      Hi there,
      Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We are so sorry to hear about this incident at home, and hope that we can support you through this.
      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 got really heated between you and Dad, and you were physically harmed. 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 or 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. We know that Grandma was there during this incident and now knows what is happening. Telling more people can help you get the support you need. Outside of abuse reporting, sometimes family intervention can help, or intervention from friends’ parents or other trusted adults. You should not have to carry the weight of this incident on your own. Keep in mind, too, that some people in your life, like a school counselor, are mandated to report.
      Again, we are deeply sorry you had to go through this. It must have been scary, hurtful, and uncomfortable. You do not have to go through it again. If you need help, we encourage you to call us at 1-800-RUN-AWAY.
      Sincerely,
      NRS

      Hello and thank you so much for reaching out to NRS through our forum-it takes a lot of courage to do so, especially when this is a very difficult and distressing time for you. First and foremost, you most absolutely do not deserve to be treated in this way by anyone and that includes your father. You deserve to be treated with respect and dignity by your family and anyone else for that matter. Your home should be a safe space for you, where you can openly communicate with those around you and feel at ease.

      With that in mind, it could be helpful to reach out to trusted family members and or friends in order to open up to them about what is going on at home and how your father is treating you. This may then allow you to leave home and stay with someone who will take you in and provide a safe place for you to stay. You should not have to deal with this physical, and not to mention mental, abuse every day to the point of considering to take your own life. Another option would be to contact the child abuse hotline at 1(800)422-4453 or www.childhelp.org in order to speak with someone outside of your circle of family and friends about the situation at home as well as possibly report your father for abusing you. You can also talk more in depth about resources for protecting yourself against further abuse, and even go to the police and make a report on your father as a means to put an end to this awful treatment.

      If you should have any further questions about anything mentioned above or would like to talk more about what is going on at home or anything else, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly at 1(800)-RUNAWAY or 1(800) 786-2929. We are here to listen and to help to the best of our ability 24/7.

    the other day i sat down at my brothers computer and it wasn't even on and i just moved around the mouse and he started being really annoying so i pushed him lightly and he punched my head into the wall right behind me and there was the backside of a nail sticking out of the wall and he slammed my head against that, and then i got up quickly and he started running and my dada sprinted in as fast as he could and grabbed me very tightly and had me in a chokehold but wasn't choking me and then i started to kind of try to push his hands off of me and he put his arm around my neck really really tightly and i was already tired and needed oxygen badly and he choked me for about 5-10 seconds and then he choked me so hard i started to bleed from the mouth and i started to spit blood on the carpet and then he loosened off a little and i managed to get up and in a corner and he sat there screaming in my face and punching me straight in the chest and he was raging with anger and then i sprinted outside in the freezing cold and i was barefoot and i was just running on the sharp gravel with stickers because i did not want him to come after me.
