    Hello, my name is .I feel like I am possibly being abused...the only thing is that where I'm from, the way I'm being abused is totally normal. I have been so so sooo scared to do anything like this. I searched up some stuff online, and all I got out of that was call the cops call the cops and I know that's what I have to do but I DON'T WANT TO! I know its just gonna start trouble. I don't want to see a therapist, I dont wanna call cops, I just want to leave and get a new place to be because I hate it here and I don't want anything that I have right now because all I have is a freaking sicko mom! She could be so nice to any kid on this living planet! But NOOOO never her own damn child! and have I done things that all dumb kids do? Yeah, I have, But I do not deserve one bit of this!!! >
    Please don't send people to my home or anything crazy like that...

    So I'm 14 I'm pretty sure my mom is physically abusive just not as heavily as u would see on the news she usually tries to light me on fire and she hits me all the time she even cut me once and I still have the scar on my arm from it my dad strangled me a couple his of times girlfriend stopped him she's gone now which I'm happy for her but things that really make me confused is that they by me everything I want and then are nice to me when I was younger my sister used to threaten to call cps on them because they hit us and theyd say it would be worse in our new home they'd rape and abuse us the only reason I'm even on this site is because a friend of mine who knows what's been going on told me to and said they've been manipulating me and my sister Honestly I just wanna know if I can make an anonymous report against my mom and if I did and we got taken away would our new family do what my parents said or would they actually be nice if I did report them what happens to me and my siblings do we get put up for adoption and if we do can we be adopted together I really don't want to be separated from them

      Hey there. Thanks for reaching out to us here at NRS. We know that it can take a lot of courage to reach out for support, and we're glad you did. We're sorry to hear that your parents have both been physically abusive--you don't deserve that kind of treatment.

      While filing an abuse report with CPS is a big step, it's definitely a good idea if you and your siblings are in an unsafe environment. And we would absolutely consider the violence that you described unsafe. While we can't say for sure what would happen after an abuse report is filed, it's likely that an investigation would begin from there. This means that a CPS caseworker will learn more about what's going on by interviewing you and other members of the family. They'll want to know more about the abuse and what led up to it, and they'll probably want to see the scars and any other marks that your parents might've given you as well. They might ask a lot of questions, but their number one goal is to ensure that you are any other children in your home are safe. If the CPS worker were to determine that you and your siblings should be removed from the home, they will do everything they can to keep you and your siblings together. They'll also explore all options of where you might be able to stay, like with friends or family members. Being removed from your home and placed into the care of someone else does not mean that you will be raped or abused. If you ever yourself in an uncomfortable or unsafe position, please contact your local enforcement and your CPS caseworker.

      If you have any additional questions about the abuse you're experiencing or what could happen once CPS is involved, you can contact Child Help, which is a child abuse hotline. Their phone number is 800-422-4453 and you can call or text. You can also chat with them through their website at www. Childhelp.org.

      If you'd like to chat more about your specific situation or have some help filing an abuse report, you can reach out to us here at NRS. We're happy to learn more about what's going on and file a report with you, or on your behalf. You can reach us by calling 1-800-RUNAWAY or by chatting with us on our website at www.1800runaway.org. We're available 24/7 and are always happy to listen, and to help.

      Best,

      NRS

      Hello There,
      Thank you so much for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, it takes great courage to reach out and we are so glad that you have decided to reach out to us.
      You do not deserve to be abused in any type of way and we want you to know that you are not alone. You do have a right to make a report and there are a few ways you can make a report. One option to consider would be to talk with a school counselor or a teacher about what is going on at home. We know many schools are virtual but you would still be able to contact a school counselor and talk to them virtually. Another option would be to contact Child Help at 1800-422-4453 and they would be able to help with making a report. Lastly, you can always contact us and we would be able to help you with making a report.
      We know you mentioned wanting to run away, we are not legal experts but we do have some information on what would happen if you were to leave. If you were to leave it is possible your legal guardian could file a runaway report. If the police were to find you they may bring you back home. If you were to mention the abuse they most likely would investigate it or get child protective services involved.
      We hope this helps you with your decision and your situation. If you have any more questions or would like to talk further about your situation, please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. We wish you the best of luck!
