  • I am only 13 and I hate my family life.

    This is a hard thing for me to talk about. I grew up as a happy child and thought life was perfect but that all changed sometime in September of 2016. My dad had gotten into a car crash and he was fine but then things took a turn for the worse. On October 7th 2016 my dad commited suicide and ever since then things have only gotten worse. My mom asked after three months of my dad's death if she could date again and of course I told her it was okay. That was the biggest mistake of my life. She has been hooked on her phone and won't listen to me anymore.I try to tell her something important and she brushes it off like nothing ever happened. A few months have passed now and things are only getting worse. She brings guys over and lies to me about where she is going. The one thing I want to do is run away and live with my uncle but I know if I do that it will make things worse. I don't know what to do anymore.

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at National Runaway Safeline. We understand that it takes courage to see help. We are very sorry to hear that your dad committed suicide. It sounds like you have been having problems with your mom. You mentioned that you want to runaway. 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. Running away is not illegal but if you decide to stay with someone without your mom's permission they could get charged with harboring a runaway. You could try asking your mom if she would allow you to stay with your uncle. We are here to listen and help in the best way that we can. Please feel free to contact us directly via our 24 hour crisis hotline (1-800-786-2929), email, or live chat.
