    Hi, there,
    Thank you so much for writing in. It’s a brave thing that you’re doing, sharing what’s going on at home with your mom. You never, ever deserve to be hit. It’s unacceptable and just not okay. We’re glad to hear that your brother was there to help you out, but it’s not right that your mom was hitting you to begin with. We encourage you to confide in adults that you trust, like a teacher, guidance counselor, another family member, or even one of your friend’s parents. You also have the right to file an abuse report. For more information on abuse reporting, what constitutes abuse, and what might happen if you do file an abuse report, you can contact Child Help at 1-800-422-4453.

    My mum hits me too. My dad had gone away for hitting her and he had been under restriction order. She kept on saying that im like my dad but im not. Today she said that to me again so i got angry and went inside. Then she started hitting me in my head and back with her shoe. I was lucky my brother was there otherwise she would have hurt me a lot. I dont know what to do, she says shes sending me to my dad but i dont want to. Im only 12 so i dont know what to do.

    My mom hits me because she thinks I don't know how to take good care of home. I am 15; I have two brothers but she treats me the worst I don't know what to do.

    Hello, thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. We are sorry to hear that you are being put into this scary situation at home. If you fear for your immediate safety and would like to contact your local police please feel free to do so. Or, you can call in to our hotline and we can call out to your local police together on a conference call. We want you to feel like you can be safe at home.
    You mentioned experiencing abuse at home. If you would like to report to CPS you can call us at 1800-RUNAWAY and we can report together or you can on your own as well. Also you can contact Child Help a National Child Abuse Hotline to make a report at 1800-422-4453 or at www.childhelp.org . Possibly mentioning your concerns with your family retaliating because you reporting may help the police see that there is a need for your safety to be considered. Also talking with someone at school or another trusting adult may help you report in a way that gives you some distance from your family finding out about it. We are sorry you feel like no one listens to you. If you ever feel you need to talk you can call into our hotline and we can discuss your situations as well as try to help you brainstorm some options to try and help you. We are here to listen. If you feel you need to leave your home you can also call us for resources for youth shelters.
    Again, we thank you for having the courage to reach out to us. We are open 24/7 are confidential and toll free. We wish you the best.

    Hi I am 13 years old and live with my mom,dad,and 8 siblings I HATE my older sister SO much she came to America 5 years ago.Before she came everything was all good but now that she’s here it’s like a living hell all she does is tell my mom lies or instigates and my mom believes her and yells at us or beats us up and when we try to tell her our side of the story she doesn’t even listen to us or she just thinks were lying and my dad just yells at us all the time for absolutely no reason and sometimes when he gets mad he gets violent with us I don’t know what to do because I’m the youngest and nobody ever listens to me or tries to help it’s like she’s the QUEEN of the house.I don’t want to get my mom or dad in trouble because I love them both but at the same time I don’t sometimes. I am scared that if I tell the police I’m gonna get beat up by my family members.

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand that it takes courage to seek help. We are sorry to hear that you and your siblings are being abused at home. Abuse is never okay, and you don't deserve to be treated that way. If you feel as though you are in immediate danger, we encourage you to contact the police. You mentioned that you don't care if you live or die. Although you are going through a rough time right now, you are not alone. Your life matters ! Talking to someone about how you feel could help. The National Suicide Hotline(1-800-273-8255) is a great resource for support. You have the right to report the abuse, you could contact CPS. They would conduct an investigation and if they determine that your home isn't safe they would remove you and your siblings. Child Help (1-800-422-4453) could provide you with other options and you could get information on how to transfer custody. Another option that you have is looking into emancipation laws for your state. We hope that this information helps, please contact us directly via our 24 hour crisis hotline (1-800-786-2929), email, or live chat, if you have any questions or just want to talk.

    From as long as I can remember my mom hit my siblings and I. I was the black sheep and received the most abuse. Whenever my mother got angry she would beat me, usually with shoes. It was 2 years ago when I first stood up to her, and things haven’f been as bad. I’m 16 now and fallen into depression because my mother is a terrible person and doesn’t understand me at all. My father doesn’t abuse me but he doesnmf understand me either. I’ve told my parents I’m going to kill myself as threats to stop the harassment, but it my mother replies with “why’re u going to kill urself, who died.” I don’t care if I live or die anymore. I feel like death would be better than living in this hell hole any longer. I just feel bad for ny younger siblings who have to deal with that monster.

    Hi there,

    Thanks a ton for reaching out. We're sorry to hear that your mother has such extreme mood swings and that she beats you. This is unacceptable; your mom has no right to treat you in any way that intentionally causes you harm, and you don't deserve to experience that. A lot of people who hit others make apologies for their behavior and promise to change their behavior like they say, and understandably it could be very difficult to be told this and see no changes. We are able to file an abuse report to CPS about this behavior if you are interested. They may be able to rehouse you after they investigate your home situation. We also can talk to you about these struggles, and any feelings you may have. If you're interested in these services, you can call us at 1-800-786-2929.

    Best,
    NRS

    I am 13 years old, and the way my mom acts is having a severe effect on my life. She has extreme mood swings, usually dependent on how much business we are getting. A lot of times I feel like she cares about money more than me. She compares me to other kids a lot (‘So and so can play three different instruments! Look at you, what can you do?”). She thinks that me reading and being on my phone = me growing up to being a lazy adult, so she says that she has to “beat it out of me”. But in between, she acts like a really nice mom, and she always apologizes and says that she’s changing herself.

    Hello there, thanks for reaching out today!

    Sounds like you are going through so much right now. Unfortunately we are based in the United States and do not know what international runaway laws look like. Your might reach out to the UK's Childline: https://www.childline.org.uk/get-support/.

    Best of luck to you and we are sorry we are unable to help.

    Hi, my mum hits me too. It hurts a lot both physically and mentally. I have become too depressed to even do my homework. Lately, I have wanted to die. My dad is home rarely. I don't really want to talk to my friends or teachers about it as school is the one place where I feel happy and safe. I don't want to associate school with home in any way. Sometimes I wish my school was boarding so I don't ever have to come home and see my parents. Recently I was away from home for about five days and it was one of the happiest moments of my life. What should I do

    Hi,

    Thanks for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline and sharing about the abuse you have been experiencing at home, your experience with self-injury, your current thoughts, and the relationship you feel like you have. It takes a lot of courage to reach out and especially in a time where you have a really tough and complex situation at home. We are sorry you are experiencing abuse, no one ever deserves to go through that. You do have the right to report the abuse to Child Help at 1-800-422-4453. You can either do it yourself or call into us directly and we can support you through it. It is hard to say the result of reporting, but if you call in you can ask what the process might look like.

    Also another way you can seek help is reaching out to a friend, teacher, or counselor at school that can help you look for resources. Your mental health is important. You can also look at SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) at samhsa.gov or call them directly at 1-877-726-4727 to help you find the support that you need. If you do ever feel in direct danger, to yourself, or some else makes you feel that way, please call out to 911 or reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255). Another resource related to your experience is To Write Love On Her Arms (twloha.com)

    It can be difficult to know how to talk to your parents and express your feelings about how you are feeling. We would encourage you to reach out to a trusted adult, teacher, relative, and friend that you can talk to and potentially help you mediate a conversation with your parents about your current situation. At NRS, we do offer a service call conference calling, where you can call into our hotline and then we would reach out to your guardian and help advocate for you, help you express the needs of to your parents.

    We are here for you and will support you in anyway that we can. Please feel free to call into us directly as we can talk further about your situation and find resources that are best for you in your area. Stay strong and you are not alone in this! Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY we are open 24/7.

    Hi im seventeen years old and suffer from depression. I have always been a successful student, and always made honor roll. However i am criticized by my parents for wanting to be a normal teen. I can never go out with friends,(not even to the park across from our own house) while my older and younger brother constantly fail classes and leave the house feely. I've told my parents about my depression but they say i don't have it even though they are not qualified to diagnose me. In the past i did cut my wrists when i felt down but haven't in over 2 years. But now my mother is beating me when i come home with less than a 95 on any school work. Its gotten so bad to the point i am considering suicide. I live in a new area and don't have anyone i see as a close friend to talk to. I am truly loosing all hope. Please help.

    Hello there -

    Thank you for taking the time out of your day to get into contact with us here at the National Runaway Safeline, we are always here to listen and here to help in any way that we can. From your message to us, it sounds like your going through a very hard time right now and seem to be very overwhelmed with everything that is going on especially if your mother keeps yelling and screaming at you. It must be very frustrating to feel a little helpless right now. No one deserves to go through something like that.

    It sounds like you are in a difficult situation, and we understand it takes courage to reach out for help. The National Runaway Safeline is located in the United States of America (USA). Our knowledge of helpful community based resources (youth shelters) and our understanding of youth in crisis related laws is limited to the USA. If you are located in a country outside of the USA, you can use this link to find a youth helpline in or around your country: http://www.childhelplineinternationa...where-we-work/.

    We hope that by reaching out to a local resource, you are able to get the support you need from an organization that understands the laws and circumstances that affect youth in your country.
