  • I want to run away but I don't know

    I'm 17 and my mother is emotionally abusive on an everyday basis, and has been for the past few years. I'm finally sick of it and I want to leave, what should I do?

    We’re sorry to hear you are being mistreated by your mom. You certainly don’t deserve that. You sound frustrated, which is understandable. Although we never tell anyone what to do, we can help you explore what options you have so you can decide what is best for you. One idea might be to talk to someone that you trust about what’s going on, maybe a teacher or school counselor, for instance. The more support you can get, the better. Another option is to file an abuse report on your mom.
    We would like to explore other options with you but would probably need to get some more information about your situation. The best way to do that is if you could give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We are here 24/7 and are totally confidential. We hope to hear from you! Good luck!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
