    Hello there,
    Thanks for reaching out to us! We’re sorry to hear that you’re made to feel like a burden by your parents. That sounds like a difficult environment to navigate daily. Unfortunately you don’t have a ton of paths to independence at your age besides trying to get emancipated, which is a pretty long process and would require you to prove in court that you’re able to be financially independent as well. In most cases you would also need to get consent from your parents in order to do that. It’s awesome that you have a job and are planning on finishing school and it sounds like you have a good plan for your future. Have you ever considered reaching out to a therapist or a guidance counselor about your family dynamic? We would love to explore your home situation deeper with you in order to provide you with the best options. One service that we offer is a conference call with your parents where we can help mediate the call, if that’s something you might ever be interested in. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call anytime at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-292). Best of luck and we hope to hear from you soon!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
