    Thank you for reaching out to us here at National Runaway Safeline. We are sorry to hear about your relationship with your mom. You don't deserve to be yelled at. It sounds like you are thinking about running away. Having a plan about where you would go and how you would take care of yourself is important. If you decide to runaway, your mom has the right to file a runaway report. With a runaway report, if the police find you they would return you home. Running away is not illegal but if you decide to stay with a friend, they could get in trouble for harboring a runaway.

    You could try asking your mom if she would allow you to stay with another family member or close friend. Child Help (1-800-422-4453) is a great resource to find out information on how to transfer custody. Another option that you have is contacting Child Protective Services if there is any abuse at home. You may also want to consider looking into emancipation laws for your state. We hope that this information helps, please feel free to contact us directly via our 24 hour crisis hotline (1-800-786-2929), email, or live chat, if you have any questions or just need to talk.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
