    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much violence. You mentioned a couple things about your mom punching you and hitting you in the stomach and face, this raises some concern about your safety and well-being. Absolutely no one deserves to be abused. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. You stated that you don't want anything to happen to your mom at home - it's a lot to take on the burden of her well-being in addition to your own. Reporting is a hard and personal decision to make but it is important to think about your own safety. If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering. You can also speak with any kind of medical staff (doctor, nurse, etc.), police officer, or teacher about the abuse for help filing a report. It may also be a good idea to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.

    Your mom's behavior is unacceptable and you are so strong for having to hadto go through this. If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

    Stay safe,

    Hi I’m 12 turning 13 this month, my mom recently got a boyfriend and he constantly verbally abuses her, and she always takes her anger out on me, she’s punched he in the stomach and earlier today she hit my face, whenever I show that I’m angry at her she always ends up crying and telling me that she’s sorry and I forgive her but I can’t do this anymore, she constantly gets mad at me over little stuff, for example: I was taking a shower and I had taken my clothes off and left them on the floor in my bathroom, and she started banging very loudly at 6:00 in the morning ( I was getting ready for school ) saying to unlock the door so I unlocked it and she just started complaining, and saying that I was making faces at her, and I wasn’t then she punched me in the face and I was trying to say that I’m sorry but she just started yelling at me and telling me to shut up. I don’t know what to do anymore sometimes I think I want to runaway but I can’t because shes my mom and I don’t want anything to happen to her at home.

    We are really sorry to hear about your depression and all the mistreatment you are getting at home. That's not right and it really should stop. It sounds like you have a good relationship with your dad. Perhaps you can open a bit more about this to him. Of course, you can also file an abuse report with your state's child protective services. But that's up to you.

    We'd like to help more so if you can give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY that would be great. We are confidential, nonjudgmental, and here 24/7. You can also chat with us online by clicking on the chat feature at the top of our main website: www.1800runaway.org. We hope to hear from you soon.

    Hey,I'm 13 years old and since I got low grades in school and started getting skinnier my mom started yelling..swearing..slaping..and pushing (hitting) me...I..I once told my friends that I was lowkey depressed and they started to react shocked and worried at first and comforted me for like 5 minutes only...after that day we stopped talking that much because well yeah I'm in a new class now...They forgot about me being lowkey depressed...by the time I was getting more in depression because of my mother and my sisters. I have 3 other sisters and my mom's pregnant again. I have an older sister and 2 younger ones. I bet that she hits me because I'm the middle child,never talking back at her if she's slapping me,ignoring her and so on...I used to cry after she hits me and leaves but now..I got used to it and well yeah,I guess that you could say that I stopped crying. She only hits my when my father is sleeping/not at home. My father is so lovely and nice to me..I'm so happy that I atleast have him. My mother also hits me when my little sister starts crying out of nowhere,she thinks that it's my fault when she's crying. I hope that it'll change..I wish you all good luck with your family/friends..

    Thank you for telling us your story and reaching out. It can be difficult telling others what has happened to you and you have been very brave to do so. We want you to know that no one deserves to be abused, and you should not have to go through that. If you haven’t already, you could consider reporting the abuse you and your siblings have been experiencing. If you want more information about abuse reporting or if you want to file a report, you could call Child Help at 1-800-422-4453. We’re also sorry to hear that you’ve thought of suicide in the past. Your life is very important. If you begin having those thoughts again and want to talk with someone anonymously, please don’t hesitate to reach out for help. One resource that might work for you is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. You can reach them at 1-800-273-8255. They also have an internet chat function through their website at suicidepreventionlifeline.org.

    Since you are 18 in most states you are legally able to leave without your mother’s consent. If you are not comfortable leaving your siblings with your mother based on how she has treated you Nationalsafeplace.org provides a safe location for youth to meet a staff member who can take them to a designated place where they can discuss all options about how to stay safe. They can text 44357 the word “safe,” and their location to find a safe location in your area. Once they arrive let someone who works there know they need help connecting with a staff member.

    It is not illegal for youth to leave home especially if it is not a safe environment but parents could file a runaway report, the police could get involved, and they could bring the youth home. You could consider calling your local nonemergency police department to ask about their policies. We also have legal aid resources here if you have specific questions about the laws in your state. Sometimes even finding another family member to stay with could be helpful. You mentioned not knowing how tell someone what has happened to you due to embarrassment. It can be difficult to manage situations like this and you don’t have to do it alone. One service we can offer is to conference call with a family member. This way you could have a conversation with your family but you would not be alone. For example, it may be hard for you to explain to someone what has happened to you and what you have gone through Sometimes those conversations go better in a conference call because we can advocate for you and help support you through the process.

    Again, thank you for contacting us. It sounds like you’ve been going through a really hard time, but you’ve shown a lot of strength by working through these challenges and reaching out for help. If you ever need anything in the future, please feel free to call our 24 hour hotline at 1-800Runaway (786-2929) or use our live chat. We hope this information was helpful and take care.

    Hi, I became 18 years old last week and have been in a similar situation that all the people before me have had to go through, my mother has been hitting me since I can remember but in the past years after middle school she has been hitting me with more strength and dangerous objects because I was already "old enough" to be hitted more seriously, I have always done great at school and would always keep my grades high so that I could go study for my career and I even got into the university of my choice and received enough money to pay for my college's tuition which was the best birthday gift I have relieved, but classes begin next Monday and my mother told me that she is not going to support me throught college and that really saddens me, but if it is for my future I can work hard enough to make it through without her support. Having her hit me everytime she gets mad at me and insults me by telling me that I am a failure and many different swearings has made me really angry to the point where sometimes I feel depressed and it has been like that for the past 6 years that is has become a regular thing. Even when she hits me or takes my stuff, I never hit her back or swear to her but I have to go through a lot anger that I contain in myself to not fall in her mental traps, I used to hurt myself by punching the wall whenever this happened back in middle school until I got a punching back to relieve my stress, I even had suicidal thoughts but never really decided to cross that line because I believe that talking my life would be an insult to God who gave me the gift of a healthy life and a family that others do not have. She has told me many times to get out of the house because she no longer thought of me as her son, sometimes when she would insult me, hit me and take my stuff I would hide her phone from her because that thing has made her neglect my two younger siblings many times and has even hurt them in minor ways, and yelled at them with more swearing even thought my younger brother is 11 years old and my little sister is only 6 and because of this, they have changed as well. My father is not as bad toward as like my mother but even he is everyday growing more tired of her toxic personality and has never hit her back even when she does because of anger, and the only reason why he does not want to divorce her is because of us, since he does not want to have my siblings grow without a mother. I believe that my mother is not a bad person, she would use to tell me about her hard childhood along her sisters and her deceased mother at a young age, her step mother would abuse them in many ways and even manipulate her dad into getting rid of them at an older age so I sometimes justify her anger problems with her traumatic life as a child. However, now I believe that does not excuse her treatment toward her family because the actions her step mother would cruelly commit that she always criticized are reflect in my mother today, even her toxic personalities became similar ironically. Even my father has become her "puppet" at this point as he does everything my mom tells him to do and I have gotten into a couple of fights with him because of my mom telling him to hurt me or takes my stuff and most of the time I do not care if they take my stuff I would just wait weeks or months to get them back even if my mom would tease me to get mad at her so that she can use it as an excuse and keep my things longer or insult me more but I just try to ignore her and not express my anger to words eventhough I never swear in front of my family since I don't like it, my mother also blames my dad for not investing time into our family since he is always either. working or sleeping and eventhough she is right in the lack of effort done by my dad to invest time with his family she will most of the time overreact and make everyone her enemy no matter where we are but she is smart, since she only shows her true colors to us and not her friends or family she will always blame others for her attitude. Yesterday, I took her phone again after she insulted me and hit me for no reason whatsoever, I had just finished washing the dishes and I took a bath after finishing, when I got out some of my stuff was gone because every time she has an opportunity she takes something from me, even money which she takes even from my dad, I was angry because of the many times she would repeatedly do this so I took her phone so that my dad could see her drastic change in attitude when I take her phone but once again he neglected her violent response toward this and told me to give it back instantly after she told him to do so but I locales myself in the bathroom once again because I don't want to fight my dad again because of her since it would always result in me getting hit and sweared at by him and as he tries to break the door while threatening to kick me out of the house when I get out unless I return the phone and I wait hours to get out of the bathroom until it is past midnight and they are asleep and so can I. Today I was woke up by my mom when she whipped me with my T.V. power cord as usual while yelling "Where is my _______ phone?! Give me my ______ phone NOW!" I did not had enough strength to react to the whipping, but given how used to being whipped by my parents I have grown well over to the pain and am used to enduring but depending on what I am being hit by I can feel the pain or barely feel it at this point, as I tried to stand Up and her out she started to throw my things and told me that she was going to threw it to the mobile trash can but I tried to take my most high valued things from her hand which she was responded with slaps and strikes with a closed hand that I just took while trying to take them from her then she told my siblings to throw my stuff to the trash because as well and I could not do anything but watch, I suddenly reacted with anger after watching everything and grabbed one of her bags and threw it outside the house and that puedes her off a lot, she pushed me toward the ground but I did not fall, then she took one of my sister's bigger plastic dolls and swinged at my torso with a great force and speed that luckily only have two bruises on the torso and my clothes were torned out a bit from her grabbing me, she even threw stuff that was at the ground toward me while I covered myself and then threatened to make sure that my dad would kick me out of the house for sure this time when she came back. I got out of the house and I don't know what to do now. Everytime I give up and return her phone it just ends up being the same thing all over again she swear, she hits and does not change. I am tired of the same cycle that has been going on for the past years, I have never had the courage to call the cops because I am afraid they will not help me like they have done with other people and nobody knows about this, I cannot tell my friends about it because of the embarrassment it makes me feel about being in this situation and now that I am 18 years old I feel less confident of being heard I don't want to go through the suicidal thought I used to have, my parents believe I am not the kind of person to have such thoughts, even I can not believe I can have such thoughts again but it is hard to stay positive. Even if I keep helping at home and doing what they told me to do, they are never satisfied. I want to study and have a respetable career, live by myself maybe find someone and make that person happy so I can finally be truly happy with my life and live a peaceful life. But I don't know what to do considering my options are only going to result in an uneffective solution and now being 18 years old, I fear for my safety and the safety and future of my siblings who have to live many more years like me under this situation, but I don't want them to go to a Foster home or be affected by my choice to seek help, I just want to know what is the best decision I can make to stop this from happening again, please.

    I'm 14, and i have the same problem. My mom hits me and she has even picked me up off of the ground by my hair. When I was little she would spank me so hard that i would end up with bruses. She has slapped me so hard that i had a red print where she hit me. I never told anyone because i was told not to. My parents are divorced i feel like i should tell my dad. My home turns into a nightmare. With my mom favoring my little sister, its hard to stay positive. Im filled with anxiety when she is around me. once, i was telling the truth but, she wont believe me, she only sees what she wants to see.Later on she called me lying because of it.

    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline.

    First, we want you to know that if you or your siblings are ever in an emergency or unsafe situation, you can always call 911 right away.

    It sounds like there is a lot going on at home, and we are glad you reached out to us for help. We can tell how much you care for you siblings by reaching out on their behalf like this. We are confidential and non-directive (meaning we don’t tell anyone what to do), and can be reached at 1-800-RUNAWAY if you ever want to speak to someone here in person.

    We are not legal experts, but we can give you some general information. Anyone under the age of majority in your state (usually 18 years old) is considered a minor whose guardian is legally responsible for them. If that guardian is behaving in a way that is harmful to the minor or not providing appropriately for the minor, an abuse and/or neglect report can be filed with Child Protective Services (CPS).

    You don’t mention which brother was hit in the face. If you feel this situation is an instance of child abuse, the National Child Abuse Hotline can be reached at 1-800-422-4453. Also, alcohol being offered to minors and marijuana in the house could also be something to report.

    It sounds like you have experience with CPS, and not being listened to. If contacting CPS again is something you would like to do, we can support you in that decision in a few ways: we can make a report with CPS with you on the line at the same time, we can give you the number so you can talk to them on your own, or we can take the information about what’s going on and call CPS on our own once we end the call. We are here to help you in whatever way suits you best.

    Thank you again for contacting us. We can be reached 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY, and we encourage you to call in if you are comfortable. We are confidential, and we want to help.

    Be safe,

    NRS

    Hi, so I have a 21 year old brother who got hit by my mother today. I'm 18 and also have a 20 year old brother, a 13 year old brother, and a 2 year old sister. My mother spends alot of time out and leaves us to watch my little sister. She smokes pot in the house with my little sister and also has given drinks to all of us children above 18. She hit my brother today in the face and I'm more or less wondering if she hits my brother and he hits her back what are the consequences. Can my brother go to jail and if he does, will me and my other brothers be able to call CPS and actually be listened to?

    Hello,

    You mentioned some things that raise concern for your safety and well-being. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. We are not experts on the issue, but generally once it's been reported, social services will either decide whether or not to take the case and further investigate. If they do take the case, they will send out someone from child protective services to do an investigation (interviewing people in the household) and from there they will decide the level of danger within the household. It generally ranges from no danger (the youth stays in the home, some services are given, and the case is closed), moderate danger (they will provide family services with possible temporary displacement) and high danger (they will remove the youth from the home and offer certain services).

    If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering.

    Please be safe and reach out soon by phone or chat so that we may help.
    Take care,
    NRS
