    Hello, thank you so much for the reaching out! We appreciate you seeking help during this difficult time, and we’re here to assist you in any way that we can.

    To begin with, you mentioned that your guardians hit you sometimes. You’re really brave for coming forward and talking about the abuse that has been occurring on at home, and we want you to know that no one should have to go through that alone. An option to explore would be to think about filing an abuse report. If that is something you wish to do, you may reach out to the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800 422-4453. The hotline might give you more information about filing a report in your situation, and if you choose to do so, we can help you file that report. Please give us call at (1-800) 786-2929.

    Furthermore, you also stated that they name call you, and say some pretty harsh words. You’re so strong for undergoing that type of verbal abuse every day. If you at some point feel unsafe, you may explore the option about talking to a school counselor on what your family has been saying to you, and how may possibly seek some change. You may also try to talk to someone else in your family that you feel could be of help and feel comfortable with opening up about the difficult words your family has been mentioning.

    Again, thank you so much for reaching out. We understand that you’re going through such a tough time, and you need any additional help, please call us at our 24/7 hotline at (1-800) 786-2929. Best of luck!

    Sincerely,
    NRS

    My parents both dont let me do things. They lock me up in my house and take away my privelages for no good reason. My mother always tells me mean things and how she wishes she didn't have me and that I'll never be anything good. She constantly brings up bad things on me in front of my father so that all he thinks is the negatives on me. One time my mother didn't allow me to go to school and locked me in my room and lied and said I was sick. My dad has also been abusive. He always hits me and I always end up getting bruises and the hits are so bad that I cant breathe properly. When I tell him I cant breathe he tells me to shut up and continues to hit me. The next day I find myself covered in bruises all over my body (Mostly arms and legs). He also recently choked me and my mother told him to 'keep going'.

    Hello there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It seems like you are going through a rough time right now. We want you to know that we are here to listen and to help you in the best way we can. It sounds like you have been through a lot with your father lately and we are glad that you are exploring your options by reaching out for help.

    We are so sorry that you have had to experience this kind of stress at home. Home should be a place where you feel comfortable and safe. You deserve to be cared for and not put in situations that make you feel threatened. We aren’t legal experts, but generally speaking from what you’ve described, some states would consider this abuse. You are very brave for telling us you and we want you to know that you are not alone.

    If at any point you feel unsafe, you can always call 911. There is a hotline called Child Help USA that might be able to tell you your options and go over abuse reporting if that is something that you are comfortable with. Their phone number is 1-800-422-4453.

    We also would like to recommend that you speak to someone regarding what you are going through and get the support that you deserve. A good resources can be a counselor/social worker or teacher are typically mandated reporters, which means that if you disclose any abuse to them, they would be mandated to file an abuse report.
    No one deserves to live in an unsafe environment and we are sorry that you are experiencing this right now. Always remember your safety is important and you matter. We are glad that you took the time to reach out to us to see what you can do to help your situation. We will always be here to listen and help in the best way we can.

    Yesterday my dad got really angry and he smacked my face several times because I did not reply to his question. (He said I was not taking his questions seriously.) Even after smacking me he got even angrier as I did not reply him by that I was already frozen into place. My dad choked me while his other hand held a fist clenched tightly. After a few seconds of choking he lets go and asks me to wash my face. (The one who saved me from a punch and choking was my mum) When I went into the toilet I was traumatized as ******** I cried non stop and my mouth was constantly salivating over nothing. After I had washed my face nothing changed. I quickly went back to my room. At this point, I'm still salivating and making strange breathing and weird noises while crying non-stop. I went to sleep afterwards crying non-stop.

    Hi,
    Thank you for contacting us at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are in a very scary and dangerous situation at home. What you are experiencing is usually considered abuse. It doesn’t matter that your dad isn’t drinking, and it doesn’t matter how much money someone has; hitting, kicking, grabbing, any sort of harmful physical contact is considered abuse, though we are not legal experts here. We hope you realize that you do not deserve to be treated this way; no one does. Whether you are introverted or extroverted you deserve to feel loved and safe in your own home. We believe that you are really brave to reach out for help…it takes a lot of courage to share your story.
    It’s important to us that you are able to keep yourself safe. You say that you have told your friend about you dad. You could consider talking with a teacher or other adult you trust. They might be able to help you find resources in your community that might help you stay safe. You can always call 911, if you feel threatened.
    You could also call Child Help (National Child Abuse Hotline). They are available to talk about your situation and help you find the best want to handle what’s going on at home. Their number is 1-800-422-4453, and their website is www.childhelp.org.
    You say that the abuse by you dad has gotten worse since you came out to your family. Again, you deserve to feel accepted for exactly who you are. If you want to talk about your coming out experience or how you’re feeling, you can contact the LGBT National Youth Talkline at 1-800-246-7743. They can be very helpful and supportive.
    You talk about killing yourself. This is concerning to us, and we hope you can see that things will get better. You can reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. They are available to talk with you about how you are feeling and help you find a way through your troubles. Their number is 1-800-273-8255, and their website is www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org. You can call them anytime. They are always available.
    You can also call us at the NRS. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We can talk with you about ways to stay safe and ways to take care of your mental health; this is important as you are surviving a lot at home. We can also help you file an abuse report, if you decide this is what you want to do. We are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week, and we hope to hear from you soon.
    Stay safe and take care.

    i can be rude once in a while, mostly because i prefer to be left alone. i’m introverted, even though the rest of my family wants me to be extroverted. ever since i came out to my family, things have been different with us all. my dad, who hasn’t really hit me since i was ten, now kicks me, grabs my hair, and chokes me. i am so scared. i told my close friend a few weeks ago about him kicking me and dragging me through the house by my hair, but she advised me not to report anything, because i might be separated from my little sister. last night, my father hit my head, and i asked him why he hit my head and i asked him to stop. he told me no. i said “why do you think you can hit me” and he said “because i can”. then, he grabbed my hair and we started fighting. i kept screaming “you want to die **********? i’ll kill you!” because i was scared. he put me in a chokehold. he ripped my shirt off, and i was naked. i’m a thirteen year old female. i’m afraid to report him because i cannot be separated from my best friend and my sister. i don’t know if this is abuse. my dad doesn’t drink much, but he does have PTSD from 911. my father manipulates my mother, so she can’t help me. if her opinion is ever different from my fathers, about ANYHING, he always finds away to change her mind. he tries to hit her too. my mother doesn’t even stand up for herself. we live in an amazing neighborhood, we are upper middle class, we have some money, so i don’t think that this is abuse. please tell me what i can do. if i report him, he will murder me. he owns guns, a bayonet, a bow and arrow, he will be violent. help. i don’t know if i should kill myself or run away or just sit here and let it happen. i’m afraid if i die he will hurt my little sister.

It makes sense that you feel hurt by the situation; it's not right that your dad treated you this way and his behavior was in no way acceptable. Absolutely no one deserves to be abused.
