      Thank you for reaching out to us. We’re so sorry to hear that the situation with your parents separating and with you mom has been so difficult.
      You mentioned running away as an option you might consider. Running away is not illegal, it is considered a status offense (similar to a traffic violation). If a youth leaves home without legal guardian consent, the legal guardian has the right to file a runaway report. Generally, if the police do find you, they will return you to your home. Running away from home can be hard in many cases. It might be helpful to think about where you might stay, how you will get food food and other living expenses.
      We are sorry to hear that you feel you don’t have anyone to talk to, you deserve to have people around you that understand where you’re coming from, you may want to see if there’s someone at your school, such as a counselor or a family friend that you can speak openly with. You also mentioned that you self-harm and you may want to check out https://twloha.com/ for help with self-harm resources.
      We would love to support you in any way we can and you can contact us at our 24-hour confidential hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY(786-2929) and we can listen to you, explore your options and provide any resources.

        • Hi I'm 11 and ive been trying to cope with bullying. not at school but at home. My mom fully knows about this and ends up screaming at me about her not getting anything from us or something like that. The bully is not my mom but my sisters. im a triplet and my sisters of course are the same age as me. But they are taller and stronger. That means they can hurt me to get something, to let out steam, or just use me as a punching bag. im sure im going crazy. ive heard my mom talking on the phone about me about me having anxiety. and im sure i have depression and maybe bi polar from my dad. I go 'on a fit' and cry in my room and suddenly stop and go numb. idk why i do this but it kinda scares me. I self harm but not cutting. i punch my self in the head or scratch my legs and face.. im rambling but the point is i was to run away and get out of here. please help me in any way.

            We are sorry to hear that you are being treated this way. You don’t deserve to be hurt in any way. It sounds all the stress is effecting you emotionally.

Talking to family members or friend, school counselors can be helpful in many situations. You can also contact SAMHSA at 1-877-726-4727 for counseling resources.
            If you are getting physically hurt by your sisters and your mom is not doing anything about it you have the option to file an abuse report and call Child Help USA at 1-800-422-4453. It seems like things are so overwhelming that you have been thinking about running away. Running away can be hard in many cases.

            Hi, and thanks so much for reaching out. It takes courage to share all that you did, and you’re going through a lot. We’re sorry to hear that you feel that no one cares, depressed and heart broken. No one deserves to feel that way, or to be treated the way you’re being treated, especially by their family.

            It sounds like your sister used to be supportive but is no longer. Do you have other people that you can reach out to, like the school counselor, a friend or a relative? It’s important to get help, so you can stay strong – and we will be happy to give you some counseling resources if you want, just call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY and we can look them up in your area.

            You also mentioned that you thought about taking your life… That’s pretty serious, and we want you to know that there’s always a chance that things can improve, that there’s always hope that love can grow around you – just like you want. If at any point things feel hard and those thoughts come to you, please call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255; they are there to help you through it.

            Don’t give up trying! We will be happy to find resources for you, so you can get help and get stronger and happier; we’re here 24/7 for you, so just call us when you have a chance… Take care!

        • Hi, I'm 12 years old. I love my mom, little brother, and dad! But the one thing I don't like is, my step dad. He always blames me for things I don't do:

          *Thinks I watch YouTube, but I do not (I'm not allowed to watch YouTube)
          *Thinks I was playing a shooter game in the car (Not allowed to play shooter games)
          *Thinks I downloaded a key logger on his computer
          *Thinks I hack computers on my free time

          He grounds me for like everything I'm blamed for! And like for weeks!!!
          He buys me things and gives me things like Apple Watch 1 and IPhone 6 and MacBook Pro but that's all passed down tto me after he used all of them. I don't like how he thinks that he can make me happy by buying things for me! Also, he makes my mom mad by saying I do things when she knows I didn't!

          So, I kinda just want my stepdad to leave! He doesn't belong here! I don't want to move houses because I love every parent of mine, just not that dirty rat step dad of mine!

          Thanks NRS!

          • Hi there,

            Thank you for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. We're sorry to hear about all that has been going on and can understand how frustrating it would be to feel like you're not be trusted or listened to. Do you feel like you can talk to your mom or other family member about your treatment and have them support and advocate for you? If not, we can help you have a conversation about your feelings about your step dad to your mom. It can be difficult to have a conversation with her if you're unsure of how she will react. Sometimes it can be helpful to have another adult around when you’re trying to talk to your mom so that they can stand up for you and try to keep the conversation calm and fair. That person could be a guidance counselor, other family member, or any other adult you trust. Here at NRS, we also offer a conference call service and can help you have that conversation with her. Our number is 1-800-786-2929. You can call us 24/7.

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