your grandmother’s care or be eligible for certain services. Reaching out to Child Help USA at 1-800-422-4453 or www.childhelp.org may help you to get a better understanding of what may happen before and after a report is made if that’s an option you want to pursue.
    If you feel as though talking to somebody about your experiences with your sexuality might be helpful, the Trevor Project might be a good place to start. You can reach them by calling 1-866-488-7386, texting “START” to 678678, or chatting via https://www.thetrevorproject.org. You deserve to be love and accepted for exactly who you are.
    If you’d like to talk more about different options you might have, please feel free to reach out to us as well. We are available by phone or by live chat at any hour. Give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or chat with us at www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button). We hope to hear from you soon.

    Stay safe,

    NRS

    Im 14 and I hate my grandma


    She always cuts me off when I am speaking and does not care what I have to say I have being living with her for 7-8 years.She always tries to find a way to put me down.She is also a little homophobic.She has been acting different towards me after I came out to her.Its not fair that she treats my cousin who is abt the same age as me like her granddaughter.I try to do things to make her proud of me but i end up f***ing it up.She says that she feels unapprieciated well she should try walking in my shoes.She once pulled a knife out on me before.I barely see my mom anymore because she is too busy doing drugs or other illegal s**t.My dad...he rarely comes by anymore but I was happy to see him the other day.When is my grandma is around her friends she acts totally different.I WISH THINGS WOULD CHANGE!!!

    Hi there,
    You mentioned that you might attempt suicide today. Your safety is our top priority. Your life has value. 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 Hotline might be a helpful resource for you. You can check them out at www.youmatter.suicidepreventionlifeline.org or you can call 1-800-273-8255 for help and support any time. You can also reach out to us by phone or by live chat if you’d like a place to talk about what’s going on. You do not have to face this alone.
    We’re sorry to hear that your mother’s been treating you so poorly. It sounds like you’ve been struggling for a very long time and it’s understandable that you feel frustrated and exhausted. You don’t deserve to be talked down to by anybody, least of all your own mother. It seems like it would be very upsetting to not be taken seriously even after attempting suicide before.
    We want to remind you that even though things may seem hopeless right now, this situation may not last forever. Suicide is a permanent solution to problems that may be temporary. It sounds like you’ve survived a lot already. We want you to know that we’re here for you and we believe in you. Your mother may not treat you with the respect you deserve, but there are many people out there who will who you have yet to meet.
    If you’d like to talk in more detail please reach out to us by chat or by phone. You can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or click on the “chat” button at www.1800runaway.org. We’re here to help 24/7. We truly hope to hear from you soon.
    Stay strong,
    NRS

    My mother insists on me being a whore. She has no basis to, and I've told her that I want to kill myself with everything she calls and says to me, but nothing changes. I don't see why I should be alive anymore. I've went to the gynaecologist and she still mocks me. I can't take it. I've put up with all of this for my entire life, and she acts like it's fine even after my suicide attempts. She acts like it doesn't matter. I think I'm finally going to kill myself today.
