  • I absolutely need to get out of my situation. Please help.

    My parents divorced when I was 7 and I stayed with my mom. After a few years my mom got into drugs and CPS got involved. I now live with my dad but after a few years my dad started abusing me mentally and physically. I've reported him many times but he completely denies abusing me. Recently I started talking to my mom's side of my family and they have offered a place for me to live. I'm constantly terrified of being home and I absolutely cannot live here anymore. I was planning on moving and dropping out of school when I turn 16 to live with my other family. Is it a good idea?
