    Hi there,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on between you and your mom. 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.
    The easiest way to leave home is with your mom’s permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your mom. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.
    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 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
    We hope to hear from you soon.
    Be safe, NRS

    Hi there,

    Thank you for contacting us here at the National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help, so thank you for sharing your situation and how you're feeling with us. Please know that you do not deserve the emotional abuse that your mom is putting you through. You deserve to be accepted for who you are, to be loved and cared for at home. Your mom is saying these things because of who SHE is, not because of who you are. We're glad that your friend and their family are there for you, we want you to know that we are here to support you as well.

    If you ever need to talk through the depression you're feeling, feel free to call SAMHSA’s National Helpline at 1-800-662-HELP (4357). They are a national organization that specializes in providing confidential, 24/7 mental health services. Additionally, if you'd like to talk more about your specific situation or running away, we are here. We're happy to help you look for shelters or provide other resources you need. NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email or bulletin for assistance, so if you would like to talk more in detail, please call or chat soon.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out, we understand it can be hard to take that first step. We’re glad you feel this is a safe space to talk about what’s been going on. It sounds like things have been pretty frustrating not only at home but with friends. It can feel like the days pass so slowly, but what is important is that you make it to that date where you will feel you are finally enjoying the life you have. Hold on to that, the feelings of not being able to do much as a minor are temporary. 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.

    Man I feel u everyday after school I trap myself inside my room and wait for it to turn night to get my dinner then sleep. All I do is sit on my phone everyday and eat and sleep. when I ask what’s wrong when she’s mad or something she replies with “my birth” and I’m just so depressed and bored in this house I don’t even know what to do it’s been like this for almost two years now my life is a living hell. Then I got friends telling me that they want to hangout and when I finally build up the courage to ask my step dad for a ride he very surprisenly said he could bring me then I call my friend to let him know and he tells me never mind and I just start crying because I finally had the feeling of freedom and doing something other than doing nothing all day then boom after all day of being excited my friend just turns me down like that. I just want a normal life like all the other kids in my school and family they got I’m just done living like this and just counting the years down until I can move out and be free.

    Thanks for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. You made a great first step to finding the help that you may need. It sounds like you are going through a lot and the people around you are not being supportive. You deserve to be treated with respect, to experience acceptance and to feel safe.

    We want you to know that you are strong for having gone through so much already. It is perfectly okay to deviate from what others or the common population believe to be “normal”. You’re bravery and resilience is so admirable. You are so strong for having gone through so much without having the acceptance that you do deserve for just being you. Remember that you are not alone. If you ever want to talk more about what you are experiencing or get additional support we are here 24/7 at 1800-RUNAWAY or our live chat service. The GLBT National Hotline at 1888-843-4564 is another option to gain great support from those that are familiar with the issues and experiences of those that are also a part of the LGBTQ community. You can access their website link bellow to utilize all the other possibly useful resources they have to offer: http://www.glbthotline.org/

    You mentioned that you were considering the options that may be best for you. By all means, if you do fear for your safety either now or in the future, do not hesitate to take the necessary steps to regain your safety. This may mean calling the authorities or possibly reporting the things you may be experiencing. Other options to think about may be other family members, friends, or a trusted adults that would be able to provide you with support or a safe place to stay. It is great that you thinking ahead. Should you feel like leaving home is best, it may be a good idea to think about how you will provide necessities for yourself such as food, clothing, showers, healthcare and other basic needs. You may want to also consider how your parent’s will react to you leaving without permission. We are not legal experts here, but typically as a minor (under the age of 1 you need permission from your parents to leave home. It is not illegal to runaway, but it would mean that your parents could file a runaway report with the police. This is usually done in an effort to try to return you home as the police are required to do so.

    If you can give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY or reach out through Live Chat we can try to find some youth shelters that may be near your city and state by utilizing our database of resources. We can also try to call out to shelters with you or on your behalf to advocate for you.

    Stay Strong,
    NRS

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for reaching out, it sounds like things have been quite overwhelming at home. 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).
    You don't deserve to be hurt in any 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.
    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 mentioned not wanting to go with your dad due to him living in another state. We believe your safety is priority, if you need any help with legal resources to get to him we can help find aid in your state.

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

    Same thing with me. I'm 11 and I'm honestly tired of living with my mom. Every day things get worse and I suggested family counseling but she just said we don't need it. My mom has also taken away mvu mall of my devices and the only reason I'm able to write this is because I had to break into her room while she was sleeping and it's currently 1:03 AM. I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to talk to anyone about what's happening because the only person I can tell is my best friend and I have very limited time to communicate with her, I'm not even sure how much longer I can communicate with her. My household doesn't hold a family anymore. It holds people who don't want to be under the same roof. I want to do something about this because, I forgot to mention, my mom has also been verbally and emotionally abusing me. There hasn't really been any physical abuse, but I'm scared it will come to that. She has threatened me multiple times saying that shell will harm me. I have no privacy, my door knob is removed, and I really don't want to live her anymore but I don't want to leave my only and best friend, I don't want to move to ******* with my dad, my dad speaks spanish and

    Thank you for contacting us. Reaching out for help takes a lot of courage. It sounds like you have a very difficult situation at home. We totally understand that it may feel hopeless for you and you can’t see a way for all this to get better. There are options for you and we would like to discuss those further with you. You can reach out to us for a chat through our website or call our crisis hotline at 1 (800) RUNAWAY. Both are completely confidential and available anytime 24/7. We understand that you might not think there are options for you because your Mom is not helping you, but there are services we can find in your area to get help for you. We are a non-directive agency-that means we will help you figure out a plan to work with the services in your area that feels right for you and is safe. While you can always call us for help with suicidal thoughts and feelings, you can also reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline as well. They are at 1 (800) 273 8255. We hope to hear from you soon. Good luck.

    Hey there, thanks for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline (NRS). Thank you for sharing some of what’s going on. It’s sounds like you’re working hard at school for your senior year of high school while also going through a challenging time.

    We offer a Conference Call service if you want help talking to your mom. This might be a way to open up the lines of communication when you feel stuck. We can also look up Family Counselor options in your local area if you use our Chat or Hotline services to contact us if you’d like to try that avenue of communication with your mom.

    You might also try writing your mom a letter to share what you’re feeling and what you think might improve the stress at home. Sometimes trying to putting things down on paper can help us think through what we want to say as well as be an avenue for someone to try to hear us better.

    It sounds like you might be looking for advice, and unfortunately we cannot give advice as we are non-directive. If you’d like further contact to explore options or receive emotional support, please contact us via our ONLINE CHAT SERVICE at www.1800runaway.org (click on the CHAT button) or our HOTLINE at 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929). We are here for you and wish you all the best, NRS.

    I’m a 17 year old that lives with my mom and two little siblings. I have only 1 semester left of high school until I leave for university. The thing is, I can’t stay here any longer.. ever since she separated with my stepdad, she’s changed a lot. A lot of the times she’s stressed out, but then she throws the stress on me. She complains on how I don’t help her at all, which is false because when I do help out she says “I’m fine”. Being a senior in high school is pretty challenging, but living with my mom is even worse. She always asks me to help her at the wrong times ESPECIALLY last minute. (Mainly when I’m doing school work). It mainly happens over stupid situations that literally don’t even need to happen. For example, she would cram a bunch of stuff into her schedule and then complain about how she has no time, and then take it out on me. Her problem is she is very bad with time management, and that interferes with my schoolwork.. my mom would put herself in stressful situations and then complain about being stressed, I don’t understand. It’s pretty frustrating, I literally only have a few more months and I don’t have to deal with this anymore, but I can’t wait any longer. If I stay anymore I feel like I’m literally going to lose my sanity. I just don’t understand that woman.

    advice please???
