    Hi, I am 20 years old my dad called me saying he wants to shoot himself. He has lots of guns so I was worried and went to his house. The situation escalated, so I decided to call the police. When he found out I called, he pushed me against the wall and choked me. He was drunk and high off Adderall. Now, he will not apologize to me or even admit what he has done. He says he moved me, which is very invalidating and makes it so hard to process what happened and heal. I dont know what to do, I think it has been too long to report it to the police (it happened in June 2021).

    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 you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now and you mentioned being harmed. Its important you know, you are not being extra, or overreacting in any way. The behavior you are describing is abusive and you do not deserve to be trated that way regardless of what others may try to justify it by.
    We’re sorry you’re going through this. 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 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. It may also be a good place to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.
    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. You are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. We recognize that being close to tuning 18 may weigh in on your decision to calling and reporting abuse. If you’d like to talk a bit more about this, please reach out to us.

    So it started off with a small argument with me asking to go running in the park. My father told me no because I already was outside 1 day prior to that. My father only lets me outside curtains days. 2-3 days a week. Sometimes less. I (17 year old) turning 18 soon argued back. From then it started to escalate. Next thing I knew he was telling me to die and jump off a bridge. And was telling me how He don’t need me. Then pushed me against the wall and continued screaming. I tired to move more away but he wouldn’t let me n would follow me yelling. I would yell back not backing down then he pushed me again into the wall this time to put his hand around my neck squeezing. I couldn’t breathe. I then tried to stay calm and waiting for him to release his hand. For him to continue screaming right when he let go he whispered under his breath “die”. Is it serious or am I being extra…. I noticed the more we argue the more physical he gets.

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to NRS today. We know it can be a scary thing to do and take a lot of courage. That must have been a really scary situation you went through with your dad.

    One thing to note is if you felt like this incident was abuse, you do have the right to report it. One way to do this is by reaching out to Child Help USA at 1-800-422-4453 or www.childhelp.org may help to get a better understanding of what may happen before and after a report is made. However, we can also help guide you through that process if you reach out over the phone at 1-800-796-2929 or through livechat at 1800runaway.org. Either way we are available 24/7.

    It sounds like this has never happened before with your dad. Another option could be talking to him about how you felt about the incident. One resource we have here at NRS is the conference calling service where you would reach out by phone at 1-800-786-2929 and we would have one of our liners mediate a conversation between the two of you. That way, you can share with him how you felt and we can help you navigate that.

    Lastly, we are here to talk through this situation with you in more depth and potentially help provide more resources. You are welcome to reach out to us through the phone or over livechat at 1800runaway.org 24/7. We are here for you.

    Best of luck and stay strong,
    NRS

    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.

    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.

    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
