  • Verbal abuse

    My mom called me a piece of s**t, and said that she didn't care about me. Then when my grandma asked her she said that i was lying. She told me that if I wanted to leave with my dad that she wouldn't care. I want to leave but I don't want to leave my little sisiter (8 years old). But it's not just this, she is constantly move around and change schools. The longest I've stayed in a school is probably 2 years. And the shortest is 1 day. There is more to the story but I just need help on deciding what to do. I want to talk to her but I am afraid.

    RE: Verbal Abuse

    Thanks for reaching out to us. It sounds like you have been facing serious problems with your mom at home. It can be hurtful to hear those kinds of things, and no one deserves to be treated the way you have been. You seem conflicted with wanting to escape from your mom’s verbal abuse and wanting to stay to care for your sister. Your sister is definitely lucky to have you looking out for her.

    Regarding leaving your mom’s house to live with your dad, many locations deem 18 years old as the legal age to move out. If your mom is your legal guardian and she files a runaway report, the police would be required to return you back to your mom if they found you. There is also a chance that your dad or whoever you stay with could be charged with harboring a runaway. We are not legal experts though so you may want to contact your local police to verify what the laws are specifically in your area.

    It sounds like you have been thinking about this plan to leave for a while now. What would your overall plan be (i.e long term housing [would your dad tell you to leave in a current time frame], transportation, financial stability, access to food/clothes, going to school, etc.)? Having a solid plan about what you are planning on doing it might be a good idea so that you can think about what is reasonably possible for you to do and want isn’t.

    Another option is to call us, and we can facilitate a conference call between you and your mom. We would mediate the call, and it would allow you to clearly express your concerns and feelings to your mom in a safe space.We can also provide mental health resources for you in your area if you are feeling mental and emotional distress or would want family counseling.

    Again, we’re really glad that you reached out to us. It takes a lot to ask for help and you are trying to figure out your options which is really good to see. If you would like to talk further about your situation, please do not hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us www.1800 runaway.org. We’re here to listen, here to help.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
