    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!

    Hi,

    Thanks so much for taking the time to reach out to us. It sounds like you may be going through something pretty difficult right now and we are sorry to hear about it. It definitely is not okay for your mother to hit you, whether she has a reason or not. There is no good reason to hit a youth. That could possibly be considered child abuse, and you have the right to report it if that is something you're interested in. You can reach out to the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-422-4453 or you can go onto their website at childhelp.org to read up more about what abuse is and what is may look like.

    You can also call into our hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We can talk more to you about what you are going through and come up with options together. We are 24/7 so you can call in any time you'd like! We wish you the best of luck with everything.

    Hello There!

    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway . It is a great first step to finding the information and help that you may need. Taking this step often takes much courage, which shows how strong of a person you in doing so. You are so strong for having gone through so much already.

    It sounds like you are considering your options because you are unsafe a home. We are sorry to hear that. No one should be made to feel this way. Home should be a place of love, support, comfort, and safety. You mentioned that you do not want to call anyone to let them know what is going on. Notifying cps does not always mean that you will be taken away. Sometimes it could be a way to get required anger management help for your mother There is not much anyone, including yourself that could control your mother’s behavior. You can only control your own. If your mother is interested in making some changes and is willing to talk about/seek help there are counseling services out there that could possibly help. SAMHSA( Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration) at 1877-726-4727 can help locate some of these services or you can call u at we could search our database of possible counseling services in your city and state. Your well-being and safety is a great concern. By all means, if you do fear for your safety in the future, do not hesitate to take the necessary steps to regain your safety. This may mean calling the police or possibly reporting the things you may be experiencing. You mentioned having friends that you talk to. Do you have any other trusted adults, family members, or teachers that you can turn to for support in keeping you safe? Sometimes having them on your side can help create a sense of comfort or support that will keep you safe.


    You are not alone. We can discuss your options with you if you’d like, as well as answer other questions you may have. We’re confidential and anonymous. We’re also here just to listen, if that’s what you need. If you want more information about cps reporting, what that means, or what that can look like for you, we are here to help guide you throughout that process and report with you, or can also call Child Help at 1800-422-4453 that would be able to connect you to your states reporting agency if that is something that you are comfortable doing.


    Best Wishes,
    NRS

    Guest started a topic My mom thinks bad of me and hits me whenever she gets mad.

    My mom thinks bad of me and hits me whenever she gets mad.

    I'm 13, and home is like a living nightmare to me. I got into skateboarding a couple months back to relieve stress and because it's fun, ever since then she constantly claims I'm on drugs (which i've never done in my life) and blames everything on it. She gets angry at me for the littlest things, and does nothing but hit me whenever she's angry at me or my dad. It's starting to get to be too much for me to handle, and I'm starting to fall under depression. I try to stay positive but it's hard when you come home to this house. I got detention yesterday, and instead of just letting me deal with the consequences at school, she grounded me at home, and when I said what she was doing was too far she kept hitting me and we got into a big fight. I didn't hit her back, I pushed her away from me once to get her off me. She threw my skateboard at me, told me "Why are you such a ___? You are the biggest ______ I know, this is why no one likes you. Go up to your room and shut the ___up" I just want her to stop, but I don't want to call anybody for it. I don't want to have to move or go through therapy or anything, I think she just needs help with anger management but she doesn't seem to get it. I don't know what to do, because I have great friends in my town that I can talk to this about and that help me through it. Moving or going into foster care would make it so much worse. I'm really confused on what to do
