    My dad makes me feel unsafe and makes me want to die. My mom says to just ignore it but I cant. Today he yelled at me for something I didn't do and I thought he couldn't hear me so I said that I didn't do it and he thought that I was yelling at him. Now my parents dont abuse me or anything and my mom says that its his way of showing love because he had a tough life and lifestyle. I don't know what to do and its been getting a bit worse. Please o give me some advice.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for choosing to reach out and make this post, we are here to support you and try to help you as best we can. It sounds like it has been pretty overwhelming at home. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.

    What you describe could be considered experiencing emotional abuse which may be reportable against your parents. Please keep in mind you by no means deserve any type of abuse, emotional or otherwise. Unfortunately, emotional abuse is often harder to provide evidence for compared to physical abuse which is often what CPS relies on when conducting an abuse investigation. That said, we can’t be 100% sure what the outcome will be if your local CPS decides to open a case based on what you share. Sometimes CPS decides to remove minors from the home and other times they offer services such as family counseling or mediation instead. The only way to know the outcome might be to reach out to them directly and if you’re ready to do that we are here to help you through that process. Reaching out to Child Help USA at 1-800-422-4453 or www.childhelp.org may help to get a better understanding of what may happen before and after a report is made.

    Hi , I really didn’t know if I wanted to post this or not but then I realize that so many people are going thru what I’m going thru okay my parents have been treating me so different like I would get in trouble for small things like forgetting to do something . They always call me lazy even tho I’m the only one who cleans up in the house like my mom act so bipolar she’ll be nice one day then the next day she’s back to being mean . Another thing she do is she accused me of doing stuff I never did when I try to defend myself she would tell me to stfu or even she would smack me she never believe a word I say it gets really annoying. My parents loves my sister more like they make it so obvious sometimes they make me wanna kill myself

    Hey there,

    We are sorry to hear you are going through so much mental torment. Please know that it doesn't have to be like this and you absolutely can have a better life ahead of you. Of course, if you were to take your own life you would miss out on the better life that you absolutely can have, so please make sure you talk to someone if you feel suicidal in the future. Dial 911 if you are in immediate danger, or call 1-800-273-8255 (www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org). At the very least, we are glad you have contacted us and are expressing your feelings. Bottling everything up inside is never healthy. So you've taken a good step by reaching out to us. And, of course, we believe you.

    We'd like to see how we can help further but would need a bit more information from you to see how to do so. Please keep in mind we are a confidential hotline: we don't share anything you tell us with anyone else with the sole exception of having to report abuse if you give us the full name of an abuser. When you call, we can talk about your options: possibly being able to live somewhere else, maybe filing an abuse report, figuring out ways to be safe and happier in the meantime, and the like. Again: things can get better and you have already taken the first steps toward making that a reality. You can reach us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us via the chat portal at www.1800runaway.org. We're here for you 24/7.

    In the meantime, please be safe.

    I'm not sure if my parents are abusive or not, but because of them I've wanted to kill myself since I was 10. I'm 15 now and I feel like I'm ready. I'm tired of waiting for things to get better. I'm either killing myself or running away. I can't talk to anyone about this and I'm afraid of reaching out again to counselors or friends since they think I'm lying. I'm not sure what to do though. I just want to live a normal life. I'm tired of constantly being scared of my parents.

    Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We want you to know that it is abundantly clear to us that you are not a failure and that you deserve love and acceptance for who you are as a human being. It is not your fault that your parents and others are treating you so inappropriately and cruelly, and it makes sense that you want out of a situation like this and that you have taken extraordinary measures to cope with it. We cannot imagine how difficult it must be for you to exist in a space that is so hostile towards you, but we can imagine how strong you must be to make it from each day to the next.

    It might be a good idea to reach out to us over the phone or over chat. We would be happy to talk with you about what options you might have and how you might be able to deal with the experiences you are going through in a safe and effective manner. We can help you find legal advocacy, mental health support, short and long term shelter, and more. We care about you and we care about your wellbeing and we will do as much as we can to help you. Please contact us on the phone at 1-800-786-2929 or chat us at 1800runaway.org.

    Additionally, there are some LGBTQ hotlines that may be able to provide you with some more specific guidance regarding the difficulties others are giving you relating to your gender. One is the Trevor Project. They are especially helpful for those who are in moments of crisis and who may not feel safe. They are reachable at 866-488-7386. Another good hotline is the LGBT National Hotline. They have their own database of LGBT specific resources and advice that may be able help you figure out some more options. They are reachable on their hotline at 1-888-843-4564 and on their Youth Talkline at 888-246-7743.

    Hang in there and know that there are people who want you to succeed and be able to live a happy life.

    My parents are so controlling. They won’t let me express myself through what I do (makeup and art). They tell me to use my words but when I do they yell at me and tell me I’m “making things up”. They constantly try to force their religion and beliefs down my throat. As soon as they find out I’m non-binary and lesbian, they’ll probably kick me out or worse. I’m a ********ing failure and would be happier dead. They’re one of the reason I cut myself and try to kill myself (the others being bullies). I swear I’m going to relapse. They have cameras in the house and I feel paranoid. They don’t love me. They hate me. I’m a wreck and they despise me.

    Hey there,
    Thanks for reaching out to NRS it seems like you are feeling really down because of how your family treats you and that you are taken for granted. While some chores would be understandable, doing all the cleaning without being appreciated is a different story. Your dad shouldn’t be calling you derogatory names like that and it makes sense to feel frustrated by that situation.
    It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.

    My Family Makes Me Feel Like nothing I’m Useless They Always Use Me To Do Their Chores and I hate it, i feel like my dad just hates me like he always talks sh*t to me and makes me feel like I’m nothing, every time he comes in my room he always says it smells and says it dirty and I live like a pig and how grateful I should be for Him letting Me stay at home, but it ain’t a home to me it’s a prison, And I know I cleaned my room, vacuumed, folded all my laundry, feebreezed it and he still talk’s sh*t when his room smells like a dead body, I hate everything here, everytime he talks sh*t to me I just go in the bathroom and cry thinking that I should just die to make all the pain go away.

    Hey there,
    Thanks for reaching out, it seems like you are going through a lot and it makes sense to feel the way you do about this. It’s hard to love someone but also be afraid of their other side. Your parents shouldn’t be hitting you like that and yelling about such small things like some crumbs. It is understandably frustrating to feel like everything is OK and then turn around the next moment and things are downhill.
    It seems like you want to avoid child abuse reporting but if you do want more information about it childhelp.org is a good resource. You also mentioned feeling suicidal at times, if those thoughts escalate and you need help the suicidepreventionlifeline.org is there for you or you can call 911 for immediate help. You could also look at nami.org which focuses on mental health and see if there are some practices that might help you work through things.
    As for running away if you are not yet 18 most likely your parents would file a runaway report on you and have police bring you home. It is not a crime to run away but police can make you go home. Some places that might be safe to go to would be a friend, family member, or shelter. If you need somewhere to go nationalsafeplace.org can help you find a safe place nearby.
    Hopefully this information is helpful, we want you to know that we care about you and hope that things improve. One more option to consider may be family counseling. If you want our help finding resources like that in your area please call 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us online.
