We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. It seems like you are frustrated that your other family aren’t taking your little sister’s actions seriously and don’t feel listened to. It is understandable to want to take action in some way to ease your burden a bit. It might be helpful to find other people to be supportive of you or ways you can avoid being around your little sister even if you are still at home with your whole family.

    Hi, I'm 12 too and I have a similar situation, I try my best to get good grades and if I miss a percent they get mad at me. They hit me a lot and yell and I cry every night. I want to run away and I'm planning on doing so because I've had enough and I don't want to ruin my sister's life. I would just die. I don't care if I live.

    Hi, im 12 years old and my younger sister bullies me. Its not the usual sibling fights. I keep telling my parents and they always get really annoyed of me for telling them all the time because they think its just kids being kids. I have an older sister but she keeps siding with my younger sister and I feel like I have nobody to talk to. I've tried talking to my best friend about it but she usually doesn't really care. I cant live with my younger sister anymore and want to runaway at this point. She always gets really violent at times but my parents don't notice it. I have no idea of where to go to and I fear of getting yelled at by my parents. Money isn't a problem because I have savings.

    Hey there!

    Thanks for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. You made a great first step to finding the help that you may need. It sounds like you are going through a lot and the people around you are not being supportive. You deserve to be treated with respect, to experience acceptance and to feel safe.

    We want you to know that you are strong for having gone through so much already. It is perfectly okay to deviate from what others or the common population believe to be “normal”. You’re bravery and resilience is so admirable. You are so strong for having gone through so much without having the acceptance that you do deserve for just being you. Remember that you are not alone. If you ever want to talk more about what you are experiencing or get additional support we are here 24/7 at 1800-RUNAWAY or our live chat service. The GLBT National Hotline at 1888-843-4564 is another option to gain great support from those that are familiar with the issues and experiences of those that are also a part of the LGBTQ community. You can access their website link below to utilize all the other possibly useful resources they have to offer: http://www.glbthotline.org/. Another good resource is the Trans Lifeline: 877-565-8860; https://www.translifeline.org/

    It can be really hard to live with mental health issues and we want you to know that you aren’t alone in addressing them. If you’d like some additional support, an organization that may be helpful is the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). You can contact them by calling 1-800-950-NAMI or you can text them by sending NAMI to 741741. Another agency that could be of great help is the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), they can help you locate low or no cost mental health care providers in your area. Their number is 1-800-662-4357 or you can go to their site at samhsa.gov.

    If you can give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY or reach out through Live Chat we can try to find some youth shelters that may be near your city and state by utilizing our database of resources. We can also try to call out to shelters with you or on your behalf to advocate for you.

    Stay Strong,
    NRS

    Hello,

    You mentioned some things that raise concern for your friend’s safety and well-being. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, they 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 think your friend may want to explore, this website may be helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help them to file a report if that’s the route they are considering. They do not deserve to be abused by her father. It's not their fault this is happening.
    You are a very good friend for reaching out on their behalf. Especially since this is a most difficult time for them.
    If there is anything more we can do to help contact us at 1-800- Runaway (786-2929) or www.1800runaway.org (Live chat)

    Take care,
    NRS
