    Re: Parent issue

    Hi there,

    Thank you for sharing some of your situation with us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). It sounds like there is a bit of tension at home between you and your parents. You feel that since you are starting college soon, you want to be able to focus on your studies. Home life right now sounds quite stressful and distracting for you. We are sorry that you are feeling this way. We would be happy to explore more options with you if you chatted with us or called our 24/7 crisis line at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). Everyone's situation is unique, with varying circumstances. It also depends on where you live and if you can move out at 16. Most states set 18 or older as age of majority. If you wanted to talk more about what's going on and identify some ways that may help with your situation, please reach out by phone or chat soon.
    It's great that you reached out to explore options and plan ahead before making a decision.

    We look forward to hearing from you.

    Take care,

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