    Thank you for reaching out to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand that it takes courage to seek help. We are very sorry to hear about the way in which your parents have been treating you. Mental illness is a real issue and it is very brave of you for wanting to get help. You mentioned that your father has emotionally and physically abused you. Abuse is never okay and you don't deserve to be treated that way. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You may also be able to report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help (1-800-422-4453 ) www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. It may also be a good place to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody. Please feel free to 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.

    Hello, I'm a 15 year old female that needs help in my family situation. In my family my mother is a wonderful caring person but... she doesn't belive in any sort of mental illness and I'm sure that I have some form of depression and I really want to go to some therepy because I think it would be very benifical and I didn't know how to start the conversation so I went to my conseler and she was quite helpful but my mother denied that I needed any sort of help.. and my father often yells and screams and calls names and punches items in the house and has only a few times smacked me in the head. I feel I need to leave my situation but I don't know how my mother has started crying often because he yells at her so bad I've been trying to look at runaway shelters but I don't know how that's going to work as you need permission to stay there

    Reply:My mother has never understood my feelings

    Hello,
    Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

    We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on.
    We are sorry to hear that things are not well between you and your mother.
    It would be nice if she could acknowledge your feelings because they are important.
    It is also unfortunate that she has hit you with objects and speaks badly of your boyfriend. Neither of you deserve that. It is not your fault that she does these things.

    We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email or bulletin for assistance. If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about how we can help specifically, please call or chat soon.

    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).

    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to or seek emergency assistance immediately.
    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Take care,
    NRS

    My mother has never understood my feelings, my emotion and she always says so casually that I cannot have any depression. I bring depression on my own wish. I am depressed because my mother don't like my boyfriend she always says abusive word against my boyfriend and hit me with sharp weapon like bettlenut cutter or knife. How I will meet with my boyfriend whom I love .How to tackle this woman?

    Hey,

    Thanks for reaching out. You do not deserve to be hurt in anyway at all, especially for being gay. Recognizing that it is wrong that your mother is not treating you the way you deserve and asking for help shows a lot of courage.

    Child help is the National Child Abuse Hotline that can help report your mother and talk to you about the process and answer any questions you might have. You can call them at 1-800-422-4453 or look at their website at childhelp.org.

    There are several hotlines that assist folks who are going through struggles like yourself that might be helpful, LGBT National Hotline 1-888-843-4564 and LGBT
    National Youth Talkline 1-800-426-7743.

    Finally, you can always call or chat us to talk more about what’s going on. We are confidential and can provide support, because you are important, and like all the people above, are here to help. We’re available 24/7.

    Again, thanks for reaching out. It takes a lot to ask for help and you are trying to figure out your options which is really good to see. If you would like to talk further about your situation, please do not hesitate to call or chat with us. We’re here to listen, here to help.

    Hi,
    Thank you for reaching out. It sounds like you’re in a very scary situation and we’re glad that you reached out for support. It takes a lot of courage to share your story. You don’t deserve to be abused and we’re so sorry to hear that the police did not recognize your situation for what it is. We encourage you to reach out to adults that you trust, like a teacher or a guidance counselor. Teachers and guidance counselors are mandated reporters, meaning that they must report any abuse they hear about to child protective services. In addition, you can also call the National Child Abuse Hotline for more information about what the process of reporting abuse looks like and what might happen if you do report. Their number is 1-800-422-4453. They can also talk to you about the possibility of having custody of you transferred to another person (like a family member) if you think that might be an option. It might also help to document any instance that your mom hurts you, either by writing down what happened or by taking pictures of any marks or bruises she leaves.

    You also mentioned that you think about hurting yourself. You don’t have to go through these feelings on your own. There is help out there. If you ever feel like you’re in immediate danger of hurting yourself, you can always call 9-1-1. Another resource that might be helpful is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. You deserve to be supported!

    Thank you again for reaching out. We hope this was helpful and we encourage you to reach out by phone if you need additional resources or need help figuring out your options. Our number is 1-800-786-2929 and our lines are always open. If you have a moment, we'd appreciate your feedback of our crisis services at the following link:

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you’re having a lot of problems at home, and to a lesser extent at school. We hope that we can help out.

    We want to let you know that your mom has no right to hit you. No matter what you may have done or not done in school, your mother should not be putting her hands on you to harm you. This is in no way your fault, and we want you to know you deserve to live in a safe and comfortable environment. We are able to file abuse reports to CPS, and we can talk with you about your situation if you want to. Just call us at 1-800-786-2929 in order to do this.


    We hope this response was helpful! We’d love to hear from you about your experience using our crisis email/forum.** Your feedback plays an important role in helping us improve our services to youth and families.

    I am 14 years old whenever I do something wrong. the littlest thing my my yells at me and slaps me. One time I ran away because she pulled my hair and punched me and slapped me just because I forgot to call my teacher to makeup a test. The next day they found me and said she wasn't going to do that again it didn't happen for 6 months then I forgot to do my homework and my teacher called my mom and my mom was so angry at me, she started to punch me and hit me again.

    Hey there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline (NRS). It sounds like you have been experiencing extreme physical abuse from your mother, and we are here to help in any way we can.

    You said that this abuse is frequent and your mother has done this to you for your whole life. We want to let you know that abuse is never acceptable. If you ever feel in immediate danger, please call 9-1-1. Child Help, the national child abuse hotline, may be a helpful resource for you. Their phone number is 1-800-422-4453 and their website is childhelp.org. They will walk you through the steps of filing an abuse report. If you are interested in doing this but not comfortable with doing it on your own, you are also welcome to call us here and we will call Child Help along with you. Our phone number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929), and we are completely confidential and available 24/7.

    You mentioned that you love going to school because your friends are there. That is great that you have a community of people you are happy to be around. Your school counselor or a trusted teacher may be another good resource for you. Expressing your struggles to them may also help for them to understand an external pressure that is negatively affecting your schoolwork. Please do keep in mind that school personnel are mandated reporters, and if you tell them about your abuse, they will have to file a report with the police. It sounds like this may be something that you are interested in, so that could be another way to approach the reporting.

    You said that you love your dad and would want to stay with him. It might be helpful if you are able to have a private conversation with him about this ongoing struggle with you, your siblings, and your mom. This can be a difficult conversation to have, and we here at the NRS provide have a conference calling resource. To use you would call in to us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929), talk about your situation, and then call out to whomever you want to have a discussion with, in this situation perhaps your dad. We act as a line of support for you and do our best to keep the conversation productive and compromise-driven.

    We are here to talk through these options or any others with you. Once again, our phone number number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929), and we are a completely confidential safeline available 24/7. We’re here to listen, here to help.

    Best of luck,
    NRS

    Hi my name is Sarah and I’m 13 years old, I don’t think I’ve seen any mother hit their kids as hard as my mom does. My mom has been abusive my whole life. I’m usually very depressed most of the time except at school because my mom isn’t there and my friends are there. My mom hits my sisters and I and I want to help my sisters but I know that I will get hurt even more than them. I don’t think my dad really notices because he’s always at work but I love my dad so much. He never gets mad with me and he’s my favorite person ever. I never cause trouble but I’m not doing that good in school. My mom is by far the worst human I’ve ever seen. I’m typing this right after she dragged me to the ground, pulled my hair to the point where I feel like it’s gonna completely get ripped out of my head, and she punched and slapped my face extremely hard. This happened because I got really mad for my mom taking my phone and my ipad. And there’s been much much worse of from what she’s done. I never ever hit my mom or say bad words to her. I want her to go to jail or something but i just don’t really know what to do. I definitely don’t want a foster home and I still want to live with my dad. I’m so confused on what to do and I really want to do something about it because my mom has been ruined my life

    Hey,
    Thank you so much for reaching out. It is really hurtful and mean that your mother compares you to other children, and it is absolutely never okay for your mom to hit you. You deserve to feel safe, supported, and loved where you are. We’re so sorry to hear that your mother isn’t providing that for you. It is concerning to us that you mention your mom hits you. Please know that this is not okay. While we are not legal experts, we can say that you have the right to file an abuse report. You can do that a couple of ways. First, you can confide in a teacher or a guidance counselor, who are mandated reporters and must report any abuse that they hear about to child protective services. Another resource is the National Child Abuse Hotline, which is 1-800-422-4453.
    Another option that you might consider is having a conversation with your mom about how she makes you feel when she compares you to other kids, and what she can do to support you better. Sometimes it can be helpful to have another adult there, like a guidance counselor or a therapist, while you have that conversation. Here are NRS, we are also able to help you have that conversation; one of our trained liners would be happy to call out to your mom with you and advocate for you. Yet another option you might consider is family counseling. If you need help locating an affordable counselor in your area, you can call the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration referral line at 1-877-726-4727.
    Thank you again for reaching out. It takes a lot of courage to share some of your story, so we’re glad that you found us. If you ever need someone to talk to or help you figure out your next steps, we’re open 24/7. You can always call. Our number is 1-800-786-2929. We hope this was helpful. If you have a minute, we encourage you to give your honest feedback of our forum services at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/we_care_what_you_think Your feedback really helps us serve young people like you  Good luck and stay safe!
