  • I want to leave home

    my mom and step dad are always down my throat about something I do telling me they're going to sell
    my car because I got a piercing behind their back. I've recently been trying to look for my real dad because I want to leave the house and I'm 18 years old. my job can transfer me to another state that it has more locations in if I choose to move. I'm almost half way through my senior year but I just can't take it anymore. nobody notices me when I'm home or when I'm gone but the second I screw up they're down my neck like I'm such a bad kid. should I leave and live with a close friend in Baltimore or find my dad and live with him?

    RE: I want to leave home

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safelin (NRS). It sounds like there has been a lot going on at home. You mentioned that your mom and stepdad have been on your case for everything. It sounds quite overwhelming to deal with, and it seems you are wanting to try to live with a friend to try to find your dad. We cannot tell you what to do as you know what is best in your situation. The important thing to think of is safety, how long you plan to be away, and having a back up plan in case things may not go as planned. If you would like to talk more about your situation, please reach out by phone or chat so that we may provide support and resources to help you in your situation.

    Please be safe in your decision. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Take care,
