  • Is there a way to get out ?

    For the past 16 years I've been living with my parents and my half brother. Every day I am being told how much of a worthless piece of ******** I am. I recently had a girlfriend who my parents didn't approve of because they didn't like our age difference of three years. And did not like that she is a girl. She was my best friend for a while and things just became more than that. I had a girlfriend before and they didn't care. I don't know how to keep going on. They don't trust me. I've never done anything to make them not trust me. They say I lie about everything. I recently just had surgery and now they're blaming me for our money issues. I understand that they can keep me in the house. They don't let me go out much but that's not the problem. I don't feel safe in my house. I'm scared they will start hitting me again. I don't know what to do. Please help.

    Thank you for posting to our bulletin service.
    We want you to know that abuse whether its physical, sexual, emotional or verbal, it is never okay and you do not deserve it and do have the right to report it. You might want to think about making a report with Child Protective Services. Child Help USA is an information and referral line that can connect you with your local CPS abuse hotline. That number is 1-800-422-4453. If you ever felt like making a report or needed help, we are here to assist with that. We understand that making an abuse report can be intimidating so if you like we can call together to provide support.
    We are sorry to hear that your parents do not trust you and do not approve of the girl that you are dating. We can imagine that this is extremely frustrating for you. Is there anyone that you have been able to talk to about what has been going on at home? If you want we can go through our database and provide you with referrals to general counseling services in your area.
    You mentioned that you do not feel safe in your house. If you ever need a safe place to go, we also can provide you with various resources for agencies in whatever area they are in to best help them during this difficult time. You can always call us to talk about what you are going through and receive some support. We provide free, confidential, and nonjudgmental services. Everyone deserves to be respected and loved.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
