  • my mom is kicking me out n ill have to go to a different sch

    hey, my names samantha and im reli not that bad of a kid. i started varsity my freshman year for soccer, my grades arent horrible but they could be better. i have the greatest friends, but for some reason i cant do a single thing right. no matter what i do, my mom turns it in to something bad. ive ran away twice and was brought home by the police both times. im the nicest person you will ever meet until i go home. i go straight to my room and sleep. which is also part of the reason y im not doing great in school. my dad is finally back in my life and offered to buy a house close to my school so i can get outta my house for a little. but now my mom is saying if i continue to talk to my dad, that her side of the family does not want me to go to christmas, and i feel like im being disowned because ive been going there every year for 17 years now. im only a junior and my dad is going to be manager of an apartment rite outside of my school district. and now my mom is threatening to kick me out. and i will be forced to go to another school that has a very bad reputation WITH NO SOCCER TEAM. the only reason i go to school is for soccer and now i feel like im left with no decision but to stay with my mom. but i dont want to. i get mentaly and emotionaly abused everyday of my life by my own mother and im sorry but i cant choose when ive had enough of being put down. i have a place to live. i will get a car. so i will have transportation to school. does any one know of anyway i could still go to the same school?! please. anything will help. because my only other choice is cyber school.

    i live in PA, and im currently 17. please help me out, i dont know what else to do

    Hi Samantha.

    Thanks for reaching out the National Runaway Switchboard. We are glad that you wrote in to us today and felt comfortable sharing so much information with us. It certainly sounds like you have a lot going on right now! You are having problems with your mom, worried about your relationship with your father, and also frustrated with the possibility that you won’t be able to play with your soccer team anymore.

    You deserve to be safe and happy at home and it sounds like at this point you feel like you are being mentally and emotionally abused everyday. What sort of stuff is going on? Have you ever talked to anyone about this? Home should be a place that you feel supported and safe. If feel as though you are being abused, you have the right to file a report against your mom. Is this something that you are interested in?

    From what you wrote, it sounds like you are a planning on moving in with your dad. Is this right? What do you think living with your dad would be like? It sounds like you feel like it would be better with your dad, except for the fact that you may have to go to a different school and so your main concern is staying at the school you are at now so that you can continue with soccer. Does that sound correct? Just so you know, your mom shouldn’t be kicking you out and that is considered neglect.

    Have you talked to anyone about your wishes to stay at your school? Who have you been able to talk to about this? How has this gone? What have people said? Under the McKinney Vento act, runaway and homeless youth should be allowed to continue on with their original school. If you want to learn more about this, you can call us anytime at 1-800-RUNAWAY and we can talk more about this.

    You deserve to be safe and happy and, from what you wrote, it doesn’t sound like you feel as though you are either of these things. We are concerned about your well-being and we hope that things work out for you. If you are able, give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We are anonymous and confidential.

    -Best of luck
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
