      Thank you for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline. We are very sorry to hear that your best friend’s mother is abusive towards her. Abuse is not okay, and she doesn’t deserve to be treated that way. She does have the option of reporting the abuse to someone that she trusts such as a school teacher or counselor. She could also try to experts on child abuse at Child Help (1-800-422-4453), they could help her file an abuse report and even discuss how to transfer custody to another family member or close friend. You mentioned that she has thought about harming herself, talking to someone about her issues may help. To Write Love on Her Arms (twloha.com) and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) are two great resources for people that have thought about harming themselves or committing suicide.
      You stated that you and another friend are helping her runaway, ensuring that she has a safe place to go to is very important. Running away is not illegal but since she is only 13, her parents could file a runaway report on her. With a runaway report, if the police find her they would return her back home to her mom unless she tells them that she isn’t safe at home. If you allowed her to stay with you without her parent’s permission, you could get in trouble for harboring a runaway. If you would like additional information or have any further question, please feel free to contact us directly via phone (1-800-786-2929), email, or live chat, you could also give your friend our contact information so that she can contact us directly.

    I'm 11 and I want to run away from home..

    I want to because my parents, whenever I do stuff they dislike, they will hit me with a remark like, "Pitiful," and "Stupid," and what they don't know is that I am actually suicidal. I don't want to be here and I am struggling to stay sane. What should I do?

      Thank you for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We are very sorry to hear that you have been abused at home. You don’t deserve to be treated that way and it is understandable that you would like to get out of that situation. You do have the option of reporting the abuse. Talking to someone that you trust could help such as a teacher or school counselor. Child Help (1-800-422-4453) is a great resource to help with abuse reporting and information about transferring custody. You could also ask your mother if she would allow you to stay with another family member maybe your dad or sister. You mentioned that you wanted to die, your life matters. Although you are in a tough situation, you are not alone. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) has experts that could talk you through those thoughts of harming yourself. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. We encourage you to contact us directly (1-800-786-2929) for additional resources and support.

      Hi,

      Thank you for reaching out. It sounds like you are going through a lot and we are here to see how we can help you.

      You do not deserve to be hurt or treated poorly like the way your parents treat you. If you feel unsafe with your parents you can always call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929), the police, or the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-422-4453. Any of those numbers can help you find a safe place in a dangerous moment, or even help you file a report about your parents hurting you, if you wanted to do that. If you ran away and your parents filed a runaway report and you were picked up by the police, they may return you home.
      However, if there is evidence of your parents hurting you, such as a report filed, it is possible they would not return you to an unsafe environment.

      If you did not want to call someone about this, you can always tell another adult, such as a teacher or school counselor. They may be someone who can help you feel better and make sure you are safe at home. If you do run away, or are want to prepare a place you can run to, you can call us and we can help find you a shelter to stay at.

      You do not deserve to live in a home that you are being hurt in. Please do reach out to us or one of the numbers we mentioned to get help being safe in your own home.

    I'm 12.
    I think my mom hates me.She calls me "Mam" and Ms" and she cussed at me.She also tends to yell at me for little things like not giving her my clothes so she can wear them . When I was younger I had math homework. And my twin had pointed it out. We were cleaning our book bags. She told our mom and she forced me to do it. We were in grade K and the homework was multiplacation. I remember her picking my up by my neck, and she slammed me on the floor. I have had suicidal thoughts and have recently thought of running away and a few month before my birthday we had a talent show. I remember no one showing up my mom of course. I had told her and asked her to be there.i had to walk home. And then when I got home she yelled at me over deodorant because she thought I stole it and her hairspray. She didn't even congratulate me. And she's always talking about me to her friends. I have thought of Killin my self multiple times. I've even googled how to have a painless death. And how to run away. And how to starve yourself to the point you die. Please help me I want to live with some else other than my family members. She didn't even want me when I was born. She didn't want twins she only wanted done child. That was my older sister (twin).I really want help

      Hello there, thanks for reaching out today.

      Sounds like you are going through so much at home with your mom. You do not deserve to be harmed in anyway, and there is no excuse for the way she is treating you. You deserve to be treated with respect and to make it through this difficult time. Your life has infinite value, and here at NRS we truly want to see you through this.

      It was really brave of you to reach out today and we encourage you to always do so when you are feeling like you are wanting to kill yourself. There are resources out there for you and you do not have to go through this alone. If you are feeling like you are in immediate danger, please call 911. They typically would take you to the hospital for 3 days to provide you with treatment and a safe place to be. If you are wanting to talk to someone about how you are feeling you might reach out to a close adult like a school counselor or a friend. You can always call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY if you ever want to talk to someone about how you are feeling. You could also reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. There are people out there who truly want to help you through this.

      It sounds like you understandably want to live elsewhere where you will be treated better. You mentioned that your mom really hurt you in the past by picking you up by the neck and slamming you on the floor. That is so not okay. You so have the right to report abuse that is going on in your household to child protective services (CPS). If the abuse is found to be highly dangerous you would be removed from the home. To learn more about your options your might reach out to the expert child advocates 1-800-422-4453. If you have a relative who is willing to take you in, you might have them talk to your mom for you about moving too. You can live anywhere that your guardian says is okay.

      Please do not hesitate to call or chat us if you ever need. We really want to be a support for you during this time.

      Best,

      NRS

      Hi there,

      Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you’ve been going through such a tough time, but we are here to support you and help you in any way we can. That sounds so isolating to feel far away from people who care about you. That sounds hurtful to feel that your mom doesn’t care about you.

      If you haven’t already, you could consider reaching out to a trusted adult, relative, worker/teacher/counselor at your school for help and support. If you haven’t already, you could also consider talking to your parents about how you’ve been feeling or have someone help you talk with them.

      There are also many resources that could help you work through conflict at home, get help with classes, or help you with anything else you may need.

        You mentioned being a good friend, that is pretty awesome. If you haven't already, you might try to reach out to a close friend or trusted adult and let them know how you are feeling. It can be incredibly hard, but reaching out to the people around you for help might help you get the support you so need and deserve. If you need help having that conversation with your parent or guardian, we do have a conference call service here at NRS if you call 1-800-RUNAWAY. We can mediate that conversation with your guardian about how you are feeling, and advocate for your needs. We also have a national database of individual and family counseling services if you feel like those resources could help your situation.

        It was so brave for you to reach out today and we encourage you to keep doing so whenever you are feeling this way.

        Hi, thanks for reaching out to us at NRS.

        It sounds like things have been pretty tough at home so it’s understandable that you are trying to figure out if you should leave. You mentioned that your parents abuse you and threaten you a lot. Nobody deserves to be abused and there is help out there if you want to talk to someone or report it. The National Child Abuse Hotline (800) 422-4453 is available 24/7 if you want to talk further about the abuse and then decide if you want to connect to a local agency to make a report. The goal of making an abuse report is to ensure you are safe and possibly place you in an alternative living environment, which it sounds like is something you are looking for.

        Do you have a place in mind where you could go and stay safe if you did run away? Homelessshelterdirectory.org is a good resource for shelters, if that is something you are considering, or you are welcome to call us 24/7 at (800) RUNAWAY to explore options in our directory of resources. Running away is a big decision and you don’t have to go through it alone.

        Best of luck!
        NRS
