    I'm 12 years old and I have a severe case of depression and anxiety, along with and eating disorder and my dad is always grumpy and gets angry at the thought of me because he wants to go out and do things with his girlfriend but he cant because I'm too young to stay home alone. plus him and his girlfriend emotionally abuse me. I have no friends so I have nowhere to go. I moved away from all of my friends due to a custody battle. I can't live here anymore I hate saying this but.... I need help

      Hello,

      Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

      Some situations can be disappointing and even upsetting thus making things uncertain about what to do or where to turn.

I got in big trouble my mama don't tell me she loves me nobody does I get bullied bc I'm overweighted and ugly. It's sad I wish the world could be perfect. And everyone loved eachother

              Hi,

              It sounds like you are feeling like your parents don't want you around. We at NRS are here to listen if you need someone to talk to, but we are not here to tell you what you should do. Being 12 can be hard to run away and leave on your own. We want you to be safe, and if there is something you feel you need to vent or talk about you can call or chat with us.

              Take care,
              NRS

              Hello there, thanks for reaching out. Sounds like living with your grandpa and your mom is taking a really big toll on you, and if it was not for you grandma you would run away. You must really care for your grandma, and it is awesome that she is support for you. Here at NRS, we truly want to help.

              If you haven’t already, you might try to talk to your grandpa and/or your mom about how they are making you feel. You deserve to be supported and cared for. If your mom or grandpa are not hearing you when you try to express how you are feeling, you might see if your grandma could talk to them for you. She might be able to advocate for your needs to them as well.

              Here at NRS, we have a conference call service if you ever wanted to have a mediated conversation with your mom. That way you can have a safe space to convey to your mom how you are feeling without her interrupting. We also have a database full of counseling resources if you feel like family counseling services could help your relationship with your mom and grandpa. Please call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY for those resources.

              If you would like to talk through your situation, please d not hesitate to call or chat us. We are here to listen, here to help.

              Best,

              NRS

            Your not alone I'm 11 and I really want to run away soooooooooo bad the kids at school are bully's and make fun of me and it hurts me. I've almost cut myself and I have suicital thoughts all the time. I hear and see things. My parents "spank" me and they use fly swats and limbs. Half the time I dont do anything really bad that means to spank me. I think I have depression but my friends say that I can't have depression because I don't cut myself but they don't know me. My sister goes around telling lies about me and tells my secrets
            what do I do?

            I'm 11 and I want to run away.
            Ive been thinking about running away for a very long time. Lately I've been very depressed and All my friends are talking behind my back and everything like that. My parents don't understand what I'm going through and whenever I try to talk to them they don't listen. I've had days where my parents tell me that I'm fat and that I lost weight when I'm only 92 pounds which is pretty average for an 11 year old. I've had times where I wanted to kill my self. I want to run away but i don't know where to stay.

              Hello there! I'm a twelve year old gay transgender. I have very nice parents and everything,but their not the problem my siblings are and sometimes my dad,but I have 4 other siblings 3 sisters and 1 brother. one of my sisters is the problem,she is young but she has a mind like no other. we usually get into pointless fights,but then they end in her saying like she means it, "you should go kill yourself" and "I'll push you off a cliff,so you'll finally die" or "I hate you and I'll never show up to your funeral" Then right after she says that I go to my mother,who I must say is a very nice person and I tell her but then my siters just denies everything she says. I also have quite numb emotions,so I don't feel any emotions at all,like I don't feel hurt at all I just feel nothing except for fear. I have many phobias and a disorder,I am quite sleep deprived as well. I guess you can say I'm bipolar because I sometimes have on and off emotions like uncontrollable crying fits and laughter and feeling an emotions like anger but expressing it as sadness. I want to run away because I'm tired of life and feeling like my parents are in control of my life,because they make me do things I don't wanna do without my consent and stuff,but whenever I get upset they tell me, "Oh,I'm sorry I didn't mean it." yeah right. and now here's the hard part,I'm hesitant on running away because of my oldest sister. she has depression and I feel like running away might make it worse,she may be getting better but by running away may take a toll on her and she may think it's her fault and go back to cutting herself.

                Thank you so much for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you’ve been going through a lot and are frustrated with the situation with your sister and the lack of support from your parents. You’ve been trying to work through your illness while also staying emotionally available for others. It’s clear that you really love your friend and wanted to be there for them in their time of need.
                As for whether or not you should runaway, only you know what option is best for you. Each person has different best working solutions for their problems and what works for me may not work for you. If you do choose to runaway it’s important that you have a plan about where you’ll stay and how you’ll find food. We would love to help you sort out this plan and can provide you with a list of available shelters if you get in contact with us through our online chat or hotline. Our website is www.1800runaway.org and our number is 1 (800) 786 2929. It’s clear that you really care about your family and your sister especially and that you’re not totally sure running away is the best option. We can talk through your misgivings and come with other options if you’re interested.
                We could also potentially help facilitate communication between you and your parents through a conference call, if you feel comfortable with that. It sounds like you feel pretty alone right now, but if you want to reach out to us directly we can help discover a course of action best suited for you. Through our phone and chat services we can learn more about your life and circumstances and as such provide you with some more specific options. Our number is 1-800-786-2929 and our website is www.runaway.org. It takes a lot of courage to take the first and most difficult step of reaching out. Thank you so for contacting us and we wish you luck.

              I'm 12 and I am thinking about running away.



              I don't know what I should do. I am yelled at for no reason. My sibling is absolutely awful. He acts cute around my parents but he bullies me whenever they aren't around. My parents have openly admitted that he is their favorite child. I just want it to stop. The work, the screaming, the lies. I need it to stop. Someone says something and when I mention it again, they call me a liar. I need help. Please answer. Tell me what to do.

                Hello,
                Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline.

                Sometimes situations become overwhelming and it is hard to know just what to do about it.
                You don’t deserve to be bullied by anyone and you have the right to be upset.
                Sometimes talking things out with a third party like a counselor or therapist can help to resolve a situation.
                There are other options like writing down your feelings in a letter or note to your parents in an effort to let them know the situation. You might also consider contacting NRS about our mediation services over the phone.

                We understand that being mistreated has been a frustrating situation for you and you did a great job by reaching out to NRS.
                If you would like to speak more about your situation and options towards a solution contact us at 1-800-Runaway (786-29290 or www.1800Runaway.org

                  I'm 15 and I feel like I need to runaway. My depression has been getting really bad, as has my anorexia and self harm, my parents make all of my problems about themselves, and my mother will often refer to me as a stuck up little b**** or as an a******. My father tries to calm her down, but it doesn't always work. She's forced me to go on diets, ridiculed me for my weight and once pinned me to the floor and sat on me. I'm barley keeping everything together and I just can't stay w them anymore

                    Hello,
                    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

                    You don’t deserve to be mistreated by your mother or anyone.
                    It sounds like you have been dealing with some serious health issues on top of your mother’s abusive behavior. It’s most unfortunate that she treats you badly but please understand it is not your fault.
                    It seems that your father tries to help but it has not been enough for things to change and because of this you feel you can’t stay at home. Sometimes things become overwhelming, emotions run high and it’s hard to figure out your next move.
                    You have a right to your feelings and a right to want fairness.

                    When dealing with depression it sometimes might be helpful to talk to someone like a counselor or maybe a therapist. We understand that you are going through a difficult time and if you are interested in getting help here are a couple of referrals you might consider:

                      I'm twelve and want to runaway. My parents yell at me all the time and they call me horrible things that I'm not even going to say. When I try to tell people they're doing this to me they deny it and than later at home yell or insult me. They sometimes hit me but I've figured out when they are going to hit me so I can dodge. They said a criminal would make a better daughter than me and said everyone in the world are better people than me. I get bullied at school and suffer many severe mental illnesses. My parents won't let me move or live with anyone else so I'm going to runaway but I'm scared the police will find me and then things will be even worse.
