    Im a 16 year old girl. Ive recently had trouble with my parents. Ive been expelled from school and everything was taken away from me. My relationship, phones, no privacy. I dont feel safe at home. My parents are hispanic. Both mom and dad are abusive. On July 4 of 2023, i had a chemical pregnancy. A miscarriage. It was very hard for me. i have no contact with my boyfriend. My parents dont want me around him and hes almsot 18. Now that im not pregnant anymore, my mom abuised me and made me do things. My dad wanted me to overdose with pills to kill my baby. I was only 2 weeks pregnant but it happend naturally. Ive been diagnosed with server depresstion 3 years ago. It started to come back. my life is empty. I want to call CPS on my mom and dad for what they say and do to me but im scared what will happen since I'm still a minior, i have 2 years till I'm 18. I dont know what will happen.

      We are glad you reached out to us for help. There is a lot of change in your life right now. It is totally normal to feel overwhelmed with these issues. It is also very common for depression to return in very stressful situations like you describe. Calling CPS is certainly a reasonable option based on what you have told us in the post. However, there are other options you may want to consider as well.

      We would like to talk with you about those options and the best next steps for you to handle everything you are dealing with if you decide calling CPS is the best plan for you. You can reach us either through a chat on our website or on a call at our crisis hotline 1(800) RUNAWAY. Both are available 24/7 and completely confidential.

      We hope to hear from you soon.

    hi so im a 17 year old from sc, im doing research rn to figure out whether i can get myself out of this trauma ive been taking for the last 6 years. so my mother died when i was in 6th grade and my dad found a new woman, she was cool for like the first few months then after awhile she started to tell me that my family didnt care about me anymore and that they didnt love me and would lie to my dad saying she didnt say that and stuff and id cry to my dad asking him to believe me and he wouldnt. after a year we moved into another house and thats when i started my 8th grade year and this is where it got worse, shed yell at me every day constantly throwing a fit over the tiniest things and would talk nasty about me to her friends over the phone and to her family members calling me names and would tell my dad how he doesnt parent me the right way and that he needs to correct me and that she has to do everything in the house. i complained more to my dad and eventually they broke up for one night because of it, then she came back and it was even worse blaming me for it and everything got harder on me and i was getting my stuff taken away for no reason, my room tore apart and things like that so i couldn’t take it anymore and i ran away and wanted to stay at a friends house and then she called the cops on me and i tried explaining i don’t understand why she treats me the way she does but then calls the cops on me for running away as if she wants me here after all the times telling me shes kicking me out the house when im 18. eventually i got kicked out the house because i left one day and i came back home and the door was locked and they wouldnt let me back in, so i slept at a friends house and the next morning i came back they kicked me out and i stayed at a friends house for 3 months before i ended up going back home, when i came back home my dad and i had a little moment and cried and he offered for me to work with him and stuff and we got a little closer, i told him how she treated me and he was like “idk man idk man” and they got into an argument because i kept complaining about the way she talked to me and treated me, they broke up and she took all his money and ******** and my dad wanted it back so they got back together and she continued to treat me that way, then we moved to the place we currently live in hhi for a “restart” and she was doing good at first, she was on medication for whatever made her angry and stuff but then she got off and now is even worse throwing my stuff around in my room, taking my things, calling me names to my face and to her friends and family, yelling at me. my 15 year old sister doesnt get any treatment like this she takes her out to eat and buys her clothes and stuff and is really nice to her but treats me like total crap. so is this like child neglect/ verbal abuse or what can i report her for to get her away from me?

      It sounds like you're in a really tough situation. You don't deserve to be talked bad about, screamed at, have your property destroyed or have your feelings dismissed. You are able to report her to CPS, but that does not guarantee that she will be taken away.

      Some options we have to help at 1800Runaway are to be a mediator where we could do a 3 way call with you, her and even your father. We are also mandated reporters and if you tell us her name, your address, your name and details, we can also report any sort of abuse. We have resources we can connect you with as well, such as counseling. We are here for you if you need us at 1800-RUNAWAY or

      We wish you the 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.
