    RE: idk anymore

    Hello there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. From what you shared, it sounds like you feel your mom is treating you different from your brother. It seems you feel that you would like more support from your family, is that correct? Family relationships can be difficult to establish and work through at times. Communication tends to be a challenge for many families. We are wondering how your communication style is with your parents. Are they aware of how you feel when they treat you a certain way? It seems that home life is stressful to the degree that you want to leave. However, it sounds like you are trying to reach out for help to identify what you can do to ensure that your safety and well-being are priority which is great. We want to help make sure whatever you choose to do is a decision you feel is best for you.

    Some important things to consider before deciding to leave are:

    Do I have a place to stay?
    What about school? Would I continue to get an education?
    Am I going to be gone awhile or coming back in a few days?
    What would I do for money? Shelter? Food? Transportation?
    Who can I depend on if I leave home?
    Do I have a safe, solid plan?
    What is my plan b in case my first plan doesn’t work?
    What have I done to make things better at home?
    What can I do to make things better at home?
    Who have I reached out to make things better at home?

    If you would like to talk more about what is going on and explore some options as well as resources available to you, please consider calling in to our 24 hour crisis line at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We also have a live chat service that can be accessed through our website www.1800runaway.org.

    We look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best.

    Take care,

    NRS

        RE: idk anymore

        Hey again,

        Thanks for being able to reach out to us again, it sounds like you are going through such a tough time. From what you shared, it sounds like the lines of communication are a bit off, we are sorry you feel like you can't speak up. So, one of our services can help you open up those lines.

        We have a conference calling service here, where you would be able to give us a call and we would be able to mediate a conversation between you and your mother. It can seem like a scary thing to do at first, but sometimes being able to talk to someone and having support there while doing it can help better your situation. Another thing that you may be able to consider is writing a letter to your family and letting them know how you are truly feeling. Sometimes by writing a letter you would be able to truly let your mother know how you are feeling and you would be able to give her some space to take in what was said.

        If you would like to talk further about what you would want to do or if you would want to go through with the conference calling service, please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We also have a live chat service that is available from 4:30 PM to 11:30 PM CST.We wish you the best of luck in whatever it is you decide to do and hope to hear from you soon.

        Stay strong,

        NRS

            Re: mentally abused

            Hello there,

            We're very sorry to hear you aren't being treated fairly and it sounds like there might even be some mental abuse. You don't deserve to be mistreated even if you are 17. https://www.childhelp.org/hotline/ is a resource that you might find helpful in coping with what's going on right now. As far as whether you can move out or not, there tends to be a few different factors. We aren't legal experts; however, most cities/states recognize you as a runaway if you leave home without permission. Some states do offer emancipation if you feel you can support yourself, but that can take time as well and is not always granted. We'd be happy to continue talking about your situation in more detail and please know we can be reached directly either through Live Chat or by calling our crisisline. If you plan on sticking to the bulletin boards for now and we know your city/state we can provide more information on emancipation and resources such as legal aid. Best of luck!

                RE: running away in kentucky

                Hello,

                Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline and sharing with us some of what has been going on. We are glad that you are reaching out and it sounds like home is not where you want to be. It must be hard to live in a home with that many people. We understand that leaving home is something that you want to do. Unfortunately, as you already mentioned, we are not here to give advice or tell you what to do. You are the only one that knows your situation best and that can make the decision to leave. If you want to call us on our hotline or chat with us on our website about your situation in more detail we can go over ways to stay safe if you were to leave and possibly options for you. We are sorry that we could not give you the response that you want. That is not what we are here to do. We wish you the best of luck and we look forward to hearing from you on our hotline or chat.
