  • Emotionally abusive mom? pt. 2

    Hey, I posted a thread yesterday about my mom. And I just wanted to mention that I want to know if I could live somewhere else? It sounds silly, but I really don't feel safe at home or around my mom. I'm too scared to tell anyone about this and I've heard of stories where you can call the cops on your parents and the cops won't do anything. That's what I'm afraid of. I'm afraid of what my mom is gonna do if I tell someone. (I don't know if I need to mention this, but I'm from Minnesota, I guess we have different laws here, I'm not sure.)

    Hello again,

    Thanks for sharing you had posted yesterday. We were able to look on your post yesterday to have more of a background. We’re so sorry you don’t feel safe at home and want you to know you do have a right to report. We can even help you make an abuse report if you’d like to reach out by calling or Live Chat (instant messaging) which opens today at 4:30pm CST.

    We aren’t legal experts; however, some youth are able to work out alternative living arrangements. This tends to happen a few different ways including through Child Protective Services (CPS.) CPS does not always remove minors due to abuse, but that is the outcome sometimes. Other options include runaway/homeless youth shelter which is generally temporary. If we know your city/town in Minnesota we can see if there is one nearby. If neither of these possibilities interest you, some young people are able to get permission from their parent/guardian to live someplace else. If there is another family member you think your mom would agree to you living, perhaps you could have that person reach out to your mom.

    It’s understandable to feel scared, especially not knowing how your mom will react whether you get your cops involved or not. We’re here if you’d like to talk further and encourage you to Live Chat to continue discussing the details of your situation. 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.
