  • I feel so stuck here

    i’m 13. My parents abuse me sexually and physically. I can’t stand it. I told everyone I trusted, my grandparents, school counselor, friends, even the mental hospital I was admitted to last year for suicide attempt. Last week cps was called by an anonymous person. They didn’t do much except look around and leave. I hate this and want to run away, but I feel like I don’t have the right to. There is a large amount of obstacles in the way, but i’m Willing to try. Is this the right choice?

    It sounds like you have been in a really difficult, scary situation, and we want to make sure that you know that you do not deserve to be abused. We want to thank you for reaching out to us, we know that is not always an easy thing to do, but it shows that you are really working to find a better situation for yourself.

    It is amazing that you have been able to speak up about what is happening to you, and it must be frustrating and feel hopeless to not have anyone help you get out of this situation. If you are still looking for a way out of this abusive situation, you could call Child Help, the national child abuse hotline, and they might be able to talk to you about more options since reporting the abuse did not work for you. You could also look into Justice for Children, an organization that helps kids who CPS did not help get out of abusive situations. If those options do not work, feel free to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us through our website and we would be happy to brainstorm more options or tell you more information about running away or getting shelters.

    Again, it is admirable that you have talked to so many people about what is happening to you, it shows that you are really looking out for yourself, which is very important. You seem like a very strong person, and very determined.

    Best of Luck,

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
