    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

    Hey there. Thanks for contacting us here at NRS. We know that it can take a lot of courage to reach out for support, and we're glad you took that step. It's understandable that you'd want someone to talk to--it sounds like things have been pretty tough at home with your parents. No matter what, physical abuse is not okay, and we're sorry that it's happening to you.

    It sounds like you might be pretty banged up right now. If there's a safe way for you to document your injuries, like by taking a photo of them and writing down what happened, that might be a good idea. That way if Child Protective Services (CPS) gets involved and those injuries are no longer present, they'll still be able to see how you're being treated at home. If you're feeling pretty crummy and think you might need medical care right now, there are a couple of things that you can do--contact your local law enforcement agency (usually by calling 911) and let them know you need help. You can also reach out to us here at NRS, by phone or through our live chat, and we can contact them for you. Then, if you want, we'll keep talking to you until they arrive and you feel safe.

    If doing either of those things isn't an option for you or you don't feel like you need immediate attention, another option would be to file an abuse report with CPS. CPS is an agency that was created to ensure the safety of children. When a report is made, they usually start an investigation to see how they can best ensure the safety of the children who are in the home and affected by the abuse. In a case like yours, they'd likely respond very quickly. If this is something you'd like to do, you can go about it in a few different ways. You can contact them on your own, by Googling your state and Child Protective Services agency. Their website will tell you how to file a report. You can also let a teacher/school social worker or counselor know what's happening and they'll file a report on your behalf. Another way to file a report is by contacting us here at NRS. We can file a report with you or for you, or we can just hang out on the line and keep you company if you prefer to do it yourself.

    If you want to just talk more about what's going on or ask any other questions, we're here for that too. You can reach us by calling 1-800-RUNAWAY or by popping into one of our live chats at www.1800runaway.org. We're available 24/7 and are always happy to listen, and to help.

    Hang in there.

    Hello There,

    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time and we want you to know that you are not alone.

    What you have described sounds like it could be abuse, and we are sorry you had to deal with that. If you would like to make an abuse report, you do have that option and there are a few ways you can do that. One option to consider would be to contact Child Help: 1800-422-4453, and they would be able to help with filing an abuse report. You can also talk with a school counselor or a teacher and because they are mandated reporters they would be able to help with a report. You can also always contact us by phone or by chat and we can help with making a report.

    You could consider talking to your parents about how this interaction triggered you and how you wish it would be handled differently.

    We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options, please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. We wish you the best of luck!

    me and my dad got in an argument about my phone, it’s always a touchy subject but i started getting upset and i called my mom dumb for not knowing how to work the app. i was already triggered that i was trying to do my homework and they interrupted bit then out of nowhere (i guess he was protecting my mom) my dad came and dragged me out of my chair by the throat and started choking me, i’m not sure what to do cause i know what i did was wrong but i feel like that was unnecessary and now i can’t talk very well-

    Hi,
    Thanks for reaching out; we are glad that you did. It sounds like things are really stressful and confusing at home. Between your mom’s split personality and slapping your butt. It wasn’t clear whether she thinks this is spanking, or if she does it at random times, but it sounds like you didn’t deserve it either way. We can’t tell what her problem is, but it sounds like something is wrong there.
    And your dad’s hand over your nose and mouth so that you couldn’t breathe sounds abusive because what he did to you is not OK at all. It must have been really scary. You didn’t deserve that and he was wrong to do that to you. Pinning you to the wall is also not right, that sounds scary too.
    Do you have a teacher or school counselor or social worker you can reach out to? Or a family member that you trust? Or you can reach out to us by phone or live chat so that we can have a conversation with you about all of this. We truly hope to hear from you so that we can listen and help you find support.
    We are here 24/7 and all our services are confidential. 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) by phone, or this website for live chat. We hope to hear from you soon.
