    Re: how do i get my mom to be brave

    We’re glad you have contacted us at NRS. It sounds like you are in a tough situation and that you care a lot about you’re mom. You say your dad drives your mom insane, what exactly do you mean by this? What kinds of things does he do? Do you and/ or your mom feel in immediately danger? If it is a situation involving domestic violence, there is also the National Domestic Violence Hotline, 1-800-799-7233, which may be of help.

    You also stated that she is unemployed which sounds very stressful for both of you. You also said that she does not want to leave. What do you think is holding her back? What do you think would happen if she does leave? If she leaves, would you go with her? How do you think your dad will react?

    You asked how you can convince your mom that leaving your dad is the right thing to do and unfortunately we cannot answer that for you. That decision would be up to you. However, if you would like to discuss this situation further, we would be happy to talk about options with you at our hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY. We wish you the best of luck and hope things work out for you and your mom.

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