          Hello Tay, it sounds like you’re going through a difficult time, so we’re glad you’re reaching out to us because we are here to help!

          You mentioned wanting to run away because you don’t want to get yelled at. While we are not legal experts, we can tell you that running away isn’t illegal, but is considered a status offense. That means that if you leave home without your mom’s permission, she could file a runaway report with the police. If she were to do that, she could have the option to press charges against anyone that takes you in.

          You also mentioned that your mom doesn’t know how hard it is for you. One thing you can do is try talking to your mom about how you are feeling when it comes to math and how her words make you feel. She may not be aware of the effort that you are putting into you math work and therefore doesn’t know the impact of her words. If you didn’t want to do it in person, we offer a service through our hotline called “Conference Calling.” If you call 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929), we could talk with you about how your feeling and what is going on, then talk to your mom, and then we would join the two calls together. A liner from National Runaway Safeline would be on the line with you the whole time to keep conversation productive and help to make sure everyone is heard.

          You also said you that you feel stupid in class and at home. No one deserves to feel like that when they are trying so hard. If you have access to a computer, there are a few websites that may be able to help beyond what you’re learning in math. We looked up a few on Google that might be able to help. http://www.onlinemathlearning.com/ and http://www.math.com/ were listed as a few good math resources.

          If you wanted to talk about any of the options we discussed about, the number we mentioned is a 24/7 and confidential number that is always available. As we mentioned, we are here to help, but we are also here to listen.

          Best of luck

        Hey..I am 12 and have thoughts of running away, i live my life mostly on my phone, I have a Online Bf and I can’t afford to loose him rn..My family is going through a lot and I have anxiety and short periods of depression, Both of my parents are racist and don’t allow us (me and my brother) to talk online, so we secretly do, If i do anything wrong the first thing she threatens is to take my phone away, My phone is the only thing keeping me from staying I think, I really want a councilor but I’m too shy to ask my parents, Every night I want to cry, my parents hate the music I listen to, Don’t trust me and don’t know the real me, They don’t know how my online friends act, and don’t get me, My parents are actually my adopted parents, My Bf lives 1,000+ miles away and I just want to be 18 already, I’ve realized I take my nails and scratch my skin when I’m around my parents, Thank you for reading this

          Hi there,

          Thank you for reaching out to us today at the National Runaway Safeline. We are here 24/7 to listen and to support.

          You mentioned a few things about feeling depressed and anxious and hurting yourself but also that you have found a lot of comfort in online communities. Your life is valuable and you deserve to feel supported. One resource you can reach out to if you ever feel like hurting or scratching yourself is To Write Love On Her Arms. You can find them at twloha.com and there you can connect with other people that are going through some of the same things as you. Another resource you can look into would be the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration at samhsa.gov or at 1-877-726-4727. There you can find information and advice on how to cope in healthy ways and look up possible counseling services in your area. If you give us a call we can also look up possible counseling and mental health services near you. You can reach us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

          Are there any counselors or other adult at school that you trust that you feel you can confide in? We also provide a counseling service here a NRS where a liner can help mediate a constructive conversation between you and your parents so you can talk about some of the things you are feeling. Let us know if that is something you would be interested in. You are not alone.

          Stay safe,

          NRS

            Hi i am 11 and i feel like i should run away. My parents are always so mean to me. And no it's not about doing chores. My parents yell at me saying i'm not trying my best or i did something wrong even though i did not. And they never look on my side of the story. I was upset with my mom and my brother would not leave me alone. I was trying to go to sleep but he was just sitting there literally just trying to find something to argue about. Then my mom walks in and asked what was wrong my brother said,"She's mad at you." my mom looked at me with a mad look on her face even though she said earlier on to my brother that it is ok if you are mad at me just wait a little bit and get over it. I told her that i was mad at her before but now i understand what she did was the right thing to do and my dad was in the room now and they all looked at me like i said I HATE YOU, YOU B****! But i said i understand. I had a lot of other reasons but to many to say.I also feel depression and got grounded for it! And also my horrible grades. I have good friends though and my best friend i asked her if she would come with me but she said no. She has a good life so i don't see her coming. I need help plz. I want to run away.

              Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are frustrated with your parents and how they treat you. It’s normal that you would want to feel understood by family, and upset when you feel like you are being blamed or misunderstood. We are not here to tell you what to do, and we are by no mean legal experts, but we would like to provide you some info to help you explore options. If you were to leave home without permission, there is a chance your parents could file a runaway report. This means that if you were to encounter law enforcement, they would be required to return you to your parents. Also, it’s wise to think through how you would feed/shelter yourself if you were to leave home.
              You mentioned that you might be depressed, and we are sorry to hear that. No one should have to go through depression alone- having a strong support system is very important. Friends, teachers, or school counselors are all great examples of people you can turn to when you are feeling down or overwhelmed. You can also give us a call at 1800 RUNAWAY and we would be happy to chat with you more in detail about your situation and explore options.

              Take care,

                      Hi, thank you so much for contacting us! It sounds like you're trying to come up with the best solution in what seems like an overwhelming situation. You're very brave for reaching out to us and trying to be a responsible person in your household. If you're under 18 and your parents are abusing illegal drugs, that may potentially be considered child neglect and your local Child Protection Services can get involved and provide you with the necessary services that you need if you contact them. In regards to your depression, we here at the NRS can refer you to your local counseling resources if you let us know hwere you're located. Talking to your school counselor about your current situation may also help. We will be able to further assist you if you call our 24/7 hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) and offer us more information. Thank you again for reaching out to us. Take care.

                    I'm Twelve and I want to run away.

                    I have been separated from my birth mother. My father will not let me have any contact with her. My step family has me do all the cleaning around the house. All of the cloths I get are hammy downs. I'm not aloud to be on my computer. when I am, I hide. Yes, my mother was abusive when I was with her, but when she was, we didn't know she was bipolar. She now takes pills and shes okay now. I love her and want contact with her. I live in Fort Collins and my mother lives in GreenRiver Wyoming. I have planned my trip out as well. I will not take my dog because he will slow me down and he raises the chance of me being found. I don't have any money and there is a slight chance that i will starve and be very dehydrated. I do sing and I do have a guitar. I have been singing since I was 3. you may know me. I ask for your help. i need money and I need the support.

                      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 really hard to be in a home where you have to do a lot of work and can’t do things you enjoy, like going on the computer. It sounds like you care about your mother and want to get back in contact. It also sounds like you have a lot of great of great strengths in music, and you’ve shown strength by reaching out for help!

                      We’re not legal experts here, but we have legal aid resources you could call to ask specific questions about laws around custody. If you haven’t already, you could consider reaching out to your previous case worker who worked with you when you were removed from your mom’s home.
                      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 you could also consider talking to your dad, or having someone else help you talk to him.

                      If you do decide to leave home, it may be helpful to consider how you will access your basic resources and how you will stay safe. You could consider where you would stay and how you would get food, shelter, clothing, and other basic resources. You could also consider how long you would stay, how you would continue school, and other details about leaving home. You could consider thinking about how would you get to Green River, and what would you do if you ran into trouble on the way. You may also consider thinking about what you would do if you felt that you were unsafe. We also want you to know that if you ever feel that you are in danger, you could call 911 for immediate help.
                      There are also many resources that could help you work through conflict at home, find a safe place if you’re in need, or help you with anything else you may need. If you want to talk more about what’s been going on, or if you would like more information about resources, you can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929) or chat with us online.
                      Again, thank you or contacting us. It sounds like you’ve been going through a really hard time, but you’ve shown a lot of strength by working through these challenges and reaching out for help. If you ever need anything in the future, please feel free to call us or chat with us online. We’re always here to listen and here to help.

                    I'm 11 and have wanted to run away for about 6 months. My parents don't love me and wish I was never born. I have proof from a text conversation on my mom's phone with my dad. He agreed with her about it. I'm bisexual with homophobic parents, grandparents, and basically all of my family. I think I have deppression but I'm not positive. I'm always ignored, bullied, and I get physically and emotionally hurt by schoolmates. I'm scared to run away but I don't think I can stay at my house much longer. I didn't come home for 2 days once and when I did come back northern my parents or my sister cared or noticed. Please help. I've come up with 5+ plans to run away but i keep editing them till their perfect. I don't know what to do. I'm not abused at all at home.

                      Hi there,

                      Thank you for contacting us at the National Runaway Safeline. We are here to listen and to support.

                      We are very sorry to hear about the things you are facing at home and at school. Are there any counselors or teachers that you trust that can advocate for you with the bullying? if not, you can find an online community that can help you with what you are going through. You are not alone. A couple are www.stopbullying.gov and www.pacer.org/bullying. You deserve to be proud of who you are and how you identify. If you want to talk to other people or get support from an online LGBTQ community you can reach out to the LGBT National Youth Talkline at 1-800-246-7743 or take a look at the It Gets Better Project organization at itgetsbetter.org. We hope that some of the resources can provide comfort and solidarity for you.

                      You also deserve to feel supported and safe at home. Have things always been like this? One service we provide here is conference calling where a liner could mediate a conversation between you and your parents where you could voice your concerns to try to come to some solutions to be happier at home. Let us know if you'd be interested in that. Because you are a minor, if you were to leave and your parents filed a runaway report, you would most likely be returned by the police if found. We could also walk through some other options with you. Don't hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

                      Best,

                          Hey there,

                          Thanks for reaching out to us. It sounds like you're really unhappy at home and at school. We're sorry to hear you're going through what sounds like a really tough time.

                          If you haven't already, you could try talking to your parents (or someone else in your family, like an older sibling or a grandparent) about how you've been feeling. You can talk to them about how it feels when your friends have exciting new phones and your stuff is old. It could help your parents to know exactly why having a newer phone or game console is so important to you.

                          If you find it difficult to talk to your parents, you could try doing a conference call with us. The way that would work is you and your parents would call our number (1-800-786-2929), and someone over here would mediate a conversation between you guys. You would let us know what you want to focus on, and you could set some ground rules first, like no yelling or name-calling. We would step in if those rules are broken or if the conversation becomes unproductive.

                          You mentioned being unhappy with your life and wanting to die. Is there anyone you trust who you can talk about that with, like one of your friends? Another option is to try talking to your school counselor. They might have some good advice for how to deal with your particular situation. If you'd prefer to remain anonymous, you can also try calling the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. It might even help if you wrote down all of your thoughts or even wrote your parents a letter about all of this.

                          You can also always give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 at anytime. Our hotline is 24/7, confidential, and toll-free. We can discuss your situation in more depth and explore your options some more. We want you to know that you're never alone, and we're always here if you need someone to talk to.

                          Hope to hear from you soon!

                          NRS

                        Well what can i say. I'm 12, and troubled. My parents don't seem to care at all, mom and dad will never grow up and divorce. They have a violent relationship, and i'm in the middle of it. My mom and dad always argue, always going back in fourth between together and hating each other. It's been like this my whole life, and i'm done with it, i've cried to many times because of it, and they never listen, they never even try to understand. I'm neglected, verbally abused. My mom calls me stupid, or an ass, retarded,i just can't handle them doing this. They we're arguing just today, and i told my dad, this needs to stop, he didn't care, he just told me to mind my buisness. This needs to stop, or else i don't think i'll live. I suffer from anxiety and depression because of it. Please i need help.
