  • Hello. I am a 12 year old girl that wants to run away. At the age of 9 I was blamed for something serious at school i didn’t have friends for years and it led me to self harm and depression. My parents made it even worse by constantly yelling at me. There’s people out there that have it worse than me and I know. My mom takes me on trips sometimes and I guess is ok towards me but sometimes she yells and hits me and it hurts a lot. I feel like self harming again sometimes and I don’t know if it’s a valid reason to run away. Help me, please.

      Hi,

      Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we commend you for your bravery. We hope we can help today.
      It sounds like you are experiencing severe neglect and emotional abuse at home. You do not deserve to be treated this way, and should not have to live in a home where you are starved and not provided for, nor should you have to endure being called names, being treated without dignity, and being forced to perform extensive physical labor. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You may also report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 (www.childhelp.org) is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation. If you ever need assistance calling out to CPS to make an abuse or neglect report please call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

      It takes a lot of strength to get through a day of treatment like this. It makes sense that sometimes you are exhausted and depressed and that you self-harm. There is help for you. Many people hurt themselves and have amazing recovery stories. The website twloha.com (To Write Love On Her Arms) is an amazing blog in which people share these stories. It can be a beacon of light for you in the darkest of times. If you are ever in danger of taking your own life, you can also always call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. It’s okay to feel the way you feel. We want you to be safe, and we encourage you to reach out to these numbers if you are feeling unable to keep yourself safe.

      You have taken a big step towards starting that new life you talked about. We hope that you find the above information useful, but if you do not, please reach out to us by phone (1800-RUNAWAY) or by instant message (1800runaway.org, click CHAT). We are here to listen here, to help.

      Stay safe and stay strong.

      Hi there,
      Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
      While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
      We are here as support to help through this challenging time. An option for finding help with dealing with the bullying you are going through is https://www.stopbullying.gov/resources/get-help-now We are also here to listen and help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by forum to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.

  • I don't know y they didn't aborted me or just left me in the streets. Im nothing but a mistake to God. I don't know y I'm living or being treated good. I already know that they want me dead...
    I'm nothing but a problem maker in my family. I'm the reason why dad left mom.
    I'm the reason why my dad doesn't have his restaurant.
    IM THE REASON why were not living the life we wanted.
    I nothing but a ********ty son....
    There's no point of living if I'm being like this and cause so many problems and so the only way to end this is to leave home and away from my family so they won't have any problems

      Hey there,

      Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It seems like there is a lot of change going on within your family and it must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension. We want you to know that everyone is responsible for their own actions and it's unfair to yourself to think that your dad's behavior and situations are your fault. Running away is a big decision and it can be very stressful to figure out what you want to do.

      You mentioned some things about thinking that there is no point of living, and it raises some concern for your safety and well-being. We care a lot about your safety, and we can help you find resources that can help you cope with these feelings. You do not have to face this alone, and there is so much help out there for you. If you are thinking about hurting yourself, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline could be a good resource for you. You can check them out at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/, or you can call 1-800-273-8255 for help and support any time.

      It seems like your family may not fully understand how the situation at home is affecting you. It could be a good idea to work with a local family counselor or have a conversation mediated by a school counselor/social worker, trusted friend, or family member to help clear the air. If you'd like, you can also call us directly and we can conduct a conference call with your family so you have a safe environment where you can express yourself.

      If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

      Your dad's threats and behavior is in no way acceptable. Absolutely no one deserves to be abused. If you are currently at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering. It may also be a good idea to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.

      You brought up that the situation at home has made you think about killing yourself before and it causes us great concern. We care a lot about your safety, and we can help you find resources that can help you cope with these feelings. You do not have to face this alone, and there is so much help out there for you. If you are thinking about hurting yourself, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline could be a good resource for you.

      Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are dealing with some intense stuff and we want to support you in whatever way we can. Depression and anxiety can be really rough to deal with, especially all on your own.

      While running away might seem like a straightforward way to deal with what is going on right now, it can be very dangerous and very difficult if you are not careful. It’s good that you have some money to be able to support yourself for a short time, but you may want to make sure you have a place to go before you leave. Being on the streets is the number one most dangerous place for a young person to be, and we want you to be as safe as possible. It could be worth it to reach out to some family or friends in order to talk about you maybe staying with them for some time. Additionally, we can also look for what shelters are in your area and see if there is somewhere you can go to be safe and comfortable.

      If you want to talk more about what is going on, what options you have, and how you can run away in a safe and effective manner if you need to, please give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 or chat with us at 1800runaway.org.

  • i am a 12 year old boy in granville ohio and my parents always beat me like hell and im depressed and anious all the time. one time my mom pinned me to the table, and started punching me in the face. by that time my hands and arms were so sore from other beatings that i couldn't move them, let alone block the hits. I told my freind and he told me that he would come with me. He chickened out at the last minute and told my parents. After that, i got a beating harder than any one before. I told my parents that i would call the police, so they got a knife and stabbed it until it broke. I tried suicude, but all it did was make me throw up. I want to run away

      Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It is terrible that your parents are treating you in such an abusive and inappropriate manner. There is no reason that or excuse for them to be physical with you. On top of struggling with your depression and anxiety on your own, it makes sense that you want to leave that kind of environment. We want you to know that we will support you in whatever way we can. If your parents are being physically threatening towards you to the point where you feel unsafe, we do recommend that you call the police.

      One option that you have could be filing an abuse report about the way your parents treat you. That is something that we can help you with if you want to call or chat with us. Or, you can reach out to the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-422-4453 or childhelp.org in order to learn more about the abuse reporting process and what the consequences could be.

      Another option would be leaving home. If you do choose to leave, it might be a good idea to reach out to us beforehand so that we can look for a safe place for you to go. The number one most dangerous place for a youth to be is out on the street and we want to avoid that if at all possible.

      If you want to talk more about what other options you might have and what resources you might have access to, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 or chat with us at 1800runaway.org.

      Take care,
      NRS

  • I’m only 12 and I want to run away cause my mom yells at me just for no reason and I want to leave but I don't like school too much work and my mom yells at me and I need to drop out but I want to be a football player and a multi-billionaire my mom treats me like crap and I just want to end life right here right now and my friend Parker I have to be friend him so if anyone gets this plz help me out.

  • I'm 13 and I want to get away. I feel like my parents are too overprotective, and won't let me do anything. They compare me with other girls, and tell me I can't do anything right. I know this is not a very severe problem but I just don't know. I want to get out, camp under the stars, and just have some alone time without my parents barging in and telling me what to do. I want to make a life for myself, fall in love, create a business, and not have to worry about my parents telling me to do what they want me to do. I used to tell my parents I'd run away, but my dad always thought I was bluffing. He told me to go, and said I'd never do it. When I was 10 I did. I went on my bike and rode down a small bike path. It started to get dark, and there were woods all over me. I was so scared. I didn't want to return home, but I had to because I packed nothing, and I was freezing. At home my parents were so mad at me. My dad slapped me in the face, and my mom stopped talking to me for a week. They took away my phone, ripped all the posters in my room, and totally demolished my room. I used to runaway for different reasons, but know I want to escape my parents. I don't know what to do, for fear of the consequences when I comes back home.

      You mentioned some things that raise concern for your safety and well-being. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. We are not experts on the issue, but generally once it's been reported, social services will either decide whether or not to take the case and further investigate. If they do take the case, they will send out someone from child protective services to do an investigation (interviewing people in the household) and from there they will decide the level of danger within the household. It generally ranges from no danger (the youth stays in the home, some services are given, and the case is closed), moderate danger (they will provide family services with possible temporary displacement) and high danger (they will remove the youth from the home and offer certain services).
      If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering.

  • hi im 12 and id really like to run away. though my situation isn't completley horrible i feel that my enviorment at home is kinda toxic. my mom go through some mood swings for example she one minute happy and joking and smiling then the next shes angry and a very bad energy is around her and i don't feel safe. my mom calls me stupid sometimes, hits me and my sister over small things and i feel scared. i have been wanting to run away since i was 10. i cry almost every day because of her. i go through extreme bullying and she pulled me out of therapy. i suffer from sever depression and tried to hurt myself multiple times and beats me for it and she feels like my depression isn't something serious. i cant go to my friends house because one of my only 2 friends has just cut me off completley and my only other friend doesn't take my situation seriously. i don't want to get in trouble with cps or get my mom in trouble but i just cant stay here with her it isn't safe. my mom and my grandmother are very manipulative and my father left me and i have no money. i have to wait until i start getting paid from my school and that's next year i cant hold out that long i cant take it anymore. i don't know what to do and i have no where to go but i just cant stay in this toxic enviorment.

  • Im 12 i want to run away

    i have angry issues and i tend to fight with my mom a lot but my dad is really supportive and is hurt when my mom yelling at me. I have a younger brother who is really sweet and always defends me when i fight with my mom. I get bullied at school but i cant tell anybody. everyone always says my life is perfect but i cry and cry i feel like i want to start a new life. so i want to run away. i love my mom but i wish she loved me to. she says shes loves me but is always yelling and screaming at me. i also tend to have really bad grades in school and i fail . im always compared to my brother for not acting or being like him and i dont think ill ever be as good as him but i wish my mom would love me like she did when i was younger. since im the oldest i have to be the example i have to have good grades and stop being "rude" she says. my mom takes my phone away a lot so i lost a couple close friends like my best friend cause i never answer her texts or talk to her. when i ask for things she always says not until you get good grades or care about school. if i run away or hurt myself will it get better?

  • Hi I'm 12 and I want to run away,

    I've have been thinking of running away since kindergarten because my family doesn't understand me. I have these problems that I can't control and instead of being understanding, they make me feel even worse than I already am. My friends don't understand me either. Whenever I tell them that I'm sad, they ignore me. The only friend I feel understands me is Addison. My family has ignored me, said mean things about me, and even more things. Before kindergarten I was fine, but now I feel like nobody understands me. They sometimes call me "stupid" and they make me cry EVERY SINGLE DAY. I felt like there was nobody I could talk to until I heard about NRS. When I am sad, my family makes me even more sad than I already am. Sometimes I feel invisible around them. I feel hated every day. I don't know what I should do NRS!
    Please Help me NRS,
    Gobwinelet

      Hi there,

      Thank you for taking the time to contact us here at NRS and we appreciate you sharing a bit about your situation. It sounds like you have not been getting the support that you need at home and it has been taking a toll on you. It can definitely be stressful and frustrating when you are not being heard. It is not okay for your family to call you names or talk down to you and you do not deserve to be treated that way.

      We want you to know that you are not alone in this and we are here for you 24/7. We can talk more in depth about your situation and explore your options including ways to get the support that you deserve. Because our digital services are different in that we can only respond twice, we are best able to help by phone at 1-800-786-2929 or through live chat at 1800runaway.org.

      We look forward to hearing from you soon,
      NRS

      Hello –

      Thank you for contacting us here at the National Runaway Safeline. We understand that it takes great courage to reach out. We are sorry to hear about your situation, no one deserves to be treated that way, especially by people who are supposed to be a support system for you.

      It is important to know that you have options and resources to help advocate for yourself. A great resource for you could be the National Child Abuse Hotline. You can reach them at 1-800-422-4453. You can call them anonymously to learn about the abuse reporting process, or directly report abuse to this line. They are a good resource for talking through your options if there is verbal/physical/sexual abuse going on at home.

      To explore alternative living arrangements or discuss your situation further, you can give us a call on our 24/7 hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

      We hope the information provided helps. Remember we are available 24/7 and can be toll-free reached at the number listed above. We are confidential, anonymous, and non-direct. We can also be reached via live chat anytime.

      Best Wishes

      ~NRS
