  • My mom is abusive

    Hey I’m 14 years old and I’ve wanted to run away for 2 years now. My mom is physically and mentally abusive. She neglects me and calls me degrading phrases. About 2-3 weeks ago, on a Sunday, I was in a fight with her. I can’t do anything so I run out of the house. I texted my friend about what happened. Today, I was using the bathroom and doing my business. She gets mad at me for being in the bathroom, and once I get out she pushes me into my little brothers door. My dad says I can’t tell the consuler at school because of CPS. I hope my parents get divorced. Also my little brother thinks I deserve to be abused like this. This isn’t the first time she’s hit me, she’s been doing this since the 3rd grade, I’m 8th grade.
